DEORRO has gained support from big names such as Laidback Luke, Tiesto, Kaskade, Porter Robinson, Bingo Players, Knife Party, Afrojack, Chuckie, Sidney Samson, Steve Aoki, Dillon Francis, Alvin Risk,Cazzette, Peace Treaty and many more. In 2012, DEORRO was added as a supporting act on a US Tour selling out shows in different states and rapidly gaining fans. DEORRO also went on a Australia Tour, selling out shows in Melbourne & Sydney. DEORRO was given the opportunity to close out the main stage at Good Life Festival 2012 in Melbourne Australia right after Skrillex & Steve Angello which held over 30,000 people, it was the outstanding and unforgettable performance that people still talk about till this day.

Lyrics for Wild Roses by John De Sohn:

He was born in the Bitteroot Valley in the early morning rain
Wild geese over the water, heading north and home again
Bringin? a warm wind from the south, bringin? the first taste of the spring
His mother took him to her breast and softly she did sing:

CHORUS:
Oh, Montana, give this child a home
Give him the love of a good family and a woman of his own
Give him a fire in his heart, give him a light in his eyes
Give him the wild wind for a brother and the wild Montana skies

His mother died that summer and he never learned to cry
He never knew his father and he never did ask why
He never knew the answers that would make an easy way
But he learned to know the wilderness and to be a man that way
His mother?s brother took him in to his family and his home
Gave him a hand that he could lean on and a strength to call his own
And he learned to be a farmer and he learned to love the land
And he learned to read the seasons and he learned to make a stand

CHORUS

On the eve of his 21st birthday, he set out on his own
He was 30 years and runnin? when he found his way back home
Ridin? a storm across the mountains and an achin? in his heart
Said he came to turn the pages and to make a brand new start
Now he never told the story of the time that he was gone
Some say he was a lawyer, some say he was a john
There was something in the city that he said he couldn't breathe
There was something in the country that he said he couldn't leave

CHORUS

Now some say he was crazy and some are glad he's gone
But some of us will miss him and we'll try to carry on
Giving a voice to the forest, giving a voice to the dawn
Giving a voice to the wilderness and the land that he lived on

CHORUS x2

About Becky G

Rebbeca Marie Gomez, “Becky G”, (born March 2nd 1997) is a Mexican-American rapper and singer/songwriter. Her musical career began in 2009 when she joined a girl group called “G.L.A.M.”, then later joined another girl group called “BCG” however she’d previously made small modeling and acting appearances. Becky’s career was kickstarted in 2011 when she posted a remake of Kanye West and Jay-Z’s “Otis” to YouTube. The video never went viral, however it was discovered by major music producer Dr. Luke a week after it was published, and she was soon signed to Kemosabe Records. Since then, Becky has released many covers and remakes on her YouTube channel “BeckyGOfficial”, and she’s dueted with major pop artists such as Cody Simpson, Will.I.Am, Cher Lloyd, Austin Mahone, Pitbull and many others. In April 2013 she released the video for her remake of Jennifer Lopez’s “Jenny From The Block” entitled “Becky From The Block”, which JLo cameoed in. In July 2013 she released her debut EP “Play It Again” which features 5 tracks including the singles “Play It Again”, and “Can’t Get Enough” which features Pitbull. Becky’s songs, “Problem (The Monster Remix)” featuring Will.I.Am and “Magik 2.0″ featuring Austin Mahone were featured in the family films “Hotel Transylvania” and “The Smurfs 2″. In April 2014 Becky won her first award at the Radio Disney Music Awards for “Best New Artist”, and in the same week she released her hit single “Shower”. There is no set release date for Becky’s debut album, however it’s been said that it will be “coming soon”. last.fm

Con una l?grima de f? sobre tu piel
olvid? la grieta que dej? tu amor
pero ese instinto taurino de tu ser

Sin dolor no te haces feliz
sin dolor no te haces feliz
sin amor...
no sufres m?s

Toda esa noche provocaste ver en mi
lo que a nadie a muestro en la intimidad
pero ese tipo de mirada que hay en t?

About Bela Lakatos [+] The Gypsy Youth Project

Introducing Bela Lakatos & The Gypsy Youth Project tells the story of Hungarian Gypsy youth, with poignant tales of lost love, hardship and reflections on the life of an outcast people. Known as 'Ternipe' (meaning 'youth') at home, the group - which is predominantly vocal, with percussion from sticks, foot-stomping and a metal can, and an acoustic guitar and mandolin - was formed with the aim of ensuring the survival of Gypsy folk music and to launch the next generation of Hungarian Gypsy music. In Hungary, traditional Gypsy music comes in two forms. The first is 'restaurant music', played by gypsy orchestras for tourists and the city populations. The second strand is rural folk music, played almost exclusively for the gypsy community. This international debut album from Bela Lakatos & The Gypsy Youth Project demonstrates that they fall firmly into the second camp. Theirs is the largely vocal style, accompanied mainly by whistling, spoons, sticks and a grittiness that reflects their rural Roma experience. The project was formed by Bela Lakatos and Gusztav Varga (founder of legendary Hungarian Gypsy band, Kalyi Jag) as a way of protecting the traditional music of the Szabolcs-Szatmar-Bereg region and also to launch the next generation of Hungarian Gypsy folk musicians. The group began their work by collecting rural songs to include in their repertoire and this CD includes the highlights of these expeditions into Hungary's countryside - lively and infectious songs which reflect the hardship and occasional joys of life in an outcast community; cabbage boiling on the stove, rough justice, domestic bloodbaths and the skies raining poverty on the downside; drunkenness, love, dancing family and lucky footwear balancing things out. 'O Bijav' (The Wedding) is a suitably beguiling, infectious and upbeat opening, where the wedding represents a celebration of the Gypsy mindset. 'Lina' describes some gruesome events with a knowing smile and a winning chorus, while more proud family sentiment takes a more conventional turn on the wonderful 'Muro Shavo Kiki' (My Dear Son Kiki). Loneliness comes to the fore on the plaintive 'Korkorro Som' (I'm Lonely) before being blown away by a stolen windfall on 'Patave Baxtale' (Fortunate Sandal). The album comes to a fine, life-affirming conclusion with party tune, 'Na Sutyom' (I Haven't slept) and the whistle call to all nomads and outcasts, 'Po Drom' (On the Road). These themes are played out in the three predominant song styles of Hungarian Gypsy music; the Lo Ko Gilji (slow ballad); the Ro Vjaki Gilji (a song for the 'stick dance' that is typically played in a 4/4 rhythm); and the Khelimaski Gilji (another dance style, for solo or group dancing which is played in a 2/3 rhythm). last.fm

