Congratulations John Legend!

The Green Light singer became the first black man to earn an EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award) last night!

Legend won a Creative Arts Emmy Award last night for producing Jesus Christ Superstar Live.

Legend’s wife, Chrissy Teigen took it to Twitter to celebrate the outstanding accomplishment.

In the photo shared by Teigen, John is joined by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice who also earned EGOT status during the two-day event.

Back in 2002, Whoopi Goldberg became the first black female actor to earn an EGOT.

John Legend currently holds 10 Grammy awards, an Oscar for his song Glory in the film Selma, and a Tony for co-producing Jitney along with his Emmy.
