On October 28, recording artist, concert performer and philanthropist John Legend, announced on Facebook his support for the International Rescue Committee.

“I’m proud to be an ‘IRC Voice,’ helping raise awareness about the International Rescue Committee’s life-changing work providing educational opportunities to refugee children,” he said.

Founded in 1933, the International Rescue Committee is a global leader in emergency relief, rehabilitation, protection of human rights, post-conflict development, resettlement services and advocacy for those uprooted or affected by conflict and oppression. Of every $1 the IRC spends, 93ยข goes to programs and services that directly benefit refugees and war-affected populations.

John Legend has won nine Grammy awards and was named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people. He launched his career as a session player and vocalist, contributing to best-selling recordings by Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys, Jay-Z and Kanye West before recording his own unbroken chain of Top 10 albums.

John Legend is very involved in charity activities – earlier this year he contributed the track “Love I’ve Never Known” to the Red Hot Organization’s most recent album “Red Hot+Rio 2.” The album is a follow-up to the 1996 “Red Hot+Rio.” Proceeds from the album sales will be donated to raise awareness and money to fight AIDS/HIV and related health and social issues.

His involvement with the International Rescue Committee were appreciated by his fans through Facebook.
