John Legend wins a Tony award for Jitney

On June 11, John Legend  won a Tony award as co-producer of Jitney. Chrissy Teigen took on Twitter to announce the news.


Jitney is a play by August Wilson that was first premiered in the year 1982. Set in 1977 Pittsburgh, the play portrays the lives of men who tries to earn their living by driving unlicensed cabs or Jitney. Revived again this year, the play was premiered at Broadway.

John Legend is no stranger to accolades. The singer has quite a good number of achievements under his belt. Over the years, Legend has won 10 Grammy awards and in 2015, he won an Oscar for his single “Glory”.

Adding Tony award to his list, the singer is just one step away from the EGOT status. If Legend wins an Emmy Award, he will earn the EGOT status which means he will become the artist to win all 4 major American entertainment awards.

We wish singer all the luck!
