John Legend Makes History As First Black Man With EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar & Tony)!

John Legend is surely living up to his name! The singer made history this week as he became the first Black man to win the prestigious EGOT – Emmy, Grammy, Oscar & Tony (Award)! The collection was complete after Legend won an Emmy as producer for NBC’s “Jesus Christ Superstar, Live in Concert.”

How big of a deal is this? Only 14 other people have reached this historic feat in their careers. Legend has 10 Grammys, 1 Oscar, 1 Tony & now 1 Emmy. Congrats!
