John Legend sat down with CNBC's John Harwood to promote Democrat Stacey Abrams, the African-American women running for governor of Georgia, the Florida ballot initiative Amendment Four, criminal justice reform, Democratic presidential politics, the Twitter fights he and his wife Chrissy Teigen have waged with President Donald Trump, and Kanye West.

At age 39, John Legend has carved a major role in American culture. He has found success as a singer, songwriter and actor with hits like "Ordinary People" and "All of Me" and in movies such as "La La land." He is one of just 15 entertainers to win individual Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony awards.

Born into a blue-collar family in Springfield, Ohio, Legend studied English at the University of Pennsylvania and worked for a global business consulting firm. While building his music career since then, Legend has become unusually informed about, and active in, American politics.
