Hire John Legend:
GRAMMY award-winning R&B artist, John Legend, was born John Stephens. He was given the name Legend by a friend from Chicago who thought he sounded like an old-school artist.
Philly-bred singer, songwriter, and pianist John Legend was born into a musical family that was active in the church. His brother is the singer, Vaughn Anthony. With such influence, the young Legend embraced gospel, classic soul, and hip-hop. The fusion of all three currently epitomizes his unique sound.

His family moved from Ohio to Pennsylvania when he was a child. He was playing the piano and singing in the church choir from an early age. He performed and recorded with various groups as well as a solo artist while attending college at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and subsequently became seriously involved with the area’s neo-soul explosion of the late 1990s.

The musical influences of his childhood included classic Soul and Gospel singers ranging from Stevie Wonder and Al Green to Shirley Caesar and Edwin Hawkins, as well as more modern acts like Jodeci and Boyz II Men. He served as musical director at Bethel A.M.E. Church for nearly a decade during high school and college.
Before becoming a mainstream artist, John Legend often hit the nightclub circuit in New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC, performing as an independent artist and distributing live LPs such as “Live at SOB’s”. It was John Legend‘s roommate and former classmate at Penn, Devon Harris, who introduced Legend to his cousin and then up-and-coming hip hop artist Kanye West.

Legend sang many of the melodic hooks on West’s demo, which would eventually become the Grammy Award-winning “The College Dropout” and West provided rhythm tracks for Legend’s demo, which would evolve into “Get Lifted.”
“Get Lifted” was his major label debut album, released by Columbia Records in 2004, although he had already amassed numerous credits, including session work with Alicia Keys, Janet Jackson, Talib Kweli, Jay-Z, Britney Spears, the Black Eyed Peas and Lauryn Hill.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE JOHN LEGEND?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire JOHN LEGEND for an event?)
(i.e., what is JOHN LEGEND booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for JOHN LEGEND, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at any time without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when the artist becomes less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at any time. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
