Why John Legend is Amazing
Do you A R&B music fan? Do you like to listen to music by people who have talent?
I believe John Legend is one of those artists.
Have you heard John Legend’s début album, Get Lifted? I became a fan the first time I heard it.
A few years back John Legend preformed at the Jubilee concert hall in Calgary, Alberta.
There was no way my wife Lien was going to let me miss this concert. After the contest was over I thanked her.
John Legend Live in Concert
You hear an announcement over the speakers saying, “Five minutes before John Legend is live on stage”. The atmosphere is very exciting. People are enjoying a few wine and cocktails before the concert starts. My wife and I make our way to our seats.
We can feel the energy of the auditorium as the crowd waits for the lights to dim. A few seconds later the lights go down and the crowd starts cheering.
Three violinist, one cello and guitar player come out on stage. The lights dim some more and now the spot light is on them. They concert starts with them playing very soft mood setting music.
A few moments later the lights go out. When they come back on John Legend is on stage. The crowd is now electric.
What an awesome build up to the start of the show.
He sits at the piano and starts to sing, “I was sent here for you! We were made to love, we were made to love! You were sent for me too, we were made to love, we were made to love!”
Wow! What a powerful voice and lyrics to start the concert. People are cheering and the concert hall is about to explode from all the excitement.
John Legend sings and plays piano for two hours. He goes through his music catalog one song at a time. He continues to play the piano and singing songs like, ‘Who Do We Think We Are’, ‘Used To Love U’, ‘Ordinary People’, ‘Let’s Get Lifted’, ‘Save Room’, ‘You & I’ and ‘All Of Me’ to name a few.
During the show he tells his story about being at a desk work. How he used to play the 5:30pm show at the Living Room, in New York City. He was happy to play when a handful of people showed up.
He talks about touring with Usher and Kanye West. John would play piano for Kanye, and enjoyed the opportunity to performance one song.
He talked about his grandmother and her influence on him and his music. He mentioned how he was on the Jimmy Fallon show and performing his version of a Bruce Springsteen song. One year later, Bruce Springsteen asked John if he could do at an event he would be honored at.
When the Boss requests your presence, how can you say no?
The All of Me Tour was amazing for all the people who attended. For those who have not attended one of his concert, all I can say is get your tickets next time.
The night was intimate and interactive just as you would expect from the artist and the venue. The emotion in his music is love, hurt and relationships. Everyone can relate to his music.
It was amazing to see and hear the crowd sing along, cheering, holding hand and each other.
If you do not listen to John Legend because you are not a fan of his music, all I can say he is one of the greatest voices of our generation.