About Calvin Harris

Adam Richard Wiles (born 17 January 1984), better known by his stage name Calvin Harris, is a Scottish DJ, singer-songwriter, and producer. He owns the vanity label Fly Eye Records. His gold-selling debut album, I Created Disco, was released in 2007 and contained the top-ten singles "Acceptable in the 80s" and "The Girls". His second studio album, Ready for the Weekend (2009), reached number one on the UK Album Chart and includes "I'm Not Alone", which debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart, the top-five hit "Ready for the Weekend", and the singles "Flashback" and "You Used to Hold Me".
A remix album titled L.E.D. Festival was released in July 2010 as a free album in the August issue of Mixmag. Harris released his third studio album, 18 Months in October 2012, which contained the singles "Bounce", "Feel So Close", "Let's Go", "We'll Be Coming Back", "Sweet Nothing", "Drinking from the Bottle", "I Need Your Love", and "Thinking About You". All of these singles reached the UK Top 10. He has written and produced tracks for other recording artists including Kylie Minogue, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Dizzee Rascal, Cheryl Cole, Example, and Rihanna on "We Found Love", an international success and one of the best-selling singles of all time.
Harris holds the record for the most top ten hits from one studio album on the UK Singles Chart with nine hits, surpassing Michael Jackson. According to Forbes, Harris was the highest paid DJ of 2013, grossing an estimated $46 million.

Biography:

Early life and career:
Harris was born Adam Richard Wiles on 17 January 1984 in Dumfries, Scotland. He states that he was a fan of football and aspired to be like Steve McManaman. "But I never had curly hair, so I got into music. If I'd had curly hair, things would've been different." Born and raised a Doonhamer, when interviewed on Soccer Saturday he said his team was home town club, Queen of the South. He was first attracted to electronic music in his teens and was recording bedroom demos by 1999. His earliest success was when he was twenty-one: the songs "Da Bongos" and "Brighter Days" were released as a 12" club single and CD-EP by the Prima Facie label in early 2002 under the name Stouffer. He released one song in 2004, "Let Me Know", with artist Ayah Marar. The song appears on The Unabombers' Electric Soul 2.

2006-08: I Created Disco:

Harris signed contracts with Three Six Zero Group (management), EMI (publishing) and Sony BMG (recording) in 2006 after he had been discovered by Tommie Sunshine on the social networking website Myspace and his music was released on Sunshine's label Xylophone Jones Recordings previous to his album on Sony BMG. Harris had recently moved back from London to his hometown of Dumfries because he was unable to find a job. Later in 2006, Harris produced a remix of All Saints' hit single "Rock Steady".
Harris's first album, I Created Disco, was released in June 2007. The album contains uptempo electroclash songs that were influenced by music from the 1980s. To promote I Created Disco, Harris embarked on a tour of the UK, supporting Faithless and Groove Armada.I Created Disco was certified gold by the British Phonographic Industry for sales of 100,000 copies in the UK, where it reached number eight on the UK Albums Chart.
The first single, "Vegas", was issued on limited edition vinyl; the first wide-release single from the album was "Acceptable in the 80s", a tribute to the style and culture of the decade. The song reached number ten on the UK Singles Chart, remaining on the chart for fifteen weeks. "The Girls", the album's third single, peaked at number three in the UK, although the fourth release, "Merrymaking at My Place", reached only number forty-three. The fifth and final single, "Colours", was featured in television advertisements for DFS sofas and Kia Motors. On 18 October 2008, Harris was featured on BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix with a two-hour set.

2008-10: Ready for the Weekend and Chris Brown controversy:

In April 2008, Harris stated that the only existing copy of his then-upcoming album, which he had been working on for seven months, was lost when the bag containing his laptop was misplaced during the baggage handling problems at the opening of London Heathrow Terminal 5. In an interview with Popjustice in April 2009, Harris admitted that while he did lose his bags at Heathrow, he lied about the laptop being in his luggage in order to buy himself some more time to finish recording the album, adding that the idea was concocted by him and his sound engineer. The album, Ready for the Weekend, was released in August 2009 and debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart, eventually being certified gold by the BPI for shipments of 100,000 copies. "I'm Not Alone", released as the album's lead single in April 2009, debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart and was shortlisted for the Popjustice £20 Music Prize. The follow-up single, "Ready for the Weekend", reached number three. Other tracks included on the album are "Worst Day" featuring Izza Kizza and "Yeah Yeah Yeah La La La", which was used in a Coca-Cola advertisement in the summer of 2009.
Harris toured around the UK, Ireland, France, the Netherlands and the United States promoting the album. In June 2009, Harris appeared at the Summertime Ball at the Emirates Stadium, and in August, he made an appearance on the first Soccer AM show of the season. Harris performed at Wembley Stadium in October 2009 as part of the pre-game entertainment for the NFL International Series game between the New England Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The third single from Ready for the Weekend, "Flashback", reached number eighteen in the UK, and the fourth, "You Used to Hold Me", charted at number twenty-seven. During promotion of the album, Harris hosted a series of videos on YouTube titled JAM TV, in which musicians such as Florence Welch, Goldie and Katy Perry tried to open pots of jam. In 2010, Harris received a BRIT Award nomination for British Male.
On 14 November, Harris invaded the stage of The X Factor during a performance by Irish duo Jedward, holding a pineapple on his head and bending over to point at his buttocks. He was subsequently escorted from the studio by the security team and ejected from the ITV2 programme The Xtra Factor, where he was due to appear as a guest the same night. He later apologised on Twitter: "At the end of the day, I had a pineapple on my head. Sorry if I caused anyone embarrassment. Ps. I love Jedward." The same week, Harris spoke to The Chris Moyles Show and revealed that he had been "inspired to make a mockery of the show", as well as stating, "If you look at music it's a frightening stranglehold that Simon Cowell has got over the entire music chart in the UK at the moment." On the same day, Jedward's mentor Louis Walsh, appearing on The Paul O'Grady Show, accused Harris of trying to "cash in" on the duo's fame, and claimed to not know who he was.
Harris claimed that "Yeah 3x" plagiarised his 2009 single "I'm Not Alone". Harris tweeted, "Choked on my cornflakes when I heard the new Chris Brown single this morning. Do you know what I mean?" After receiving many abusive messages from Brown's fans after posting the comment, Brown took exception to this while Harris tweeted he had never heard of him. Having considered similarities between the two songs, Harris' name was subsequently added to the songwriting credits on the single and the F.A.M.E. album.

