Legend Doesn't Really Like Soccer
But that small detail didn’t stop him from getting paid for…
singing at the opening concert for the World Cup in South Africa.
Legend is best known for writing songs and making hits, but the Grammy Award winning R&B singer admits he is not that big of a soccer fan. Legend told the Associated Press he’s a “casual” soccer fan, only really watching every four years, when the World Cup is taking place.
John Legend performed with The Black Peas, Alicia Keys, and Shakira on stage in Johannesburg during the event. You can see parts of the concert on ABC tomorrow night. Check out the photos of the performance in the gallery below.
