John Legend has been spotted at Fresno State’s Bulldog Stadium while cheering for his nephew during a football game between Fresno State and Minnesota Gophers.
The event took place on Saturday 6th and the supporters of both teams could not believe their eyes when they realized the man with the spotted black shirt was indeed the Grammy Award winner singer and songwriter.
However, John Legend wasn’t there to give a performance but to support his nephew Michael Brown-Stephens who is freshman receiver for the Minnesota Gophers.
The “All Of Me” singer and proud uncle even posted a picture with Michael captioned: “Went up to Fresno to check out my nephew’s (@michaelbstephens22) new team @gopherfootball and they won in double overtime. Great game!”
John Legend, whose real name is John Roger Stephens, was born in Springfield, Ohio and is an avid Ohio State fan. According to him, the fact that Michael plays for Minnesota is going to present a dilemma for him when Ohio and Minnesota will face each other on the field. He said: “But we’ll cross that bridge when we get there”.
Michael Brown-Stephens is already a rising star, being one of the most active players of his team which secured a victory against Fresno State in double overtime. His talent was recognized during his high school years as he received offers from many universities around the States including Kentucky and Ohio, ultimately picking Minnesota.
Many Minnesota fans are already hoping John Legend will show up to many of their team’s games.