2010-13: 18 Months:

Harris played at the 2010 Big Day Out, a music festival which takes place in several major cities in Australia and Auckland, New Zealand. In May 2010, he performed at Evolution Festival in Newcastle upon Tyne, and in July he played at Splendour in Nottingham and headlined at the Stockton International Riverside Festival in Stockton-on-Tees. In July 2010, Harris released a mix, titled L.E.D. Festival (short for L.E.D. Festival Presents... Calvin Harris), which was available for one month as a free covermount CD in Mixmag.
Harris appeared at the tenth birthday of Our:House in Auckland, New Zealand, in November 2010, alongside Afrojack, and performed an hour-long DJ set at Australia's Steresonic Festival alongside Tiësto, Carl Cox, Afrojack and Major Lazer in November and December 2010, in several major Australian cities including Sydney and Melbourne. In 2011, he toured with Rihanna as a support act on the European leg of her Loud Tour; Rihanna was quoted to say that "Calvin is the perfect fit for the Loud tour. He is going to bring something unique and fun for the fans." Harris played the 2011 Mardi Gras Party in Sydney on 5 March.
During March and April 2011, Harris was scheduled to be an opening act/DJ for Katy Perry during her California Dreams Tour, but he withdrew from the tour shortly before his first date, citing production issues and difficulties with Perry's management in his apology to her fans. Perry publicly criticised Harris via her Twitter feed, stating that the tour's other support acts had expressed no problems with their production arrangements, but Harris later said "it's all fine" between them and that he would still like to work with her in the future.
Harris headlined Limelite at Metropolis Fremantle in Western Australia in March 2011 in celebration of the event's fourth birthday, where he played small samples of his new track, "Awooga", which was subsequently uploaded onto YouTube via his channel. Following "Awooga", Harris released the single "Bounce", a collaboration with Kelis that debuted at number two on the UK Singles Chart in June 2011. Another single, "Feel So Close", was released in August 2011 and also reached number two in the United Kingdom. "Feel So Close" became Harris's first solo entry on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, peaking at number twelve.
Harris performed at the 2011 Jingle Bell Ball concert, and was announced as one of the headline acts at a number of Southern Hemisphere 2011/2012 new year music festivals, including Shore Thing and Field Day in Sydney, as well as Rhythm and Vines in New Zealand.
"Let's Go" featuring Ne-Yo, released in April 2012, also reached number two in the UK, while reaching number six in Ireland. It was his second Hot 100 appearance as a main artist, charting at number seventeen. The song was commissioned for a Pepsi Max advertising campaign. "We'll Be Coming Back", featuring rapper Example, was released as the fourth single in July 2012. It peaked at number two in the UK, and reached number one in Ireland. The fifth single, "Sweet Nothing", features Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine, and was released on 14 October 2012. It peaked at number one on the UK Singles Chart, marking Harris' first number-one single as main artist in the United Kingdom since his 2009 single, "I'm Not Alone" as a main artist. The song peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. These singles became part of his newest album, which was released on 29 October 2012 in the UK. He has said of the album, "I'm going for pretty epic-sounding dance records. I guess the whole sound has just moved on in terms of production as I've got a new studio and some new gear to make the sounds I wasn't able to make before." On 22 August 2012, Harris announced via Twitter that his third studio album will be titled 18 Months and will feature Kelis, Rihanna, Example, Nicky Romero, Ellie Goulding, Tinie Tempah, Florence Welch, Dizzee Rascal, Ne-Yo, Ayah Marar and Dillon Francis.
Harris was the house DJ at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards held at the Staples Center, Los Angeles, where he won Best Electronic Video for "Feel So Close" and Video of the Year alongside Rihanna for "We Found Love". In February 2013, Harris signed as the first exclusive resident DJ at the MGM Grand's Hakkasan nightclub in Las Vegas, where he currently performs on a regular basis. Harris performed as part of the post-race concert of the 2013 Formula One Bahrain Grand Prix in April 2013.

2014: Upcoming fourth studio album:
On 14 March 2014, Harris's song "Summer" premiered on the UK's Capital FM. The track was released on 14 March 2014 as the first single from his forthcoming fourth studio album. It debuted at number one in the UK and Ireland.
On 26 June 2014, Harris uploaded a dancefloor-focused track called "C.U.B.A." to SoundCloud.

Productions and songwriting:
In 2007, Harris caught the attention of Australian pop singer Kylie Minogue after his recordings had been passed on to her by another record producer. This led to him co-writing and producing two songs on her 2007 album X--"Heart Beat Rock" and "In My Arms", the latter a top ten hit in the UK. Harris said that working with Minogue was "surreal, but fun" although he admitted to Mixmag in 2007 to "needing a few drinks before meeting her". Harris returned to work with Minogue on her album Aphrodite (2010), co-producing the track "Too Much".
In 2008, Harris collaborated with rapper Dizzee Rascal on his single "Dance wiv Me", producing the track and singing the hook. The single reached number one in the UK and has been certified platinum by the BPI, selling 600,000 copies. It was shortlisted for the 2008 Popjustice £20 Music Prize and, in 2009, received a BRIT Award nomination for British Single and an Ivor Novello Award nomination for Best Contemporary Song. In 2009, he produced Dizzee Rascal's next single titled "Holiday", which also reached number one. He was supposed to make an appearance in its music video, but objected to dancing along in some scenes, wearing a certain shirt for the video and not wearing his "fly eye" glasses. Also in 2009, Harris made a guest appearance on Tiësto's song "Century" on the Dutch producer's album Kaleidoscope. Harris produced a track for English singer/rapper Example for his second album Won't Go Quietly (2010), "Time Machine", and mixed The Ting Tings' UK top forty single "Hands", having previously remixed the duo's singles "Great DJ" (2008) and "We Walk" (2009).
In 2011, Harris featured on LMFAO's album Sorry for Party Rocking, appearing on the track "Reminds Me of You" which is based on Harris's own song "Awooga". Harris produced Tinchy Stryder's second single, "Off the Record" from his fourth studio album, Full Tank. The track had its première on 15 September 2011, and was released in the UK on 6 November 2011.
Following a stint as her support act on the Australian leg of her tour, Harris produced "We Found Love" and "Where Have You Been" for Barbadian singer Rihanna. The former is the lead single from her sixth studio album, Talk That Talk, and was premiered in September 2011. It has reached number one in countries such as the UK and the United States, becoming Harris's first charting appearance on the Billboard Hot 100. In an interview for Q magazine, Harris said of the lyric "We found love in a hopeless place": "It could have been Jumpin Jaks in Dumfries (Harris' home town), I don't know exactly what I was thinking about." He co-wrote and co-produced the bonus track "One Life" for R&B singer Mary J. Blige's album My Life II... The Journey Continues (Act 1) (2011).
Harris worked with American pop band Scissor Sisters on the single "Only the Horses" from their fourth studio album, Magic Hour. He wrote and produced Cheryl Cole's single "Call My Name", the lead single from her third album A Million Lights. He won an Ivor Novello Award for "Songwriter of the Year" in 2013.

