John Legend thanks those responsible for helping him realize his dream. In a recent interview surrounding his new single “My Imagination,” off the Finding Neverland album, the Golden Globe recipient opened up about who has believed in him and his career since the beginning.

“I think it’s critical that you have people believe in you. I had people all along the way,” he said.

Legend continued, “When I moved to New York, I met Kanye, and he signed me to his production company, and really made an investment in launching my career as a solo artist. So, his believing in me was really important…”

However, West wasn’t alone in his support of Legend…  He adds, “I had teachers. I had music teachers. I had choir directors, all that saw my talent and wanted to nurture that and help me grow as an artist.”

Legend’s words prove that “everyone starts somewhere” and no matter where you fall in your career, having a strong support system is critical to success! Of course, we can’t forget another major supporter in Legend’s circle, his lovely wife and biggest fan, Chrissy Teigen.

Other artists on the Finding Neverland album include Zendaya, Nick Jonas, Ellie Goulding, Jennifer Lopez, Trey Songz and Christina Aguilera. Finding Neverland is in stores now!
