Listen to/Watch entire show:
This week on New Ground, a special visit with Grammy Award-winning superstar John Legend. John talks with host Chris Douridas about the strong ambition he showed at an early age (he was salutatorian, student council president, and prom king in high school), meeting Kanye West in college, finding his voice on the new album "Once Again", and his love for the great Nina Simone. He also gives us stunning performances of several tracks from the new collection - as well as a cover of Simone's classic take on "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood". Get lifted with John Legend - on New Ground.
