John Legend’s Post-Election Message of Love Will Fill You with Hope
John Legend has some words to say to our divided nation, and no matter your political views, his message will resonate. Sharing a heartwarming photo with wife Chrissy Teigen and daughter Luna (above), the artist is asking us to unite through loving one another.
“It’s been quite a time for the United States and the rest of the world as we all watched the election results come in early Wednesday morning. Some of us wept for our country. Some of us celebrated. Some of us are already taking to the streets in protest,” he wrote on Wednesday night.
“In this time of conflict and uncertainty, it’s clear that we all need more love. I find it in my family and in my music. Embracing my family has made today full of love and light,” he shared. “But it’s also important that we show love and empathy to people who may not look like us or live like us. Those who are marginalized and rejected, feared and left behind.”

Legend revealed that the music video for his new single, “Love Me Now,” will drop on Friday, featuring “a diverse group of people from all over the world. From Standing Rock to Iraq, from Orlando to the DR. Love is universal. We all need it. We all can give it. And it will ultimately win over hate. I have to believe that.”
As seen in last week’s teaser, the video also features some adorable home footage with Teigen and baby Luna. This message of love is exactly what we needed to hear.
