Five time Grammy Award winner John Legend headlined the Soul of Africa Charity Concert last night at Independence Square in Accra, Ghana. Thousands of people attended the outdoor concert, which also featured international reggae star, Luciano as well as several other reggae and hip life artists. The purpose of the concert was to raise awareness and aid for the Northern region of Ghana, which was devastated by floods last month, killing over 100 people and leaving thousands displaced. Legend’s hour long performance was his first ever in Ghana. He performed several tracks off of his latest album, Once Again, including “Save Room,” “P.D.A., (We Just Don’t Care),” and “Another Again.” He also revisited songs from his debut album, Get Lifted, including “Ordinary People,” “Get Lifted,” and “Used to Love You.” The 12-hour concert was originally scheduled for Saturday, October 27, but was postponed after a severe thunderstorm hit Accra.
