Early life and Education
Legend was born John Roger Stephens in Springfield, Ohio, on December 28, 1978. Legend’s grandmother taught him how to play the piano as a child prodigy, and he grew up singing in the church choir. He then went on to direct a co-ed a cappella group at the University of Pennsylvania.
He changed gears after college and went to work for Boston Consulting Group, although he continued to play in New York City nightclubs. He was immediately introduced to Kanye West, an up-and-coming hip-hop artist, and the two musicians cooperated on demos.
Legend’s debut album, Get Lifted, was certified platinum in 2004, thanks in part to the breakthrough tune “Ordinary People,” which he co-wrote with the Black Eyed Peas. For Get Lifted, he received three Grammy Awards: best R&B album, best R&B male vocal performance, and best new artist. Once Again, Legend’s sophomore album, was released in 2006.
Evolver was the first of numerous new albums he released soon after (2008). “Green Light,” a collaboration with André 3000, was featured on Evolver. This song was a minor hit, and the album as a whole charted at the top of the R&B/hip-hop charts.
Legend released Wake Up! in 2010, which he co-wrote with The Roots. Music critics praised the album, which included covers of songs made popular by Marvin Gaye and Nina Simone.
During the summer of 2012, Legend tried his hand at reality television with the singing competition Duets. He collaborated with Sugarland’s Kelly Clarkson, Robin Thicke, and Jennifer Nettles. The musical celebrities tutored and performed with the show’s competitors. Legend later contributed new music to Quentin Tarantino’s film Django Unchained later that year.
Love in the Future, Legend’s third solo album, was released in 2013, and included the No. 1 ballad “All of Me,” as well as songs like “Made to Love” and “You & I (Nobody in the World).” The songwriter won a Golden Globe for Best Original Song—”Glory”—from the film Selma in 2015, alongside rapper Common. The song was also nominated for a Grammy and an Academy Award, and both performers used their Oscar acceptance speeches to bring up current topics related to the Civil Rights Movement.
Legend’s latest single, “Love Me Now,” was released on October 7, 2016. In December, he released Darkness and Light, his sixth solo studio album, which features Miguel and Chances the Rapper as collaborators.

Legend went on to win the show as the winning coach with his choice of Maelyn Jarmon, before returning in the autumn of 2019 for season 17 of the show.
In 2006, filmmaker Nabil Elderkin introduced Legend to model Chrissy Teigen during her appearance in the music video for his song “Stereo.” They were engaged in December 2011 and married in Como, Italy .on September 14, 2013.
