John Legend Gives A Lesson In Home Schooling

Published: 2007-03-12
What's just as common as a musician starting a clothing line? The answer, a musician starting their own record label. John Legend is ready to make the move from singer to record executive. Legend has titled his new venture, Home School.

Legend has recently signed his very first artist to Home School, Estelle. Estelle hails from Britain and is a rapper MC. Legend is excited about the prospects, "Estelle's the first artist we've signed. My younger brother, Vaughn Anthony, is also gonna get signed soon, and I got a couple of MCs that I'm working with as well. We're growing, and I'm just trying to find great talent and bring it to light. It's a lot of fun,"

John is also focusing on writing new material with two flawless singers, Whitney Houston and Jennifer Hudson. "You never know with those things- you see what happens. If it comes out hot, it will make the album. If not, then it will just be an experience."

Along with other peoples careers he has his own to focus on as well. His tour with Corinne Bailey Rae starts April 3 carrying on through mid-May.
