John Legend Celebrates a "Legendary Christmas!"

John Legend - a brand new holiday album is out now entitled; A Legendary Christmas with executive producer Raphael Saadiq. 

This is John Legend's first holiday album which does not disappoint. If you like the classics from Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, Nat King Cole than you will enjoy this album which still embraces the traditional with breathing a fresh new life into standards along with new songs. Great guest appearances such as Stevie Wonder plays his harmonica on the track; What Christmas Means To Me along with jazz singer Esperanza Spalding singing along in the fun tune; Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. 

During a recent appearance Legend explains;  “In the song, we talk about how frustrating it can be to look at your phone, read the news, see what’s happening,” he told the audience. “See how senators treat women who come forward with sexual abuse claims. See how people ridicule young people who march for the right to go to school without getting shot up. See how people would denigrate those who make the very simple claim that black lives matter. We can get frustrated when we see all of that, but we can’t give up. It’s not enough for us to talk about it or tweet about it, we’ve got to do something.”