Other work:
In 2007, Harris contributed the song "Off & On" to Róisín Murphy's album Overpowered, but it was cut from the album; Harris later gave the song to Sophie Ellis-Bextor to record for her 2011 album Make a Scene. Harris also produced a remix of Dragonette's debut single "I Get Around" that was rejected by the band. In 2007, Kelis discussed plans to work with Harris on her then-upcoming album, although this did not materialise. Harris did, however, produce a remix of Flesh Tone's second single, "4th of July (Fireworks)", and later collaborated with her on his 2011 single "Bounce".
American singer Katy Perry expressed an interest in working with Harris in 2009, and at one point they had pencilled recording sessions for her second album, Teenage Dream (2010), but no material was released. Harris worked with boy band JLS on songs for their second album, Outta This World (2010), but none of his work made the cut for the album. Harris also unsuccessfully tried to follow up his successful collaboration with Rihanna by submitting a track for her seventh studio album, Unapologetic (2012). He had completed a portion of the song, but missed the deadline. Harris admitted, "You can't work under that kind of pressure. I can't anyway." In April 2012, it was reported that Harris had contributed several tracks to Kesha's then-upcoming second studio album, Warrior. However, none of these tracks made the final cut.

Biography:

Early life and career:
Harris was born Adam Richard Wiles on 17 January 1984 in Dumfries, Scotland. He states that he was a fan of football and aspired to be like Steve McManaman. “But I never had curly hair, so I got into music. If I’d had curly hair, things would’ve been different.” Born and raised a Doonhamer, when interviewed on Soccer Saturday he said his team was home town club, Queen of the South. He was first attracted to electronic music in his teens and was recording bedroom demos by 1999. His earliest success was when he was twenty-one: the songs “Da Bongos” and “Brighter Days” were released as a 12″ club single and CD-EP by the Prima Facie label in early 2002 under the name Stouffer. He released one song in 2004, “Let Me Know”, with artist Ayah Marar. The song appears on The Unabombers’ Electric Soul 2.

2006-08: I Created Disco:

Harris signed contracts with Three Six Zero Group (management), EMI (publishing) and Sony BMG (recording) in 2006 after he had been discovered by Tommie Sunshine on the social networking website Myspace and his music was released on Sunshine’s label Xylophone Jones Recordings previous to his album on Sony BMG. Harris had recently moved back from London to his hometown of Dumfries because he was unable to find a job. Later in 2006, Harris produced a remix of All Saints’ hit single “Rock Steady”.
Harris’s first album, I Created Disco, was released in June 2007. The album contains uptempo electroclash songs that were influenced by music from the 1980s. To promote I Created Disco, Harris embarked on a tour of the UK, supporting Faithless and Groove Armada.I Created Disco was certified gold by the British Phonographic Industry for sales of 100,000 copies in the UK, where it reached number eight on the UK Albums Chart.
The first single, “Vegas”, was issued on limited edition vinyl; the first wide-release single from the album was “Acceptable in the 80s”, a tribute to the style and culture of the decade. The song reached number ten on the UK Singles Chart, remaining on the chart for fifteen weeks. “The Girls”, the album’s third single, peaked at number three in the UK, although the fourth release, “Merrymaking at My Place”, reached only number forty-three. The fifth and final single, “Colours”, was featured in television advertisements for DFS sofas and Kia Motors. On 18 October 2008, Harris was featured on BBC Radio 1′s Essential Mix with a two-hour set.

2008-10: Ready for the Weekend and Chris Brown controversy:

In April 2008, Harris stated that the only existing copy of his then-upcoming album, which he had been working on for seven months, was lost when the bag containing his laptop was misplaced during the baggage handling problems at the opening of London Heathrow Terminal 5. In an interview with Popjustice in April 2009, Harris admitted that while he did lose his bags at Heathrow, he lied about the laptop being in his luggage in order to buy himself some more time to finish recording the album, adding that the idea was concocted by him and his sound engineer. The album, Ready for the Weekend, was released in August 2009 and debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart, eventually being certified gold by the BPI for shipments of 100,000 copies. “I’m Not Alone”, released as the album’s lead single in April 2009, debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart and was shortlisted for the Popjustice £20 Music Prize. The follow-up single, “Ready for the Weekend”, reached number three. Other tracks included on the album are “Worst Day” featuring Izza Kizza and “Yeah Yeah Yeah La La La”, which was used in a Coca-Cola advertisement in the summer of 2009.
Harris toured around the UK, Ireland, France, the Netherlands and the United States promoting the album. In June 2009, Harris appeared at the Summertime Ball at the Emirates Stadium, and in August, he made an appearance on the first Soccer AM show of the season. Harris performed at Wembley Stadium in October 2009 as part of the pre-game entertainment for the NFL International Series game between the New England Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The third single from Ready for the Weekend, “Flashback”, reached number eighteen in the UK, and the fourth, “You Used to Hold Me”, charted at number twenty-seven. During promotion of the album, Harris hosted a series of videos on YouTube titled JAM TV, in which musicians such as Florence Welch, Goldie and Katy Perry tried to open pots of jam. In 2010, Harris received a BRIT Award nomination for British Male.
On 14 November, Harris invaded the stage of The X Factor during a performance by Irish duo Jedward, holding a pineapple on his head and bending over to point at his buttocks. He was subsequently escorted from the studio by the security team and ejected from the ITV2 programme The Xtra Factor, where he was due to appear as a guest the same night. He later apologised on Twitter: “At the end of the day, I had a pineapple on my head. Sorry if I caused anyone embarrassment. Ps. I love Jedward.” The same week, Harris spoke to The Chris Moyles Show and revealed that he had been “inspired to make a mockery of the show”, as well as stating, “If you look at music it’s a frightening stranglehold that Simon Cowell has got over the entire music chart in the UK at the moment.” On the same day, Jedward’s mentor Louis Walsh, appearing on The Paul O’Grady Show, accused Harris of trying to “cash in” on the duo’s fame, and claimed to not know who he was.
Harris claimed that “Yeah 3x” plagiarised his 2009 single “I’m Not Alone”. Harris tweeted, “Choked on my cornflakes when I heard the new Chris Brown single this morning. Do you know what I mean?” After receiving many abusive messages from Brown’s fans after posting the comment, Brown took exception to this while Harris tweeted he had never heard of him. Having considered similarities between the two songs, Harris’ name was subsequently added to the songwriting credits on the single and the F.A.M.E. album.

