“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.
