John Legend is crystal clear on every syllable. Some of these songs are not easy to clearly get across over the noise and he's clear as a bell. #JesusChristSuperstarLive— Tom and Lorenzo (@tomandlorenzo) April 2, 2018

My mom used to play this album all the time when I was a kid. It's become a favorite of mine.— BrooklynDad_Defiant! (@mmpadellan) April 2, 2018
I didn't think I'd enjoy #JesusChristSuperstarLive as much as I did because the music and actors were all different, but boy was I wrong.#JohnLegend killed it.
It was AMAZING. pic.twitter.com/G5Ph6Y6UNr
