John Legend spotlights the critical needs of refugee children

We were so pleased to announce today that Grammy Award winning vocalist, songwriter and musician John Legend is teaming up with the International Rescue Committee as an IRC Voice to raise awareness of the humanitarian needs of refugees — children in particular.

“John Legend’s humanitarian achievements are fast catching up to his extraordinary musical accomplishments,” said George Rupp, the IRC’s president. “We are delighted that John is joining our team as an IRC Voice to spotlight the critical needs of uprooted children and youth.” 
Other IRC Voices include actress Rashida Jones from NBC's “Parks & Recreation” and Disney’s upcoming film “The Muppets,” Latin singer and actor Jencarlos Canela from Telemundo’s “Mi Corazon Insiste,” and actress Sarah Wayne Callies, who stars in the AMC TV series, “The Walking Dead."
