Where Did John Legend Go to College?

Where did John Legend go to college? Legend graduated from high school early, at 16 years old, and was offered a spot at Harvard University. He declined, however, to accept a scholarship from Harvard and instead chose a spot at the University of Pennsylvania. As a student, he became involved in several college a cappella groups and also served as a choir director at Bethel AME Church outside Philadelphia. Legend majored in English, with an emphasis on African-American literature.

In addition to his acting work, John Legend has become a philanthropist, working with various social causes and charitable causes. He supports the Harlem Village Academies (HVA), a non-profit organization that runs several charter schools in New York City. He serves as the vice-chairman of the organization. He also has lent his song “Shine” to the documentary Waiting For Superman, a critical look at public education.

After college, Legend began working for celebrities and philanthropists. He donated money to causes that touched his heart. He has also publicly supported multiple candidates for office. In 2005, he performed at a benefit concert in Springfield, Ohio, to raise money for a Springfield City School District tax levy. The singer has also volunteered to assist victims of natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina.

Later, Legend graduated from Pennsylvania University with an English degree and moved to New York City to work as a management consultant. He played in nightclubs and sold self-produced CDs at his shows. His success as a musician led him to meet Kanye West, the rapper of OutKast. Legend later collaborated with Kanye West on The College Dropout album. At the age of 20, John Legend was already making a name for himself.

After the Grammys, Legend was still relatively unknown, but began to gain recognition. His debut album, “Get Lifted,” peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard charts and won three Grammys. Legend also began working as a session musician, backing vocalist, and even became an employee of the Boston Consulting Group and G.O.O.D. Records. He is the youngest person to have earned all four major North American entertainment awards.

In fact, Legend’s college degree is in finance, not music. His education in music started early. His mother taught him to play the piano and he joined the church choir at the age of seven. At age nine, he won the city spelling contest, which earned him a scholarship to a local college. In high school, Legend went to Springfield’s North High School, where he graduated as salutatorian of his class.

The next step in his career was to record his debut album as a rap musician. Legend worked on West’s debut album and then formed G.O.O.D. Records with Sony Music. The first album from his label, “Get Lifted,” was released in the final week of 2004 and reached number seven in the US charts. The album received eight Grammy Award nominations and Legend won Best R&B Male Vocal Performance and Best New Artist. His second album, “Timmy”, reached number three on the Billboard 200 in the United States.
