Keys: ‘Legend is special’    ·    February 6th, 2006

Soul star Alicia Keys has named singer/songwriter John Legend as her musical role model because his work is unaltered by industry success.

The Fallin’ hitmaker, who asked Legend to open her tour last year (05), has huge admiration for the artist’s authenticity.

She says, “He’s special. He’s a person that plays and sings and writes his own music, he’s not trying to keep up with the Joneses.

“There’s nothing more special than to see an artist playing his own music. I think a lot of people are seeking it out - the truth of it.”

Legend leads the nominations at this week’s Grammys with eight apiece, alongside Mariah Carey and Kanye West.