2010-13: 18 Months:

Harris played at the 2010 Big Day Out, a music festival which takes place in several major cities in Australia and Auckland, New Zealand. In May 2010, he performed at Evolution Festival in Newcastle upon Tyne, and in July he played at Splendour in Nottingham and headlined at the Stockton International Riverside Festival in Stockton-on-Tees. In July 2010, Harris released a mix, titled L.E.D. Festival (short for L.E.D. Festival Presents… Calvin Harris), which was available for one month as a free covermount CD in Mixmag.
Harris appeared at the tenth birthday of Our:House in Auckland, New Zealand, in November 2010, alongside Afrojack, and performed an hour-long DJ set at Australia’s Steresonic Festival alongside Tiësto, Carl Cox, Afrojack and Major Lazer in November and December 2010, in several major Australian cities including Sydney and Melbourne. In 2011, he toured with Rihanna as a support act on the European leg of her Loud Tour; Rihanna was quoted to say that “Calvin is the perfect fit for the Loud tour. He is going to bring something unique and fun for the fans.” Harris played the 2011 Mardi Gras Party in Sydney on 5 March.
During March and April 2011, Harris was scheduled to be an opening act/DJ for Katy Perry during her California Dreams Tour, but he withdrew from the tour shortly before his first date, citing production issues and difficulties with Perry’s management in his apology to her fans. Perry publicly criticised Harris via her Twitter feed, stating that the tour’s other support acts had expressed no problems with their production arrangements, but Harris later said “it’s all fine” between them and that he would still like to work with her in the future.
Harris headlined Limelite at Metropolis Fremantle in Western Australia in March 2011 in celebration of the event’s fourth birthday, where he played small samples of his new track, “Awooga”, which was subsequently uploaded onto YouTube via his channel. Following “Awooga”, Harris released the single “Bounce”, a collaboration with Kelis that debuted at number two on the UK Singles Chart in June 2011. Another single, “Feel So Close”, was released in August 2011 and also reached number two in the United Kingdom. “Feel So Close” became Harris’s first solo entry on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, peaking at number twelve.
Harris performed at the 2011 Jingle Bell Ball concert, and was announced as one of the headline acts at a number of Southern Hemisphere 2011/2012 new year music festivals, including Shore Thing and Field Day in Sydney, as well as Rhythm and Vines in New Zealand.
“Let’s Go” featuring Ne-Yo, released in April 2012, also reached number two in the UK, while reaching number six in Ireland. It was his second Hot 100 appearance as a main artist, charting at number seventeen. The song was commissioned for a Pepsi Max advertising campaign. “We’ll Be Coming Back”, featuring rapper Example, was released as the fourth single in July 2012. It peaked at number two in the UK, and reached number one in Ireland. The fifth single, “Sweet Nothing”, features Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine, and was released on 14 October 2012. It peaked at number one on the UK Singles Chart, marking Harris’ first number-one single as main artist in the United Kingdom since his 2009 single, “I’m Not Alone” as a main artist. The song peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. These singles became part of his newest album, which was released on 29 October 2012 in the UK. He has said of the album, “I’m going for pretty epic-sounding dance records. I guess the whole sound has just moved on in terms of production as I’ve got a new studio and some new gear to make the sounds I wasn’t able to make before.” On 22 August 2012, Harris announced via Twitter that his third studio album will be titled 18 Months and will feature Kelis, Rihanna, Example, Nicky Romero, Ellie Goulding, Tinie Tempah, Florence Welch, Dizzee Rascal, Ne-Yo, Ayah Marar and Dillon Francis.
Harris was the house DJ at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards held at the Staples Center, Los Angeles, where he won Best Electronic Video for “Feel So Close” and Video of the Year alongside Rihanna for “We Found Love”. In February 2013, Harris signed as the first exclusive resident DJ at the MGM Grand’s Hakkasan nightclub in Las Vegas, where he currently performs on a regular basis. Harris performed as part of the post-race concert of the 2013 Formula One Bahrain Grand Prix in April 2013.

2014: Upcoming fourth studio album:
On 14 March 2014, Harris’s song “Summer” premiered on the UK’s Capital FM. The track was released on 14 March 2014 as the first single from his forthcoming fourth studio album. It debuted at number one in the UK and Ireland.
On 26 June 2014, Harris uploaded a dancefloor-focused track called “C.U.B.A.” to SoundCloud.

