Grammy award winning singer and pianist, platinum selling artist, John Legend will headline the first ever Curaçao North Sea Jazz Festival, September 3-4th 2010. Legend is expected to wow the crowds along with music legends George Benson and Sergio Mendes as well as other international acts. The Curaçao North Sea Jazz Festival will be held in the World Trade Center Curaçao, but will also include a number of exciting, vibrant and energetic jazz concerts all over the island a full week before the festival. John Legend made his break-through with hits like “Ordinary people” and “P.D.A. (We Just Don’t Care).” In 2008, he collaborated with Estelle and Andre 3000 to release his third studio album, Evolver. The popular R&B and soul singer with the distinctive voice is a certified star, his many Grammy awards a testament to the success of his career.
“The North Sea Jazz Festival is an unprecedented event for Curaçao and to have John Legend headline this all encompassing musical experience is a coup for Curaçao, the Festival and the fans,” says Brenda Benjamin, Director of Marketing, and Curaçao Tourist Board. “Including Mr. Legend, we could not have a better line-up of illustrious musicians to kick off this Jazz Festival. Curaçao visitors who come for the jazz festival will not only love the event but will want to experience everything our unique island has to offer from remarkable diving to historic sites, beautiful beaches, high-end shopping and fun casino entertainment.”
