John Legend to Receive Recording Academy’s First Global Impact Award

John Legend, who became an EGOT in 2018, probably doesn’t need another award, but they’re still nice to get. Legend will receive the first-ever Recording Academy Global Impact Award at the Recording Academy Honors presented by the Black Music Collective. The in-person event is set to take place at Resorts World Las Vegas on Saturday, April 2, the night before the 64th Annual Grammy Awards.

Summer Walker is set to perform at the event, D-Nice will spin music, MC Lyte will be the voice of the evening and Adam Blackstone will serve as musical director. Blackstone served in the same capacity at the 2022 Oscars. D-Nice, whose virtual Club Quarantine parties over the past two years have boosted his profile, also performed on the March 27 Oscar telecast.
