John Legend, nine-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, will take the stage on Oscar Sunday at Academy’s official post-Oscars celebration, the Governors Ball

“John Legend is one of the industry’s most innovative and talented artists,” said Jeffrey Kurland, Costume Design Branch governor and chair of the Governors Ball. “We’re thrilled he will be joining us to celebrate this year’s achievements in film, and for what promises to be a most memorable evening.”

Legend’s critically acclaimed 2004 debut album, Get Lifted, garnered eight Grammy nominations and earned him a win for best R&B album. That year he also won best new artist and best male R&B vocal performance for the hit single “Ordinary People.” His fourth solo album, Love in the Future, is nominated for best R&B album at the upcoming Grammy Awards. Legend’s songs have been included in the soundtracks of such films as WAITING FOR SUPERMAN, THINK LIKE A MAN and DJANGO UNCHAINED.


In 2007 Legend launched an education-focused organization, the Show Me Campaign, which works to break the cycle of poverty in both the U.S. and Africa. He also serves on the boards of several other organizations, including Stand for Children, Teach For America, the Harlem Village Academies and PopTech.

Legend will perform for the Ball’s 1,500 guests, which will include Oscar winners and nominees, show presenters and performers, and other luminaries. The Ball will be held in the Ray Dolby Ballroom on the top level of the Hollywood & Highland Center®.
