ABC has shared a teaser for John Legend and Family: A Bigger Love Father’s Day featuring the 41-year-old singer and his family.
The preview shows Legend spending time with his wife, Chrissy Teigen, and their two kids, daughter Luna, 4, and son Miles, 2. Legend also shares an emotional moment with his dad, Ronald Stephens. “Thank you for being such a great example. I’m so grateful that you’re my father,” Legend says. “You're going to make me cry,” Stephens responds.
A Bigger Love Father’s Day airs Sunday on Father’s Day at 9 p.m. ET. Legend will perform new songs from his forthcoming album, Bigger Love, due out Friday.
Anthony Anderson, Ike Barinholtz, Common, Michael Ealy, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Jim Gaffigan, Tony Gonzalez, Lil Rel Howery, Taran Killam, Ne-Yo, Shaquille O’Neal, Patton Oswalt, Scottie Pippen, Ahmad Rashad, Andy Roddick, Deion Sanders, Marlon Wayans, Stevie Wonder and Roy Wood, Jr., will also make appearances.
On a Zoom listening session for his Bigger Love album earlier this month, Legend said that the stirring 16-track project’s lyrics “feel different now, given the circumstances,” but views part of his duty as an artist to “lift people up.” “This album is more focused on joy, love, hope, and on optimism,” he adds. “I think my last album 2016’s Darkness and Light was kind of an album about being worried about being concerned and I definitely feel both. I feel like the world needs some joy.”
Meanwhile, Legend and Alicia Keys will go face to face on Instagram Live for the Verzuz TV battle on June 19th. The two will battle with their most famous hits over the years.
