John Legend has come out and spoke about how grateful he is for all the people who reached out to him and Chrissy Teigen. The model who had given updates about her third pregnancy also shared about the loss of their baby boy.
The singer, however, opened up in an interview and revealed that they heard from a lot of people who went through the same. He said it encouraged him after getting love and support from so many people. The Wild singer said, “We’ve heard from so many people who have gone through it too; and it’s been encouraging to be getting so much love and support from so many people who have experienced similar things.”
John was promoting his latest movie, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey when he talked about the situation. He said that his wife sharing what she did has been helpful for other people who go through the same. The singer shared, “Chrissy sharing what she shared has also been helpful for other people who are going through it and may go through it in the future. So thank you.”
Chrissy had taken a month-long break from her social media after the news. She returned to the medium last month as she also penned an emotional letter to her fans and friends while talking about the grief they are going through. The Cravings author recently shared that she got a tattoo as a tribute to her late son, Jack.
“We Hold Onto The Fact That We Have Two Beautiful Kids”
The model also shared the gesture of her little daughter, Luna when the ashes of Jack arrived. John was asked about their family continuing to move ahead in a positive light even after their personal loss. The singer responded, “Well, I think we have to.”
The singer explained that whenever they go through personal challenges as well as a nation; they have to hold on to what makes them optimistic. He said, “What makes us hopeful, hold onto the things that bring us joy”. John added that his family has gone through a tough year and they hold on to their two kids that they love.
He said, “And in my family, as we’ve gone through a tough year, we hold onto the fact that we have two beautiful kids that we love; and are such a beautiful reflection of who we are and what we value”. The Conversations in the Dark singer also shared his thoughts about Joe Biden being elected as the President.
A day before the election, he had taken to the stage with his family, as he performed at a presidential rally for Biden. He sang Georgia on My Mind when the results came in; and noted that some people didn’t get what they wanted out of the election. However, he said it was important for the nation to turn a page.
The singer explained, “I felt like Georgia played a key role in getting us there; and I wanted to sing them a song to thank them for the true, beautiful work of democracy; that was encouraged by people like Stacey Abrams; and other people who went out there and registered hundreds of thousands of people to vote.”
“It Took A Lot Of Faith In Democracy”
He further shared, “That took a lot of work and it took a lot of optimism and it took a lot of faith in democracy. Faith in the people that if we put in the work to get them involved; that they would go out there and make their voices heard. And they did and it’s such a powerful story.”
John’s latest project, which is a musical film, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey, is produced by him. It revolves around a toymaker, Jeronicus Jangle who’s inventions burst with whimsy and wonder. However, when his trusted apprentice (Keegan-Michael Key) steals his most prized creation, it’s up to his equally bright and inventive granddaughter (newcomer Madalen Mills); and a long-forgotten invention — to heal old wounds and reawaken the magic within.
The project includes original songs from John, Usher, Davy Nathan, Philip Lawrence, and Kiana Lede. The singer who turned producer for the venture shared the exciting opportunity. He revealed that creators David Talbert and his wife, Lyn have been dreaming about this film for 20 years.
John further said, “They joined forces with us and with Netflix. We put together this amazing cast, great music, all the things that we needed to make this vision come to life, and here it finally is.”
