John Legend says winning an Academy Award for “Glory” not only has changed his life, but also has given him a new aspiration — to join the “EGOT” club, a small group of entertainers who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award. 

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the crooner, who has nine Grammys to go along with his Oscar, reflected on his chances of winning an Emmy and Tony.

“I have a TV and film production company,” he revealed while at SXSW in Austin, Texas. “Hopefully one day we’ll get an Emmy and maybe if I write some Broadway music, I’ll get a Tony, but we’ll see. I’ll take it one day at a time and one year at a time, and just focus on doing projects that really excite me and interest me.”

One project that Legend is really excited about is his Love in the Future follow-up.

“It’s happening,” he said of a new album. “I’m just about to start now. I don’t know exactly who I’m gonna work with yet, but as soon as I get back from a week off, which is about to happen…, I’m gonna start writing new songs.”
