In light of his new recently released Evolver album, John Legend (C'99, Counterparts) was interviewed by 2 different Penn alumni for 2 different mediums.
Last week, Penn alum and WPIX Entertainment Reporter Emily Frances interviewed John (see video above). Emily filled me in on some John Legend tidbits that I didn't know:
- Legend is a musical prodigy.
- He started playing the piano at the age of 4 and he started attending the University of Pennsylvania when he was only 16-years-old.
- To fit in with the college crowd, he joined an acapella group (Counterparts).
- Legend was the first in his family to attend college and after he graduated, he worked at Boston Consulting Group for 3 years in NY while he was trying to make it.
- He was an English major and lived in Butcher his freshman year.
