Christmas Songs by John Legend

Singer John Legend

Following the example of Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Mariah Carey or Bob Dylan, singer John Legend broke into the Christmas tunes with A Legendary Christmas, an album that recreates the great classics of the Season.

It has long been one of the traditions of the holiday season for pop-rock stars to edit albums of Christmas songs. Some even become Christmas classics, just like " All I Want for Christmas Is You" did, an unpublished theme by Mariah Carey that was included in the album Merry Christmas, released in 1994.

Since then, and every time December approaches, it has never stopped playing. That will also be John Legend's wish, with the recently released " A Legendary Christmas," the first Christmas album by the American singer and songwriter, which brings together some of the greatest Christmas classics.

The multi-award-winning artist, who has also become the first black man to enter the narrow EGOT group - Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award winners - also wants to be part of this other club, made up of people as diverse as Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Mariah Carey, Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Nat King Cole, The Carpenters or James Brown, whose names also became associated with Christmas through music. And when you hear the 12 songs that comprise A Legendary Christmas, you realize that John Legend has everything to achieve this.
