In case you haven’t refreshed our site in the last month (and then shame on you, really), soul crooner John Legend will be appearing at the Shanghai Yunfeng Theater tomorrow night at 8pm. He’ll be joined on stage by Hong Kong celebrity and “singer-songwriter” Karen Mok. You can still buy tickets at Emma Ticketmaster’s site.
Legend rose to fame after his multiplatinum first album Get Lifted, which benefited from collaborations with famous rappers and producers such as Kanye West and Snoop Dogg. Most recently, he released Evolver, which featured guest performances by Estelle and Andre 3000, and debuted at number 4 of the U.S. Billboard 200.
In the meantime, he’s also been worked the philanthropy circuit. Legend appeared at Live Earth in London and became the spokesperson for GQ Magazine’s The Gentlemen’s Fund in 2007. He also launched his own charity project, The Show Me Campaign in 2007 – which sought to help victims of extreme poverty in Mbola, Tanzania.
Shanghai will be the latest stop on the six-time grammy award winner’s world tour concert, and it’ll also be the first time he’s ever appeared on our shores. While we’re excited to hear what he will sing, we’ve found one song he probably won’t:
