This man crush has a soulfulness and gospel ring to his voice. The first time I heard his voice i had to do a double take and later found out that it was none other than John Legend. With a smoothness as Marvin Gaye and yet the grit of Teddy Pendergrass, Legend continues to make a name for himself album after album. It’s just not only his voice, but he is definitely easy on the eyes.
Considered a prodigy of his era, Legend has played, arranged and written some of the best songs. He recently won 3 Grammys for his collaboration with group The Roots on his latest cd entitled WAKE UP!
If you have not had chance to see him perform, then you are definitely missing out on something very rare and appealing. He brings to the soul lounge and then takes you to church all in one performance. Tackling the subject of love and relationships has made the smooth crooner a hit with fans, a perk that he admittedly enjoys. “When I’m on stage, I want to feel like a sex symbol. It gives you that extra swagger. It gives you that extra confidence that you need when you go out there. You want to hear them screaming [and] going crazy,” the heart-throb confesses with a sly smile. “I’m not walking around like I’m always a sex symbol, but when I’m on stage, I eat it up. It feels good.” There is a YouTube video you must see of Legend performing his song “Slow Dance”. Let’s just say the video, shows just how excited he gets on stage with his fans.
Recent pictures surfaced of Legend, shirtless as he took his bull-dog for a walk on the streets of Miami.