Productions and songwriting:
In 2007, Harris caught the attention of Australian pop singer Kylie Minogue after his recordings had been passed on to her by another record producer. This led to him co-writing and producing two songs on her 2007 album X–”Heart Beat Rock” and “In My Arms”, the latter a top ten hit in the UK. Harris said that working with Minogue was “surreal, but fun” although he admitted to Mixmag in 2007 to “needing a few drinks before meeting her”. Harris returned to work with Minogue on her album Aphrodite (2010), co-producing the track “Too Much”.
In 2008, Harris collaborated with rapper Dizzee Rascal on his single “Dance wiv Me”, producing the track and singing the hook. The single reached number one in the UK and has been certified platinum by the BPI, selling 600,000 copies. It was shortlisted for the 2008 Popjustice £20 Music Prize and, in 2009, received a BRIT Award nomination for British Single and an Ivor Novello Award nomination for Best Contemporary Song. In 2009, he produced Dizzee Rascal’s next single titled “Holiday”, which also reached number one. He was supposed to make an appearance in its music video, but objected to dancing along in some scenes, wearing a certain shirt for the video and not wearing his “fly eye” glasses. Also in 2009, Harris made a guest appearance on Tiësto’s song “Century” on the Dutch producer’s album Kaleidoscope. Harris produced a track for English singer/rapper Example for his second album Won’t Go Quietly (2010), “Time Machine”, and mixed The Ting Tings’ UK top forty single “Hands”, having previously remixed the duo’s singles “Great DJ” (2008) and “We Walk” (2009).
In 2011, Harris featured on LMFAO’s album Sorry for Party Rocking, appearing on the track “Reminds Me of You” which is based on Harris’s own song “Awooga”. Harris produced Tinchy Stryder’s second single, “Off the Record” from his fourth studio album, Full Tank. The track had its première on 15 September 2011, and was released in the UK on 6 November 2011.
Following a stint as her support act on the Australian leg of her tour, Harris produced “We Found Love” and “Where Have You Been” for Barbadian singer Rihanna. The former is the lead single from her sixth studio album, Talk That Talk, and was premiered in September 2011. It has reached number one in countries such as the UK and the United States, becoming Harris’s first charting appearance on the Billboard Hot 100. In an interview for Q magazine, Harris said of the lyric “We found love in a hopeless place”: “It could have been Jumpin Jaks in Dumfries (Harris’ home town), I don’t know exactly what I was thinking about.” He co-wrote and co-produced the bonus track “One Life” for R&B singer Mary J. Blige’s album My Life II… The Journey Continues (Act 1) (2011).
Harris worked with American pop band Scissor Sisters on the single “Only the Horses” from their fourth studio album, Magic Hour. He wrote and produced Cheryl Cole’s single “Call My Name”, the lead single from her third album A Million Lights. He won an Ivor Novello Award for “Songwriter of the Year” in 2013.

Other work:
In 2007, Harris contributed the song “Off & On” to Róisín Murphy’s album Overpowered, but it was cut from the album; Harris later gave the song to Sophie Ellis-Bextor to record for her 2011 album Make a Scene. Harris also produced a remix of Dragonette’s debut single “I Get Around” that was rejected by the band. In 2007, Kelis discussed plans to work with Harris on her then-upcoming album, although this did not materialise. Harris did, however, produce a remix of Flesh Tone’s second single, “4th of July (Fireworks)”, and later collaborated with her on his 2011 single “Bounce”.
American singer Katy Perry expressed an interest in working with Harris in 2009, and at one point they had pencilled recording sessions for her second album, Teenage Dream (2010), but no material was released. Harris worked with boy band JLS on songs for their second album, Outta This World (2010), but none of his work made the cut for the album. Harris also unsuccessfully tried to follow up his successful collaboration with Rihanna by submitting a track for her seventh studio album, Unapologetic (2012). He had completed a portion of the song, but missed the deadline. Harris admitted, “You can’t work under that kind of pressure. I can’t anyway.” In April 2012, it was reported that Harris had contributed several tracks to Kesha’s then-upcoming second studio album, Warrior. However, none of these tracks made the final cut.

About John Legend

John Roger Stephens (born December 28, 1978), better known by his stage name John Legend, is an American singer-songwriter and actor. He has won nine Grammy Awards. In 2007, Legend received the special Starlight Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Prior to the release of Legend's debut album, his career gained momentum through a series of successful collaborations with multiple established artists. Legend added his voice to those of other artists, assisting in them reaching chart-topper hits. He lent his voice to Magnetic Man's "Getting Nowhere," Kanye West's "All of the Lights", on Slum Village's "Selfish" and Dilated Peoples' "This Way". Other artists included Jay-Z's "Encore", and he sang backing vocals on Alicia Keys' 2003 song "You Don't Know My Name", the Kanye West remix of Britney Spears' "Me Against the Music", and Fort Minor's "High Road". Legend played piano on Lauryn Hill's "Everything Is Everything". He has also gained chart topping hits from his solo work as well, including the Billboard Hot 100 number-one single, "All of Me".

Early life:
Legend was born John Roger Stephens on December 28, 1978, in Springfield, Ohio. He is one of four children of Phyllis (née Lloyd), a seamstress, and Ronald Stephens, a factory worker and former National Guardsman. Throughout his childhood, Legend was homeschooled on and off by his mother. At age four, he performed with his church choir. He began playing the piano and at age seven. In 1987, when he was nine, his parents divorced. At the age of twelve, Legend attended North High School, from which he graduated four years later. Upon his salutatorian graduation, Legend was offered admission to Harvard University and scholarships to Georgetown University and Morehouse College. He attended the University of Pennsylvania, where he studied English with an emphasis on African American literature.
While in college, Legend served as president and musical director of a co-ed jazz and pop a cappella group called Counterparts. His lead vocals on the group's recording of Joan Osborne's "One of Us" received critical acclaim landing the song on the track list of the 1998 Best of Collegiate a Cappella compilation CD. Legend was also a member of the prestigious senior societies Sphinx Senior Society and Onyx Senior Honor Society while an undergraduate at Penn. While in college, Legend was introduced to Lauryn Hill by a friend. Hill hired him to play piano on "Everything Is Everything", a song from her album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
During this period, he began to hold a number of shows around Philadelphia, eventually expanding his audience base to New York, Boston, Atlanta, and Washington, D.C. He finished college in 1999, and thereafter began producing, writing, and recording his own music. He released two albums independently; his self-titled demo (2000) and Live at Jimmy's Uptown (2001), which he sold at his shows. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, Legend began working as a management consultant for the Boston Consulting Group. During this time, he began working on his demo and began sending his work to various record labels. In 2001, Devo Springsteen introduced Legend to then up-and-coming hip-hop artist Kanye West; Legend was hired to sing during the hooks of West's music. After signing to West's label, he chose his stage name from an idea that was given to him by poet J. Ivy, due to what he perceived "old-school sound". J. Ivy stated, "I heard your music and it reminds me of that music from the old school. You sound like one of the legends. As a matter of fact, that's what I'm going to call you from now on! I'm going to call you John Legend." After J. Ivy continued to call him by the new moniker "John Legend," others quickly caught on, including Kanye West, and the name stuck. Despite Legend's reluctance to change his stage name, he eventually announced his new artist name as John Legend.

