John Legend— our soulful, stage gracing, and award-winning crooner has joined the likes of Whoopi Goldberg after being one of the literal few to earn an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award (EGOT).

No easy feat, since there are less than 20 others; Legend is an appropriate last name for the man who recently accepted an Emmy for his role in NBC’s musical “Jesus Christ Superstar Live.” Let’s not forget to mention that Legend is the first black man to become an EGOT winner, legend(ary)!
To date, Legend has 10 Grammys to his name, an Oscar for Best Original Song for “Glory” (2015) and a co-producing Tony for Best Revival of a Play for the Broadway show “Jitney” (2017). Legend just so happens to be nominated for another award for outstanding actor in a limited series or movie at the 70th Primetime Emmy’s on September 17th.
Is Legend the hardest working man in show business? I’m sure his award mantle or shelves would allude to it. But if nothing else, Legend is the GOTE, and we will address him as such.
