John Legend has been the truth well before his Academy Award win, but like Common said, the accolade adds just another boost to his credibility.
Party people who attended SXSW 2015 can attest that the rain threw a monkey wrench in a few plans but Legend didn’t let it deter him from giving the newly launched AXE White Collective series an incredible performance.
An enamored crowded packed the area surrounding Cheer Up Charlie’s, located at Austin’s 900 Red River St. as Legend took his piano thrown and belted out greatest hits material such as ” “Tonight (Best You Ever Had)” and “Used to Love U.” Afterwards, he closed out his set with the Grammy award-winning records, “Ordinary People” and “All of Me.” Artists such as YG, Lolawolf, ASTR and James Davis preceeded the Axe White Label Collective stage before Legend, so the fact he was able to end things with ballads speaks volumes for his talent.
