John Legend: What I do is I create music that hopefully entertains people, inspires people, makes people feel good, makes people fall in love again, makes people think. That’s what I do.
I do it first of all as a creative process, trying to write something special for people, trying to write something that is a beautiful piece of artwork, trying to write something that feels good for me to sing and hopefully will feel good for people to listen to.
And then I try to translate that into a great performance. I try to put on a great concert. I try to bring all these influences I have together and make it an entertaining spectacle for people to see and hear. That’s mainly what I do. I do a lot of others things too, but those are the main things that I do.
