John Legend is a bonafide star. And he has the Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony awards to prove it. In a one on one sit down with Urban One Chairperson Cathy Hughes, the prolific singer talks about his Outstanding Actor in a Television, Movie, Limited Series or Dramatic Special nomination for Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert ahead of the 50th NAACP Image Awards. Here’s an exclusive look at part two of their sit down.

Legend also discusses his new single, Preach, a response to a myriad of social issues affecting marginalized communities. The Dominique DeLeon-directed video opens with the singer lying awake in bed beside wife Chrissy Teigen before taking a harrowing look at a handful of issues taking root in America: School shootings, children being separated from parents at the border, law enforcement’s aggressive tactics toward African-Americans during traffic stops and more. Watch below.

The 50th NAACP Image Awards air live on TV One tonight at 9/8C.
