The Grammys: Philly Soul Edition - John Legend

John Legend, born John Roger Stephens, may have been raised in Ohio but his sound is pure Philly Soul. The University of Pennsylvania graduate was an integral part of the musical climate there, eventually lending his piano playing prowess to Lauryn Hill's Everything is Everything on the timeless Miseducation of Lauryn Hill album. Making many moves after graduating from Penn, he would eventually join forces with Kanye West and the rest is history. Legend's first album, Get Lifted, garnered him his first 3 Grammys in 2006 vaulting him into megastar status and cementing him as an artist for the ages.
