John Legend Becomes First Black Man To Win EGOT


Talented musician, John Legend has truly lived up to his name. John has achieved EGOT status, and he will forever go down in history as the first black male and the youngest person to ever achieve this, so getting this award was like a triple whammy of success.

If you don’t know what the EGOT is, it’s an acronym for the words, Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Awards. John Legend has earned all four of these prestigious awards, and now holds the same achievement as some of the most iconic celebrities in history. Audrey Hepburn, Mel Brooks and Whoopie Goldberg, who was the first black person to gain this status, also have this title to their name, so you can see the level of talent one must have to achieve this status.



Congrats John!
