I began yesterday as a John Legend fan. I woke up this morning in love with John Legend. (Just kidding, hubby, lol)
But seriously. John Legend put down a performance out of this world last night at the Wildey Gymnasium. From the first note of When I Used To Love You to the final note of Stay With You, he had the large crowd eating out of his hands.
Opening act Philip 7 and Masala did a sterling job as well, and the high point for me was 72-member strong St. Leonard's Boys' Choir accompanying Philip 7 on the new single Blame It On Love.
John Legend sauntered on to the stage around 9:00 p.m. and staked his claim in the hearts of his fans. Did I mention he's not exactly hard on the eyes?
His band did an excellent job, but for me it was about the man and his piano. It was on sale after the show for $37,000, by the way.
The entertainer belted out hit after hit from his three albums, and the crowd screamed as the familiar strains of Ordinary People, So High, Green Light, Can't Be Your Lover, This Time and others rang out.
One lucky lady got a chance to slow dance with the singer and received a kiss and a rose. I wonder if she's recovered by now.
Wuhloss. The show was worth every penny and then some. Actually, I think I might owe John some money back. I hope to see him again in Bim one day.
