John Legend Contest Winners Revealed
Back in March, John Legend teamed up with OurStage to give fans a chance to show off their musical chops with his ‘Be Legendary’ contest. Aspiring singers and songwriters were invited to cover the R&B icon’s single ‘Everybody Knows’ and upload their take on the tune to the Radio One contest channel.
Well, it turns out Legend was so pleased with the results, he couldn’t settle on a single winner. Instead, two runners-up will get to play their song at a John Legend concert, and the Grand Prize Winner will get an opening spot at a high profile John Legend gig, all expenses paid. Newcomer Porsche Smith took home the top spot with her stripped down version of ‘Everybody Knows,’ featuring the singer’s soulful vocals over a jazzy guitar groove.
