John Legend at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, CA

Since John Legend’s debut release Get Lifted in 2004 he has won an Oscar, Golden Globe, Tony, 10 Grammys. And was the first African-American artist to have won all four awards  (EGOT) and second youngest. Legend also has collaborated with Jay-Z, Alicia Keys and Lauryn Hill. Between 2004 and 2008, Legend has released an album every 2 to 3 years. From 2013 and 2018, he's released an album between 2 and a half years. At the end of October Legend released his first Christmas album titled A Legendary Christmas which included guests like Stevie Wonder and Esperanza Spalding. Legend played a 25-date tour supporting the album and stopped at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, CA on Dec. 23.

Legend is easily one of the top performers over the last two decades and whether behind a mic or piano he’s a lot of fun to watch. Legend played Christmas songs off his new album and a few of his biggest hits like “Ordinary People,” “You & I (Nobody In the World),” “Love Me Now,” and an encore of “All of Me” and “Merry Christmas.” Not only was the show great musically but also visually with all the great graphics throughout the show and wardrobe.
