Allen and Cindy
Campaign: John Legend
Hometown: Raleigh, NC
EXPERIENCE DATE: October 2015
HERE’S HOW IT ALL WENT DOWN:
Allen and Cindy got the surprise of a lifetime when we told them we booked their wedding entertainment… and it’s JOHN LEGEND. John actually flew to North Carolina to perform at this couple’s celebration and he helped make it truly legendary. Watch the video for more!
When we first heard ‘All of Me,’ of course with the rest of the world, we said, ‘That’s gonna be the song we have at our wedding.’

FUN FACTS ABOUT ALLEN & CINDY
Meet Allen and Cindy! Before getting married, they’d been together for about 11 years. They were already in the process of planning their wedding—AND they already wanted John Legend’s “All of Me” to be their wedding song—when they found out that their donation to The Show Me Campaign scored them a wedding singer they’ll never forget!
WHO THEY HELPED
The Show Me Campaign, launched in 2007 by Grammy-award winning artist John Legend, works to break the cycle of poverty by supporting programs that help to provide every child with a quality education, spreading awareness about the issues, and inspiring citizens to take action. Through programs such as Teach for America, Teach for All, Harlem Village Academies and New Profit, the Show Me Campaign works to elevate and celebrate teachers, the single most important factor for student achievement in our schools. The campaign also works to end the school-to-prison pipeline and to address systemic issues in our criminal justice system that disproportionately impact the poor, minorities and disadvantaged. Together, these dual strategies aim to give every single child the opportunity to not just survive, but to thrive.
