There is no doubt that John Legend is one of the most talented men around. After releasing his debut album, Get Lifted, in 2004, John quickly became a household name.

The album won a GRAMMY Award for Best R&B Album, setting the stage for the singer’s boisterous career. Since then, John has continued to produce hit after hit, with songs like "Ordinary People" and "All of Me" cementing his status as a musical icon.

In 2018, John became the first black male EGOT winner – a title given to performers with an Emmy, a GRAMMY, an Oscar, and a Tony.

“It's kind of surreal. It's something I never even thought about when I started my career,” John said after winning an Emmy for producing Jesus Christ Superstar Live (via Entertainment Tonight).
