As part of the Student Programming Association’s Distinguished Speaker series, nine-time Grammy-winning artist John Legend will speak and perform at Eisenhower Auditorium on Monday, January 14.
Tickets will be free to students beginning January 8, and if available, the general public on January 11, at the Bryce Jordan Center, HUB Information Desk, and the Eisenhower Auditorium.
John Legend kicked off his career as a recording artist with his debut album “Get Lifted” in 2004, which went on to sell more than three million copies worldwide. Legend is known for hits like “Ordinary People,” “Tonight, and “Save Room.”
On top of his acclaimed musical career, Legend has gained notoriety as a philanthropist/social activist — even being named as one of TIME Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” in 2009. His “Show Me Campaign,” is aimed at fighting poverty around the world. It is for this reason that Legend will not only be performing for Penn State but speaking as well.
What’s a better way to enjoy the first week back for the spring semester than a great free program by SPA?
