About JOHN LEGEND:
Acclaimed, multi-platinum selling, Oscar, Golden Globe and 10x Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter John Legend has announced dates for his highly anticipated North American tour, Darkness and Light Tour. The tour announces on the heels of Legend’s fifth studio album Darkness and Light, which has received a plethora of critical praise since its December 2nd release on Columbia Records. USA Today hailed the album as John’s “most personal record” with tracks like “Right By You” which they described as “a heart –tugging rumination on his 7-month old daughter, Luna.” Time Magazine called the body of work “unflappably classy” while the New York Times said Legend “treats love as something far more complex than a panacea and a fount of perpetual reassurance, with music to match.” Continuing, the New York Times pointed to the album’s most recent anthemic hit single, “Love Me Now”, which they praised as “a seize the moment song”, that “revolves around an insistent, lo-fi piano figure, and its chorus first arrives with Mr. Legend nearly alone, singing over simple, fading chords”.
Legend also continues his successful foray into the world of film as one of the principles for production company Get Lifted Film Co., which has an executive producing credit on the 14-time Oscar-nominated film La La Land in which John also appears, playing a jazz band leader named Keith alongside stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. Legend also contributed to the film’s soundtrack with the original song “Start a Fire.” To date, La La Land has taken home an impressive six Golden Globe Awards, two SAG Awards and a PGA Award.
In 2007, Legend started The Show Me Campaign to give every child access to a quality education. In 2014, after years of championing educational equity through The Show Me Campaign, Legend founded FREEAMERICA, which aims to shine a light on the injustices of mass incarceration. Through both his education and criminal justice work, Legend is creating a movement to build just, equitable, and thriving communities by giving every person both freedom from systemic hurdles that hold them back and the opportunity to unlock their greatest potential.
