Fresh off the heels of his In Studio Jam on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, catch John Legend on Hellobeautiful.com’s INTERLUDES LIVE! this Saturday, September 14th @ 10PM on TV One. Following the digital releases of the INTERLUDES LIVE! series with Alicia Keys and Chrisette Michelle, INTERLUDES LIVE! with John Legend marks the series broadcast premiere.
An intimate, one-of-a-kind performance and interview series hosted by Interactive One Chief Content Officer, Smokey D. Fontaine, INTERLUDES LIVE! showcases unique in-person performances by music’s biggest talents with private and unscripted conversations about an artist’s life, career, relationships and the “interludes” of their lives that mean the most.
9-time Grammy award-winning superstar JOHN LEGEND performed his classic hits including “Tonight,” Green Light” and “Ordinary People” with future hits “All of Me,” “Made To Love,” “The Beginning,” and “Who Do We Think We Are” from his recently released smash album, Love In The Future (Good Music / Sony)
“John Legend is an extraordinary talent. When you can connect an artist’s life story with the lyrics and passion behind their music you gain a truly memorable appreciation for their craft,” says Fontaine. “I was honored to be able to talk to him about some of the challenges he’s faced in his life and then became the luckiest fan to witness one of our masters in such an intimate setting.”
Legend opened up for the first time about the tumultuous relationship between his parents growing up, the incessant gay rumors, and his bride-to-be, superstar model Chrissy Tiegen. In a treat for fans, Legend also sat down at the piano and broke down the making of his iconic ballad “Ordinary People.”
INTERLUDES LIVE! with John Legend was produced by Sundance Film Festival Best Director and HelloBeautiful.com co-founder Ava DuVernay’s Forward Movement production team. The performances were recorded at Harlem’s iconic Red Rooster restaurant.
A true multi-platform experience for viewers, INTERLUDES LIVE! with John Legend will feature additional performances and interview segments on Interactive One’s HelloBeautiful.com and across the entire I One digital network. The live version of hit “All Of Me” is also being played across many Radio One adult contemporary stations.

7. They said u lost a step, wasn't explosive as once was, the best days was in the real view, questioned your drive, your leadership, your commitment, you don't have killer instinct, going back home is the worst mistake in your career, he got the coach fired, players traded, won't work between him and Kyrie, Him and Kev won't work, love your teammates to much, there's no way he can deliver a championship in his hometown, etc etc etc.... But guess what THATS NONE OF MY BUSINESS #StriveForGreatness #ThisOneIsForTheLand #PutSomeRespeckOnMyName Hahahaha!!! Yes sir
