Cool Dad Bona Fides: John Legend built a reputation performing on records for artists like Kanye West and Lauryn Hill before releasing his debut solo album in 2004. His songs are piano-driven, passionate, and hugely popular. How good is Legend at what he does? In September, he won an Emmy and became the youngest and first African-American man to EGOT. When he’s not winning all the awards, Legend is publicly advocating for teachers or at home getting trolled by his wife Chrissy Teigen and playing with his daughter Luna Simone or his son Miles Theodore.
