John Legend's award winning mp3 music "Ordinary People" was one other songs that push the singer to higher heights after winning the Grammy award for the "Best New Artist" in 2005, an award that no artist can win more than one in their entire career.

JOHN LEGEND: “Ordinary People” is a song I wrote with will.i.am in a session for the Black Eyed Peas. We were coming up with hooks for them to rap around. And when I wrote that chorus, I thought, “Oh, I really like this. I’m gonna keep this for myself.” So I kept the chorus and went off and wrote the song based on that original chorus that we started working on. And that song sort of started the momentum that led me to the Grammys that year.

“I remember well when the nominations were announced, because I was there. I went to that very early morning press event they used to have in Los Angeles. I got eight nominations, including Best New Artist. Me, Mariah [Carey] and Kanye [West] all got eight nominations that year.

“Songs will always matter. Songs are the core of what we do as musicians. They are the core of what identifies us.”

– John Legend

“I felt I had a good chance at winning Best New Artist. The fact that I was nominated eight times made me feel I had a decent shot at it. But you never know. As it turned out, that day I won three awards and lost five. In addition to Best New Artist, I won for Best R&B Album and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance.

“Winning Best New Artist, though, was the best of all to win, because that’s the one you can never win again. You have the chance to win any of the other ones later in your career. But you can only win Best New Artist once. I think it’s the most important one that I’ve gotten so far.
