chicago 2016 olympics w/ grammy winner john legend August 19, 2009 I first met john on the roof of a tall building in Beverly hills where super famous Hollywood actor/exec types sat around sipping champagne at a fancy vip party not only shocked that someone was able to get a piano up there, but that the man playing and singing was a no name guy that blew every single one of them off their feet… next thing you know I see him at the grammys… then at the inauguration playing for the president… and so on… I most recently met John at the underground, and although he had been reaching the highest of accomplishments, he was still a solid, humble, smart… Midwesterner… that just loved Chicago, and Chicagoans! In fact, he had so many chicago connections, that he was very happy to take a moment to sit with me at his hotel before his last chicago concert, and share that love for our city, and the idea of having the Olympics here in 2016! Enjoy… join me for the celebrity bid interview launch party this thursday, august 20th at rockit bar & grill (22 w hubbard) 7pm-9pm : rsvp – email@example.com oh, and don’t forget, i’m posting at least one new celebrity interview like this a day here until i land in copenhagen on oct. 2nd to hear the official announcement that (hopefully) chicago/usa wins the title of home to the 2016 olympics! how does that happen? you help spread the news! twitter, facebook, myspace, email blast,.. whatever you can to get everyone in your city, country, world,… to watch these videos and hear how great chicago is (and the usa is in general), and hear how much we want to host this cultural, sport, and friendship strengthening celebration in our home country in 2016! 2 Responses Maralyn August 20, 2009 Doesn’t surprise me that John Legend is from the midwest….he just seems soooo nice. An important thing he mentioned was Chicago being a very cosmopolitan city (even though we are nice), all of those people from around the world that will be visiting our city will add to this cosmopolitan flair! But something else it made me think of too, all of those people will very likely return to the city another time and spend their dollars in our city, they will talk to other people they know about how cool Chicago is and THOSE people will visit our city and spend money….it’s a win-win situation. Chicago 2016!! Reply Emale August 23, 2009 I saw him in concert. Too good! Robin Thicke and John Legend were amazing in concert!
