John Legend’s EGOT win makes history
John Legend made history twice over the weekend.
The singer/actor won an Emmy at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday along with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice for producing the best variety special winner, “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert.”
At 39, Legend is the youngest ever EGOT winner and also became the first African-American man to snag that honor.
“EGOT” stands for the big four awards in the entertainment industry: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.
