#6 John Legend
Now, this is a quite amazing story! All through his early adolescence, John was self-taught by his mom. He started playing the piano at the young age of seven, and by the age of twelve, he went to North High School. He finished from high school salutatorian of his class, at sixteen years old. As indicated by John, he was offered a scholarship to Morehouse College, Georgetown University, and Harvard. He chose, however, to go to the College of Pennsylvania where he considered studying English.
A year before John’s graduation, John’s college companion acquainted him with none other than Lauryn Hill who hired him to play piano for one of her tracks. In a comparative case in 2001, he was introduced to Kanye West who he later joined working.
