John Legend's Teenage Job Makes Total Sense

With an astonishing 12 Grammys (via and four top 10 hits on the Billboard charts under his belt, John Legend is shaking up the music industry one song at a time. The soulful singer more than lives up to his stage name, with an impact on R&B that is highly unprecedented. Country Living reports that Legend is one of 15 artists to ever receive an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award, which speaks volumes to his talent. 

You can add "wedding singer" to his resume. In a February 2014 interview with Us Weekly, Legend revealed that he performed at weddings as a teenager. It's no surprise that before the fame and the countless accolades, the EGOT winner was blessing audiences with his voice. The Knot hailed his smash single "All of Me" as wedding-reception-worthy, and it makes sense considering it hit No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 charts. His repertoire is more than wedding appropriate.

John Legend has put his soulful voice to use at multiple weddings, including his own

It looks like John Legend regularly calls on his past career as a teen wedding singer. Not only did the singer-songwriter pen "All of Me" for wife Chrissy Teigen, per LA Confidential Magazine, but he also serenaded her at their wedding in 2013. Cue the fireworks. Legend is a wedding staple and even performed at long-time friends Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's 2014 wedding, as reported by E!

As big of an artist as he is today, Legend apparently still takes wedding requests. Per Daily Mail, Fans Sunitha and Sridhar Reddy hired the "You and I" singer to perform at their lush 2015 California wedding and he delivered. In a heartwarming twist, Legend also offered up his skills for charity. According to the Hollywood Reporter, to raise awareness and support for his education initiative Show Me Campaign, he launched a contest to sing at a fan's wedding or host a private concert for the winner. In the promotional video, he hilariously officiates and performs at his dogs Pippa and Putty's wedding in the ultimate show of puppy love.
