JOHN LEGEND PLAYS BOCA RATON

Concert at Mizner Park Amphitheater

It doesn’t take much to make an outdoor summer concert better. But when it happens in Boca Raton’s Mizner Park, it doesn’t get much better than that, with dozens of shops, restaurants, bars and late-night venues on hand to enjoy both before and after the show.

It also helps when big-name acts make a stop at the city’s well-known amphitheater. This month, nine-time Grammy Award winning, multi-platinum selling artist John Legend will be continue his highly acclaimed 2014 North American “All of Me” tour at The Mizner Park Amphitheater on July 27th.

An American singer-songwriter and actor, Legend has won nine Grammy awards, and in 2007 he received the special Starlight award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Prior to the release of Legend’s debut album, his career gained momentum through a series of successful collaborations with multiple established artists. Legend added his voice to those of other artists, assisting in them reaching chart-topper hits.

Among them: Magnetic Man’s “Getting Nowhere,” Kanye West’s “All of the Lights,” and Slum Village’s “Selfish,” as well as Dilated Peoples’ “This Way.” Other artists included Jay-Z and Britney Spears. Legend also played piano on Lauryn Hill’s “Everything Is Everything.”

Most recently, Legend is best known for his chart topping Billboard Hot 100 No.1 peaking single, “All of Me.”Tickets for teh July 27th concert can be purchased online at www.ticketmaster.com.
