He started with the piano at the young age of seven.
He studied English at the University of Pennsylvania, where he presided over a music club called Countepart . Upon graduating in 1999, he began writing his own music and, a year later, released his first two albums: “Demo” , in 2000; Y “Live at Jimmy’s Uptown” in 2001. It would be in this year when John would be introduced to Kanye West , with whom he collaborated as an opening act and with whose label he would end up signing. It is from then on when it was renamed John Legend.
