We always knew John Legend had the voice of an angel, but this latest announcement is the confirmation we needed.
NBC announced today that Legend will star in the live musical remake of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s rock opera, Jesus Christ Superstar. British theater director David Leveaux will helm the project, and Alice Cooper (yes, that Alice Cooper) will join Legend on stage as King Herod.
No further details have been revealed, but we’re already looking forward to Chrissy Teigen’s live commentary.
Jesus Christ Superstar premieres on Easter Sunday (April 1) on NBC.
