TV personality Chrissy Teigen and singer John Legend attended the 47th NAACP Image Awards presented by TV One at Pasadena Civic Auditorium on February 5, 2016 in Pasadena, California. The expectant parents were all smiles as they posed on the red carpet.
John was honored with the president’s award for his ongoing humanitarian efforts during the ceremony. Legend accepted the award, thanking his wife and the NAACP.
“We know that we stand on the shoulders of giants who risked their lives to bring us closer to true freedom,” Legend said. “And of course, we are still fighting for freedom,” he added, noting police injustice, before sending out an inspiring and positive message. “I’m hopeful that our generation will demand and achieve radical change in our lifetime.”
“Our lives should, indeed, matter just as much as anyone else’s,” he said. “Fighting for justice isn’t an act of hate, it’s an act of love. So let’s spread love, let’s make the world a more beautiful and just place. We have so much opportunity, let’s not waste it.”