Career:

2004-2007: Get Lifted and Once Again:
Legend released his debut album, Get Lifted, on GOOD Music in December 2004. It featured production by Kanye West, Dave Tozer, and will.i.am, and debuted at number 13 on the US Billboard 200, selling 116,000 copies in its first week. It went on to sell 540,300 copies in the United States and was certified gold by the RIAA. An international success, Get Lifted also reached number one of the Norwegian Albums Chart and peaked within the top ten in the Netherlands and Sweden, resulting into worldwide sales of 850,000 copies. Critically acclaimed, it won the 2006 Grammy Award for Best R&B Album, and earned Legend another two nominal awards for Best New Artist and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. Altogether, the album produced four singles, including debut single "Used to Love U," which entered the top 30 of the New Zealand and UK Singles Chart, and Grammy Award-winning "Ordinary People" which peaked at 24 on the Billboard Hot 100. John Legend also co-wrote Janet Jackson's "I Want You", which was certified Platinum and received a nomination for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance at the 47th Annual Grammy Awards.
A highly sought after collaborator, Legend was featured on several records the following years; he appeared on albums by Fort Minor, Sérgio Mendes, Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, The Black Eyed Peas, Stephen Colbert, Rich Boy, MSTRKRFT, Chemistry, and Fergie, among others. Legend also tentatively worked with the late Michael Jackson on a future album for which he had written one song. In August 2006, Legend appeared in an episode of Sesame Street. He performed a song entitled "It Feels Good When You Sing a Song", a duet with Hoots the Owl. He also performed during the pregame show of Super Bowl XL in Detroit and the halftime show at the 2006 NBA All-Star Game.
In October 2006, Legend's second album, Once Again, was released. Legend co-wrote and co-produced the bulk of the album, which saw him reteaming with West and will.i.am but also spawned production from Raphael Saadiq, Craig Street, Sa-Ra, Eric Hudson, Devo Springsteen, Dave Tozer and Avenue. Released to major commercial success, it reached number three on the Billboard 200 and debuted on top of the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. It was eventually certified platinum by the RIAA, and reached gold status in Italy, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. At the 2007 Grammy Awards ceremony, the song "Heaven" was awarded the Grammy Award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance, while lead single "Save Room" received a nod in the Best Male Pop Vocal category. Legend won a second Grammy that year for "Family Affair," a collaboration with Sly & The Family Stone, Joss Stone and Van Hunt, for the former's Different Strokes by Different Folks album.

2008-2010: Evolver and Wake Up!:
In January 2008, Legend sang in a video for Barack Obama, produced by will.i.am called "Yes We Can". The same year, Legend had a supporting, singing-only role in the 2008 movie Soul Men, where he plays the deceased lead singer of a fictitious soul group that includes Samuel L. Jackson and Bernie Mac. In October, he released his third studio album, Evolver. Speaking about the reasons for calling the album Evolver, he stated: "I think people sometimes come to expect certain things from certain artists. They expect you to kind of stay in the same place you were at when you started out. Whereas I feel I want my career to be defined by the fact that I'm NOT gonna stay in the same place, and that I'm always gonna try new things and experiment. So, as I think this album represents a manifestation of that, I came up with the title 'Evolver'." The album was preceded by dance pop-influenced uptempo single "Green Light" which featured rapper Andre 3000 of OutKast and became his highest-charting single since "Ordinary People"; it was also released for the Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.

In 2009, Legend performed in The People Speak, a documentary feature film that uses dramatic and musical performances of the letters, diaries, and speeches of everyday Americans, based on historian Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States. Also in 2009, Legend and The Roots teamed up to record a collaborative album, Wake Up!, which was released on September 21, 2010. The first single released from the album was "Wake Up Everybody" featuring singer Melanie Fiona and rapper Common. In February 2011, Legend won three prizes at the 53rd Annual Grammy Music Awards. He was awarded Best R&B Song for "Shine", while he and The Roots won Grammy Awards for Best R&B Album and Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance for "Hang On in There". In March 2011, Legend and The Roots won two NAACP Image Awards - one for Outstanding Album (Wake Up!) and one for Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration.

2011-present: Tour, Duets and Love in the Future:
On July 5, 2011, songwriter Anthony Stokes filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against John Legend in United States District Court, in the District of New Jersey, alleging that Legend's song "Maxine's Interlude" from his 2006 album Once Again derives from Stokes' demo "Where Are You Now". Stokes claimed he gave Legend a demo of the song in 2004 following a concert at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Legend denied the allegations, telling E! Online, "I never heard of his song until he sued me. I would never steal anyone's song. We will fight it in court and we will prevail." However, nearly 60,000 people took a TMZ.com poll that compared the two songs and 65% of voters believed that Legend's "Maxine's Interlude" is a rip-off of Stokes' "Where Are You Now". A year later, Legend confirmed that he settled the lawsuit with Stokes.
Also in 2011, Legend completed a 50-date tour as a guest for British soul band Sade. In the San Diego stop, Legend confirmed that he is working on his next studio album and played a new song called "Dreams". Later, via his official website, he revealed the official title of the album to be Love in the Future, and debuted part of a new track called "Caught Up". The album has been executive-produced by Legend himself, along with Kanye West and Dave Tozer - the same team who worked on Legend's previous albums Get Lifted and Once Again. Legend has stated that his intention for the record was "To make a modern soul album - to flip that classic feel into a modern context."
Legend was granted an Honorary Doctorate Degree from Howard University at the 144th Commencement Exercises on Saturday, May 12, 2012. Legend was a judge on the ABC music show Duets along with Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Nettles and Robin Thicke. Legend's spot was originally for Lionel Richie but he had to leave the show due to a scheduling conflict. Duets debuted on Thursday, May 24, 2012 at 8/7c. He released his fourth studio album, Love in the Future, on September 3, 2013, debuting number 4 on the Billboard 200, selling 68,000 copies in its first week. The album has been nominated for Best R&B album at the upcoming 2014 Grammy Awards. Legend's third single of the album named, "All Of Me" became a big success peaking at #1 on both the iTunes charts and Billboard Hot 100. The song is a ballad that was dedicated to his wife that he recently married, and has been performed at the "56th Annual Grammy Awards".

