In this episode of The Artist Toolbox, get a taste of the performance chops of six-time Grammy Award-winning recording artist John Legend with host John Jacobsen. More than just good looks and what Legend has called a 'presumptuous' name, Legend's innate musical ear and talent for fusing his early gospel influences with hip-hop, jazz and even classical music, has found him working with top names such as Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys, Janet Jackson, Talib Kweli, Jay-Z, Britney Spears, Eve, Common, the Black Eyed Peas and longtime producer and friend, Kanye West. So adept at weaving myriad sounds and genres, Legend seems to have created a signature sound, if not genre, of his own. Meet this charming, caring, and disarming man in his Manhattan home where he plays his baby grand in a rare, one-on-one talk with John.
