After getting his start as a background musician for artists like Lauryn Hill and Alicia Keys, the 44-year-old released his debut album, Get Lifted, in 2004 and hasn't looked back since. Legend went on to release seven more albums and in 2018, he made history as the first Black man to reach EGOT status when he scored an Emmy for Jesus Christ Superstar.

Now, the soulful singer is a coach on NBC's The Voice, and it's easy to see why he's a fan favorite. While speaking with E! News about his favorite part of the job, he said, "I get inspired because I see how excited these artists are to work with me, and how excited they are to be heard. This is their dream come true, and it's inspiring for me to see that…It's just fun for me to help them work on all the little intricacies of the performance and getting it right."

Additionally, Legend has done eight successful tours, including his most recent one, An Evening with John Legend. His overall earnings are unknown, but according to PollStar, during his Bigger Love tour in 2021, the average number of ticket sales per show was 4,033, which was calculated to a total gross of $448,494 per show.