Philanthropy:
In May 2007, Legend partnered with Tide laundry detergent to raise awareness about the need of families in St. Bernard Parish, (Chalmette, LA) one of the most devastated areas hit by Hurricane Katrina; he spent a day folding laundry at the Tide "clean start" mobile laundromat and visited homes which Tide is helping to rebuild in that community. On July 7, 2007, Legend participated in the Live Earth concert in London, performing "Ordinary People". After reading Professor Jeffrey Sachs' book, The End of Poverty, Legend started his Show Me Campaign in 2007; with this campaign, Legend called on his fans to help him in his initiative for those who reside in Bossaso Village and non-profit organizations that the campaign partners with. Also in 2007, Legend was the spokesman for GQ Magazine's "Gentlemen's Fund", an initiative to raise support and awareness for five cornerstones essential to men: opportunity, health, education, environment, and justice. In October 2007, Legend became involved with a project sponsored by The Gap, a retail clothing store chain in the United States. Through their "project red campaign" (also called "2 WEEKS"), The Gap's contribution to their global fund from the sale of each (2 WEEKS) t-shirt is equivalent to the average cost of 2 weeks of anti-retroviral medicine in Africa, which enables people living with HIV to lead healthy, normal lives.
In early 2008, he began touring with Alexus Ruffin and Professor Jeff Sachs of Columbia University's Earth Institute to promote sustainable development as an achievable goal. Legend joined Sachs as a keynote speaker and performer at the inaugural Millennium Campus Conference. Legend then joined the Board of Advisors of the Millennium Campus Network (MCN), and has supported MCN programs through online support and funding fellowships for MCN summer interns through the Show Me Campaign. In 2009, Legend gave AIDS Service Center NYC permission to remix his song "If You're Out There" to create a music video promoting HIV/AIDS awareness and testing.
On January 22, 2010, he performed "Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child" on the Hope for Haiti Now telethon show. On September 8, 2010, John Legend joined the national board of Teach For America. Legend also sits on the boards of The Education Equality Project, the Harlem Village Academies, and Stand for Children. He serves on the Harlem Village Academies' National Leadership Board. On September 9, 2010, he performed "Coming Home" on the Colbert Report as a tribute song for the end of combat operations in Iraq, and for the active troops and the veterans of the United States Armed Forces. In 2011, he contributed the track "Love I've Never Known" to the Red Hot Organization's most recent album "Red Hot+Rio 2." The album is a follow-up to the 1996 "Red Hot+Rio." Proceeds from the album sales will be donated to raise awareness and money to fight AIDS/HIV and related health and social issues. On March 6, 2012, John Legend was appointed by the World Economic Forum to the Forum of Young Global Leaders. On June 1, 2013, Legend performed at Gucci's global concert event in London whose campaign, "Chime For Change", aims to raise awareness of women's issues in terms of education, health and justice. At a press conference before his performance, Legend identified himself as a feminist saying, "All men should be feminists. If men care about women's rights the world will be a better place."

Personal life:
After eight years of dating, Legend became engaged to model Chrissy Teigen in December 2011. They married on September 14, 2013, in Como, Italy. wikipedia

About John Legend

John Roger Stephens (born December 28, 1978), better known by his stage name John Legend, is an American singer-songwriter and actor. He has won nine Grammy Awards. In 2007, Legend received the special Starlight Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Prior to the release of Legend’s debut album, his career gained momentum through a series of successful collaborations with multiple established artists. Legend added his voice to those of other artists, assisting in them reaching chart-topper hits. He lent his voice to Magnetic Man’s “Getting Nowhere,” Kanye West’s “All of the Lights”, on Slum Village’s “Selfish” and Dilated Peoples’ “This Way”. Other artists included Jay-Z’s “Encore”, and he sang backing vocals on Alicia Keys’ 2003 song “You Don’t Know My Name”, the Kanye West remix of Britney Spears’ “Me Against the Music”, and Fort Minor’s “High Road”. Legend played piano on Lauryn Hill’s “Everything Is Everything”. He has also gained chart topping hits from his solo work as well, including the Billboard Hot 100 number-one single, “All of Me”.

Early life:
Legend was born John Roger Stephens on December 28, 1978, in Springfield, Ohio. He is one of four children of Phyllis (née Lloyd), a seamstress, and Ronald Stephens, a factory worker and former National Guardsman. Throughout his childhood, Legend was homeschooled on and off by his mother. At age four, he performed with his church choir. He began playing the piano and at age seven. In 1987, when he was nine, his parents divorced. At the age of twelve, Legend attended North High School, from which he graduated four years later. Upon his salutatorian graduation, Legend was offered admission to Harvard University and scholarships to Georgetown University and Morehouse College. He attended the University of Pennsylvania, where he studied English with an emphasis on African American literature.
While in college, Legend served as president and musical director of a co-ed jazz and pop a cappella group called Counterparts. His lead vocals on the group’s recording of Joan Osborne’s “One of Us” received critical acclaim landing the song on the track list of the 1998 Best of Collegiate a Cappella compilation CD. Legend was also a member of the prestigious senior societies Sphinx Senior Society and Onyx Senior Honor Society while an undergraduate at Penn. While in college, Legend was introduced to Lauryn Hill by a friend. Hill hired him to play piano on “Everything Is Everything”, a song from her album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
During this period, he began to hold a number of shows around Philadelphia, eventually expanding his audience base to New York, Boston, Atlanta, and Washington, D.C. He finished college in 1999, and thereafter began producing, writing, and recording his own music. He released two albums independently; his self-titled demo (2000) and Live at Jimmy’s Uptown (2001), which he sold at his shows. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, Legend began working as a management consultant for the Boston Consulting Group. During this time, he began working on his demo and began sending his work to various record labels. In 2001, Devo Springsteen introduced Legend to then up-and-coming hip-hop artist Kanye West; Legend was hired to sing during the hooks of West’s music. After signing to West’s label, he chose his stage name from an idea that was given to him by poet J. Ivy, due to what he perceived “old-school sound”. J. Ivy stated, “I heard your music and it reminds me of that music from the old school. You sound like one of the legends. As a matter of fact, that’s what I’m going to call you from now on! I’m going to call you John Legend.” After J. Ivy continued to call him by the new moniker “John Legend,” others quickly caught on, including Kanye West, and the name stuck. Despite Legend’s reluctance to change his stage name, he eventually announced his new artist name as John Legend.

In March 2011, Legend and The Roots won two NAACP Image Awards – one for Outstanding Album (Wake Up!) and one for Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration.

2011-present: Tour, Duets and Love in the Future:
On July 5, 2011, songwriter Anthony Stokes filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against John Legend in United States District Court, in the District of New Jersey, alleging that Legend’s song “Maxine’s Interlude” from his 2006 album Once Again derives from Stokes’ demo “Where Are You Now”. Stokes claimed he gave Legend a demo of the song in 2004 following a concert at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Legend denied the allegations, telling E!

A year later, Legend confirmed that he settled the lawsuit with Stokes.
