Long before garnering a renowned reputation as a multiple Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter, John Legend
was born John Roger Stephens in Springfield, Ohio. A child prodigy, Legend was taught how to play the piano by his grandmother
at the tender age of five. He also spent much of his childhood singing in the church choir. Legend went on to earn a degree
at the University of Pennsylvania, where he directed a coed a cappella group.
After he graduated, he took a different
path and worked for Boston Consulting Group but continued to gig at nightclubs in the Big Apple. He soon became an in-demand
session musician and songwriter, working with acclaimed artists like Janet Jackson and Alicia Keys.
After an introduction
to hip-hop artist Kanye West, he and West paired their talents to work on each other's demos. Legend went on to release his
first album, 2004′s Get Lifted, which claimed platinum status thanks in part to the single, Ordinary People, a tune
he originally intended for the Black Eyed Peas. He took home three Grammy Awards for Get Lifted for best R&B male vocal
performance, best new artist and best R&B album.
