John Legend has joined a rank that very few entertainers have achieved. Legend who won an Emmy Award for his role as a producer on the NBC live play Jesus Christ Superstar, became the first black man to reach EGOT status. EGOT is a status given to entertainers who have won a Emmy (for television work), a Grammy (for music), an Oscar(for movie work), and a Tony (for theater). He is also only one of 15 entertainers to achieve the rare status. Other entertainers who are in the EGOT club with Legend include Whoopi Goldberg, and Audrey Hepburn.
Legend’s wife Chrissy expressed her joy over her husband’s achievement on social media
