Before he himself became famous he wrote songs for artists such as Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige and Kanye West.

As so many others John Legend grew up in a gospel environment, and from an early age he has been influenced by, among others, Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin; something which is easily heard in his music. It was Kanye West that first gave Legend a record deal in 2004; a deal that resulted in the album "Get Lifted" and nothing less than 3 Grammy's. "Used to love you" and "Ordinary people", both songs from the debut album, received frequent air-time on Norwegian radio. Later came hits such as "Save room", "Green light", "Wake up everybody" and last years "Tonight (best you ever had)". A truly socially engaged artist with over 1.9 million followers on Facebook...
