John Legend is a man who has been around a while. He was born in 1978 and has collaborated with some of music’s biggest stars including Kanye West, Jay-Z, Britney Spears, Alicia Keys and more. He’s won 9 Grammy Awards. He’s been behind a few songs…none of which have been really massive hits.
His latest single All Of Me has been a massive hit on NZ radio and no doubt gained momentum when he performed in Auckland at Vector Arena as the warm up act for Alicia Keys. The song is actually a dedication to his wife Chrissy Teigen.
His song also seems to be striking the right chord at Weddings in the last couple of months with the song requested by bride & grooms for their First Dance song or one of the songs featured in the Ceremony. Even Jon Dolan of Rolling Stone called the song a “mountainous piano crusher.”
With a chorus like this…how could you not think this is one of 2014’s most appropriate songs for any Wedding…
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh
