John Legend (John Roger Stephens) is an American singer, songwriter, musician and actor. In 2001, Devo Springsteen introduced Legend to then up-and-coming hip-hop artist Kanye West. After signing to West’s label, he chose his stage name from an idea that was given to him by poet J. Ivy, who stated, “I heard your music and it reminds me of that music from the old school. You sound like one of the legends. As a matter of fact, that’s what I’m going to call you from now on! I’m going to call you John Legend.” Despite Legend’s reluctance to change his stage name, he eventually announced his new artist name as John Legend.
He has won ten Grammy Awards, one Golden Globe Award, and one Academy Award. In 2007, John Legend received the Hal David Starlight Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame. His career gained momentum through a series of successful collaborations with already established artists. For his solo work, he earned a Billboard Hot 100 number-one single with “All of Me” in 2013. He won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2015 for writing the song “Glory” from the film Selma.
