The aim of the concert, according to the ‘All Of Me’ singer, is to lift the spirits of his fans across the world as they practise social distancing.
“Social distancing is important, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. I did a little at-home performance to help lift your spirits,” John Legend captioned the live video.
The concert forms part of the new “Together at Home” concert series led by Coldplay’s Chris Martin, the singer confirmed he has new music on the way.

John Legend took the opportunity to announce a new album.
“Just so you guys know, I am putting out a new album this year,” Legend said. “Everybody’s home, you need stuff, you need music, you need TV, you need films. You need stuff to entertain you, so I’m going to put some music out.”
“We’re going to release some music,” he added. “I don’t know what the schedule going to be like, we’re just going to start putting stuff out. We’re in the process of mixing a lot of the stuff on the record. Luckily, I already wrote and recorded most of it.”
