Award winner, platinum artist and songwriter John Legend ready for Nobels Peace Prize Concert December 11th.

Legend performed with great success during the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in 2006 and is coming back, still as relevant. "Our ability to cross borders - to cooperate to expel hatred with love, eradicate violence and instead seek justice - is what brings us closer to a peaceful future," says Legend. "As an artist, activist and father, I feel honored and humble about getting the opportunity to participate in this year's Peace Concert and using my voice as a spokesman for peace as a counterbalance to global turmoil."
"We are thrilled to welcome John Legend back to Norway and this year's Nobel Peace Prize Concert," says Olav Njålstad, Director of the Norwegian Nobel Institute. "His strong and influential voice, both on and off stage, will help spread the message about peace to our global audience».

Singer, songwriter and activist, John Legend, has garnered ten Grammy Awards, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and a Tony among others. In 2016, Legend released his fifth studio album "Darkness and Light" to great reviews and toured to sold out audiences across the globe.  Legend also serves as one of the founders for Get Lifted Film Co., a film and television production company based in Los Angeles. Get Lifted Film Co. serves as Executive Producers on the HBO documentary "Southern Rites", Pop Network docu-series "Sing it On", WGN America's series "Underground", and films such as "Southside With You" and "La La Land". In 2015, Legend initiated the #FREEAMERICA campaign; a campaign designed to change the national conversation of our country's misguided policies and to make a change in America's criminal justice system.

John Legend is the second artist released as an artist at this year's Nobel Peace Prize Concert, along with the previously announced EDM superstar Alan Walker. Several artists will be announced in the coming weeks.
