Mad Props

John Legend is set to perform at a benefit concert in Ghana later this month to aid flood victims. Over 1.5 million people have been affected by devastating heavy raining seasons in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Legend says he fell in love with Ghana on a trip there last spring, and has since started a charity organization.

I think this is really cool. I'm pleasantly surprised, as I am with this subtle number from John's most recent CD, Once Again. John does a bit of soul-searching on this one, and I think it's better for it.

John Legend - Show Me

Stereogum discusses one of John's influences, made apparent in this song.

That first bit of guitar play is lovely.
