In an interview with Variety, Legend admitted that it was, for a long time, a huge goal for him to become successful as a musician, perform around the world, and sell a lot of albums, and he managed to do it all.

He later gushed over his wife, Chrissy Teigen, 32, crediting her as his No. 1 supporter after reaching the major milestone.

The Ordinary People singer became the first black man to earn the coveted EGOT - that is, to win all four types of awards: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony - status on Sunday at the Creative Arts Emmys.

This means Legend now has an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award to his name, all of which can be used both for bragging rights and blunt weapons in the case of an intruder. He has won an Oscar for Best Original Song for his song "Glory", which featured in the 2014 film Selma.

Legend, who played Jesus in the concert version of Jesus Christ Superstar but won his Emmy as a co-producer of the show, is also gunning for an acting Emmy later this month.

She captioned the video, "And I say hey, what a wonderful kind of day", referencing a popular internet joke that claims Legend looks like the animated TV aardvark, Arthur. Legend is also the first black man to achieve an EGOT in all competitive categories, as there are those secondary EGOT citizens who have honorary awards; nobodies like Babs Streisand, Liza Minnelli, Quincy Jones, James Earl Jones, and Harry Belafonte. That year, composer Robert Lopez, 43, completed his EGOT quest.

On Sunday, after the win, Legend took to Instagram to acknowledge the historic milestone.

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice never did a song with Common. The Creative Arts Emmy Awards honor excellence in Television technical categories such as makeup, casting direction, costume design, editing and cinematography. We'll have to wait till September 17 when the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards air on NBC to see if he wins over Darren Criss's dead body.
