R&B Singer John Legend took the trail to stump for Elizabeth Warren, who he described as having “brilliance.”
Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigan endorsed Warren in October.
Actor Jack Black of “School of Rock” has also endorsed Warren.
I know the bar is really low right now,” proclaimed Legend during his stump speech “We have a president who embarrasses this country. Wouldn’t it be refreshing to have a woman of Senator Warren’s brilliance replacing him?”
Deadline reports John Legend took to the campaign trail for Elizabeth Warren on Wednesday, telling a crowd of about 500 people at South Carolina State University that he had not planned to endorse in the primary but “it became abundantly clear the one candidate stood out from the rest.”
“We depend on our leaders to listen to us,” Legend said. “The best leaders in a democracy are more than just smart. the best leaders in a democracy have empathy.”
Instead of Warren doing a signature selfie line, she enlisted Legend to perform at a grand piano. Before a large American flag, He sang Ordinary People and All of Me, with many in the audience singing along.
His appearance at the MLK Auditorium on the Orangeburg, SC, campus came just a day after the Democratic debate, where Warren continued her attacks on Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire who already has spent more than $500 million in the race.
“She doesn’t spend time wining and dining billionaires hoping they will donate to her campaign,” Legend said, adding that she instead has depended on small-dollar contributions.
