JOHN LEGEND was this week’s guest on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Desert Island Discs’.  The multi- garlanded singer’s choices were interesting and intriguing. His book choice was ‘The Dawn of Everything: A New History of Humanity’ by David Graeber & David Wengrow  while he chose a piano as his luxury item.

Amongst the records he selected to take to his island were Curtis Mayfield’s ‘Superfly’ and Aretha’s ‘Day Dreaming’ – commenting that Aretha and Curtis were two of the greatest artists of all time. Amen.

The show is available on the BBC I Player and BBC Sounds.
