Multitalented Grammy award-winning artist John Legend performs his hit songs including "Ordinary People," "Used to Love U," "So High" and "Green Light" at the Pearl in the Palms Las Vegas.
Since his debut, Legend has sold more than seven million albums worldwide and received nine Grammy awards, three Soul Train Awards, the BET Award for Best New Artist and the special Starlight Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Critics have called Legend a music genius and one of the most compelling and important singer/songwriters of this generation.
Legend released his fourth solo studio album, "Love in the Future," which was produced by Legend and longtime collaborators Kanye West and Dave Tozer. The new album features 16 original tracks and the single "All of Me" is currently climbing the charts.
Legend rose to recognition playing piano for Lauryn Hill on her song "Everything Is Everything." After graduating from college he caught the attention of hip-hop artist Kayne West who signed him to his G.O.O.D. music label. Legend started gaining attention as a collaborator with a variety of artists including West, Jay-Z, and Alicia Keys.
His debut album "Get Lifted" was released in 2004 an included the hit "Ordinary People." The album earned the artist two Grammy awards for Best R&B Album and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. In 2006 Legend released his album "Once Again." The album reached platinum status with the help of the hit singles "Save Room."
Legend's 2008 release, "Evolver," reached No. 1 on the Billboard R&B chart and topped the Billboard 200 chart, peaking at No. 4. It contained the hit sing "Green Light," which featured OutKast's Andre 3000. That album also featured collaborations with other artists including Pharrell and West. Millions of fans heard another single from the album, "If You're Out There," when Legend performed it for the Democratic National Convention in August 2008. The song, and Legend's performance, was a cry for a help and a lead-in to the album's entire message. In 2010, Legend's collaboration with the Roots, "Wake Up," won the Grammy for Best R&B Album.
