On Sept. 9, Legend made history as the youngest person ever - and the first African-American man - to receive an EGOT. (EGOT stands for Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony awards.) Legend, along with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, won an Emmy for producing the best variety special winner, “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert.” The singer has also won ten Grammy Awards to his name and took home an Oscar in 2015 for his song “Glory” featured in Selma. The singer also won a Tony in 2017 for his role as a co-producer for the production of Jitney.
