A Legendary Evening Of Soul

Six-time Grammy Award winner John Legend closed out his Evolver World Tour with performances Sept. 10 at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center and Sept. 12 at Blaisdell Concert Hall.

Hawaii's Na Hoku Award Winner and island entertainer, Eric Gilliom, brought the crowd to their feet with the opening sets for the sold out show on Maui.

Legend is a five-time platinum album selling music star responsible for three hit albums "Get Lifted," "Once Again" and "Evolver" with award-winning songs, "Ordinary People," "Used to Love U," "Green Light," "Save Room" and "Another Again."

Labeled by music critics as "one of the most compelling and important singer/songwriters of this generation," Legend founded the Show Me Campaign, a nonprofit charity organization to fund underdeveloped African villages.

A portion of the proceeds from the Hawaii shows and the Evolver Tour will go to provide healthier living conditions for these villages, such as mosquito nets to curb the millions of avoidable deaths from malaria, free meals to children attending school and clean water sources.
