Early Life and Career Information

John Legend was born on December 28, 1978, in Springfield, Ohio, to Ronald Lamar Stephens and Phyllis Elaine Lloyd. His father was a factory worker at International Harvester, whereas his mother was a seamstress. Legend’s parents were also involved in music besides their regular jobs. Ronald was a drummer, whereas Phyllis was a music director at her local church choir. John’s grandmother was the leading church organist. So, music pretty much runs in his family’s blood.

Coming from a family with a musical history, it was only expected that John Legend would develop an interest in music at a fairly tender age. And those expectations turned out to be true.

Legend began playing the piano at the tender age of 4. By the time he was 7 years, he was already a regular member of his local church choir.

John Legend’s musical talents continued to show throughout his high school and college years. In college, Legend served as the president as well as musical director for a jazz and pop a cappella group known as The Counterparts.

After graduating from college with a bachelor’s degree in English in 1999, John Legend shortly worked at the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) as the management consultant. It’s during this time that Legend officially kicked off his music career. He went on to release two independent albums over the next two years – John Legend (2000) and Live at Jimmy’s Uptown (2001).

Over the next three years, Legend collaborated with numerous established artists and leveraged their popularity to grow his personal brand. He eventually released his debut studio album in 2004, titled Get Lifted. The album was both a critical and commercial success. It debuted at the #7 position on the US Billboard 200 and sold at least 116,000 copies in its first week alone, before going on to win the 2006 Grammy Award for Best R & B Album.

In 2006, John Legend released his second album, Once Again. The album hit the #3 spot on the Billboard 200. The single ‘Heaven’ off the album won the 2007 Grammy Award in the category Best Male R & B Vocal Performance.

John Legend has since followed up with five more studio albums and two collaboration albums. They include:

• Evolver (2008)
• Love in the Future (2013)
• Darkness and Light (2016)
• A Legendary Christmas ( 2021)
• Bigger Love ( 2021)
• Wake Up! (with the Roots) (2010)
• Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert (Original Soundtrack of the NBC Television Event) ( 2021)

Besides music, John Legend has also appeared in numerous films and television shows. He made his cinematic debut in the 2008 movies Sesame Street: Elmo Loves You! and Soul Men.

In 2012, Legend lent his voice to the movie The Savoy King: Chick Webb & the Music That Changed America, before going on to produce Southside with You, the same year.

Some of the television shows that John Legend has appeared in include; Curb Your Enthusiasm (2006), Dancing with the Stars (2010), and The Voice ( 2021 – present).
