Broadway talents including Amber Iman (Hamilton), Kristolyn Lloyd (Dear Evan Hansen), and Alysha Umphress (American Idiot) complete the lineup for the next installment of the acclaimed Broadway Sings concert series, honoring singer-songwriter John Legend. Cast members from Broadway shows including Frozen, Wicked, Kinky Boots, and Mean Girls will sing completely new arrangements of the hits of the American singer, accompanied by a 14-piece orchestra playing original orchestrations of his music.

Also featured in the lineup are Demarius R. Copes (Mean Girls), Max Chernin (Bright Star), Eden Espinosa (Brooklyn), Mark Evans (The Play That Goes Wrong), J. Harrison Ghee (Kinky Boots), Aisha Jackson (Frozen), Brittney Johnson (Wicked), Corey Mach (Kinky Boots), Justin Mortelliti (Escape to Margaritaville), Solea Pfeiffer (Hamilton), Colton Ryan (Dear Evan Hansen), Ryan Vasquez (Hamilton), and Raena White (Chicago).

The concert will give tribute to this soulful R&B singer and his extensive repertoire, including "Glory", "All of Me", "Like I'm Gonna Lose You", and "Ordinary People". The music will be orchestrated and arranged by Joshua Stephen Kartes.

John Legend has released five studio albums, four live albums, and has recently entered the much sought-after EGOT status. He has received ten Grammy Awards, a Primetime Emmy Award (for the recent NBC adaptation of Jesus Christ Superstar), an Academy Award for co-writing the song "Glory" from the film Selma, and a Tony Award for co-producing Jitney on Broadway. He is one of 15 people (and the first African-American man) to achieve the EGOT status. Legend is also known for being actively involved in charity work and philanthropy, raising awareness for issues such as poverty, education, and criminal justice reform.

Broadway Sings John Legend, produced and directed by Corey Mach (Invisible Thread, Wicked), will celebrate the talent and success of this award-winning performer. Previous artists honored in the series include Adele, Michael Jackson, Beyoncé, The Beatles, and most recently Alanis Morissette.
