Team Legend has got another legend on its team, with singer Brandy joining the team in the role of celebrity mentor. Brandy has had ups and downs in her career, but she has found herself on solid ground in spite of it. As of August 2020, Brandy has sold over 40 million records worldwide and has won many awards including a Grammy Award, an American Music Award, and seven Billboard Music Awards. Brandy's unique voice has earned her the nickname, 'The Vocal Bible'. It seems that no one is as excited as John Legend himself to have Brandy on Team Legend. Legend in an interview to Entertainment Tonight on Brandy said, “Her track record as a successful artist speaks for itself and we’ve been loving her and cherishing her as an artist of our culture for such a long time,” Legend said. 

He goes on to add, “What I tell her and what is so resonant to me about her is not only has she had a great career and had lots of hits, but singers love Brandy. They all look up to her and she’s so influential to other singers. For a show like ours where it’s all about mentoring singers, for them to see her when they walk in the room … it’s just a magical moment every time.”

As for Brandy, she says she’s super blessed and excited to be on the show.
