John Legend: Singer, Songwriter...Spelling Bee Champ?

posted by Big Al Sams - 

We all know John Legend is a talented musician, but did you know he’s also a pretty good speller? Well, in case you missed it, it turns out that when Legend was just ten he won Ohio’s Springfield District Spelling Bee.

The "Springfield News-Sun" recently re-published a story from 1989 in which they praised their local winner noting he was the “only contestant who wore a suit and tie,” and adding that he "came to win ... and win he did."
