John Legend Tickets - He's Got Soul
John Legend has become a popular neo-soul singer and pianist, also a talented artist amidst crowds of industry-generated pop performers. His latest album, Evolver, arrived in October 2008 and is his third full-length studio set. He's been busy promoting the latest album with tours and various appearances throughout the nation, so make sure to catch him live onstage by going online and getting your own pair of John Legend tickets.
John Legend first stepped into the music industry when he was asked to play the piano on Lauryn Hill's "Everything Is Everything" in 1998. Legend was inspired to strike out on his own in pursuit of a music career and quickly began to develop a devoted following of fans as he appeared in big city nightclubs and bars throughout the country. Legend also found success as a studio musician, where he collaborated with and penned songs for artists like Alicia Keys, Janet Jackson and Kanye West. It was a good opportunity for Legend to get his feet wet in the industry, and his contacts ultimately led to a signing with West's new music label.
Legend's first release, 2004's Solo Sessions Vol. 1: Live at the Knitting Factory, included tracks like "Do What I Gotta Do," "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood," "If This World Were Mine" and "Motherless Child." His first studio album Get Lifted arrived the following year.
The record ultimately reached the Top Five on the Billboard 200 chart thanks partly to the strength of the popular single "Ordinary People." Other songs featured on the album included "Let's Get Lifted," "Used to Love U" and "She Don't Have to Know." Legend also earned recognition at the Grammy Awards that year, taking away the honors for Best R&B Album, Best R&B Male Vocal Performance and Best New Artist.
Legend emerged a year later with Once Again, which not surprisingly became a popular album with a good mix of easy-going and more dramatic tracks. Some of the notable tunes included "Save Room," "Heaven," "Maxine" and "Another Again." It landed on the Billboard 200 chart at the number three spot and managed to snag the top spot on the R&B/Hip Hop Albums Chart.
Legend has not lost his gleam over the years, as was evident on 2008's Evolver. His third studio album took a different direction musically than his previous releases and offered listeners a change in tune and tempo for the time being. Turn up your speakers and enjoy tunes such as "Green Light," "It's Over" and "If You're Out There."
It's anyone's best guess as to what changes Legend might make on his fourth studio album. He has remained quiet on the matter thus far. There is one thing that cannot be debated: John Legend rose up through the ranks as one of the industry's fastest rising stars and he seems fairly comfortable with his place in the sun. As such, he most likely will not be giving it up anytime soon. Get your John Legend tickets today and enjoy one of his live performances.
