John Legend To Take Stage At Governors Ball

Alicia Keys Tour- Melbourne

Nine-time Grammy Award winner, John Legend, has been invited to take the stage at the official post-Oscars celebration, the Governors Ball.  The 35-year-old singer/songwriter will be performing for 1,500 guests, which include Oscar winners, nominees and other luminaries, in the Ray Dolby Ballroom on Sunday, March 2.

Legend garnered eight Grammy nominations for his 2004 debut album “Get Lifted,” which earned him the win for Best R&B Album. That same year, he also won best new artist of the year and best male R&B vocal performance for his hit single “Ordinary People.” Legend’s songs have been featured in soundtracks of films, such as “Waiting for Superman,” “Think Like a Man” and “Django Unchained.”

It’s no wonder Jeffrey Kurland, Costume Design Branch governor and chair of the Governors Ball, noted the singer’s accomplishments in a statement saying, “John Legend is one of the industry’s most innovative and talented artists.”

Legend’s fourth solo album “Love in the Future” has been nominated for best R&B album at the upcoming Grammy Awards. Be sure to catch the Academy Award winners on March 2, televised live on the ABC Television Network.
