And, another actual true fact, I am listening to the song right now as I share with you this story about John Legend:
Legend announced The Sound of Change Live [last week], a concert to raise funds and awareness for Chime for Change, a charity which raises funds to improve the lives of women worldwide.Well, you know that old saying—if Hillary Clinton AND John Legend say it, it must be true!
The gig will be at Twickenham Stadium, south London, on June 1 this year, and will feature performances from Florence & The Machine, Beyoncé, Ellie Goulding and BBC Sound of 2013 band, Haim. Producer and musician Timbaland will also be joining Legend on the line-up.
At a press conference for the event, Legend explained his commitment to the charity, which aims to promote and empower women internationally.
He said: "All men should be feminists. If men care about women's rights the world will be a better place." The singer, who has won nine Grammy awards and has collaborated with Kanye West, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys and The Roots, cited his mother as an inspiration.
Legend said: "We are better off when women are empowered – it leads to a better society."
