Grammy Award-winning artist John Legend and Harlem Village Academies CEO and founder Deborah Kenny announced a holiday book giveaway of "Born to Rise" in an interview with co-hosts Charlie Rose, Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell that was broadcast live today Dec. 11, 2012, on CBS THIS MORNING on the CBS Television Network (7:00 AM – 9:00 AM).
