Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - Broward - - FRONT PAGE - By Ben Crandell SOUTHFLORIDA.COM

John Le­gend will per­form Nov. 17 at the Fillmore Mi­ami Beach dur­ing a tour sup­port­ing his new Christ­mas al­bum, “A Leg­endary Christ­mas.”

Re­served-seat tick­ets for the per­for­mance cost $173.50, $153.50 and $103.50 and are on sale at Live­Na­tion.com, by call­ing 800-745-3000 and at the Fillmore box of­fice at 1700 Wash­ing­ton Ave.

More in­for­ma­tion can be found at JohnLe­gend.com.

“A Leg­endary Christ­mas,” a Columbia Records re­lease set to de­but Oct. 26, is Le­gend’s first col­lec­tion of hol­i­day-themed mu­sic. Raphael Saadiq is the ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer on the al­bum, which in­cludes cameo per­for­mances by Ste­vie Won­der and Esper­anza Spald­ing.

The ti­tle of the al­bum is not merely a play on the sur­name of the 10-time Grammy-win­ning singer, com­poser, pi­anist and pro­ducer. At the Emmy Awards a few weeks ago, Le­gend won an award for be­ing a pro­ducer (along with An­drew Lloyd Web­ber and Tim Rice) of the show that won the Emmy for best va­ri­ety spe­cial, “Je­sus Christ Su­per­star Live in Con­cert.”

The award put Le­gend in spe­cial com­pany as a mem­ber of the EGOT club, re­served for win­ners of the Emmy, Grammy, Os­car and Tony awards. Le­gend is the only African-Amer­i­can male among 15 per­form­ers who have won all four awards.
