New-soul singer John Legend’s “Made to Love” tour, which comes to town Monday, is named for the hit song from his current album, “Love in the Future.”
Before he went on the road in late October, Legend, a nine-time Grammy Award winner, released the sexy, romantic video of “All of Me,” the third single from “Love in the Future,” his fourth studio album. The video features Legend’s wife, Chrissy Teigen, and footage from the couple’s wedding and honeymoon in Italy.
Born John Stephens in Ohio, the future star began singing gospel and playing piano at age 5 and left home at 16 to start college. In 1998, he was asked to play piano on Lauryn Hill’s “Everything Is Everything.” It led to writing and session work for such artists as Janet Jackson, Kanye West and Alicia Keys.
One of sexiest singers in soul/R&B, Legend released his first album, “Get Lifted,” in 2004. First single “Ordinary People” led to a fast-rising career.
8 p.m. Monday at the Paramount Theatre, 911 Pine St.Seattle; $47-$87 (877-784-4849 or stgpresents.org).
