The legendary soulful singer and songwriter, John Legend is set to take centre stage at the 72nd Miss Universe pageant next month.
After having last performed at the competition in 2010, the Miss Universe Organization (MUO) recently made the announcement that the multi-award-winning artist would be returning to the Miss Universe stage.
Taking to its Instagram page to announce the exciting news, the organisation captioned the post by writing: “@JohnLegend will perform at the 72nd Annual MISS UNIVERSE Competition! The EGOT recipient, songwriter, producer and activist will perform on stage in El Salvador November 18th.
“What song do you hope to hear? Let us know in the comments below ⬇️,”
The executive producer and the president of the MUO, Paula Shugart said: “I first met John when he performed at Miss Universe in 2010 with The Roots. I have been a huge fan ever since, both of his music and his charity and social impact work. I know he’ll bring something very special to our stage, and will take the event to a whole new level.”
The “All Of Me” hitmaker has scooped the Grammy Awards 12 times with roots in soul, R&B, gospel and pop music. Legend will not be gracing the stage alone, as he will also be joined by other acts who will be revealed in the lead up to the much-loved event.
The competition will be taking place in El Salvador on November the 18th.
