ABC/Eddy ChenJohn Legend will be among many artists featured on the upcoming twelfth season of PBS’ Live from the Artists Den.
Legend stars in the first episode, which premieres Thursday, September 7.
His performance will take place in Harlem’s Riverside Church in New York City, where the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his historic “Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break the Silence” speech.
In a statement, John says, “I grew up playing in the church, so when I come back to the church, I feel a sense of nostalgia and connection that is really at the core of who I am as an artist.”
“Especially with this album, which I think draws from my gospel roots in a significant way, it means a lot to me to perform here.”
Live from the Artists Den showcases some of music’s brightest stars performing in non-traditional, and sometimes historic, settings.
