WATCH: John Legend Sings at Dog’s Wedding for Charity
John Legend usually plays for sold out arenas but he’s willing to play your wedding or any other special event for the sake of charity.
As part of the singer’s Show Me Campaign, Legend is offering those who donate money towards rebuilding the auditorium at the former South High School in Springfield, OH, a chance to win a private concert.
“Your wedding? Cool, I’m into that. Backyard BBQ? I can hang. Toddler’s birthday party? Sure, as long as there’s no clown. I’ll dedicate a song to you and yours, let you perch yourself on the piano and maybe we’ll even do a Chopsticks duet! (I’ll take the hard part),” he states on the charity’s website.
He’ll also do your dog’s wedding as he shows in a video released to promote the campaign. In it he sings his hit “All of Me” while his two adopted dogs, Puddy and Pippa, dressed in full wedding garb (and looking mighty cute) tie the knot. Legend’s real life wife, Chrissy Teigen, then walks in as he’s giving the happy couple a heartfelt toast and although shocked at first, hurries to get dressed up for the occasion.
“I want to create some beautiful memories with you,” says Legend at the end of the video. “I want to sing at your wedding, bar mitzvah, any other special event you’re having. I want to sing for you.”
Donations start at $10 and go up to $25,000 with prizes for it ranging from just a digital wedding-themed thank you card from John, Puddy, and Pippa to backstage passes at a concert and lunch with the singer. In addition, all of the donors have the chance to win the biggest prize of all — the private John Legend concert.
The Show Me Campaign was launched by Legend in 2007 to give every child a chance at a good education by supporting programs and proven solutions.
The campaign will continue until April 16th and until then, the Springfield City School District’s Board of Education will match all campaign donations up to $1 million in funds raised.
