    John Legend sell his music catalog

    Interesting. it's always been much older stars [[or their estates) doing it

    John Legend is in very good company with his money moves.
    The singer, songwriter and producer is the latest star to sell his music catalog.
    Like some of pop musicís greatest such as Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, Tina Turner and Stevie Nicks, Legend has cashed in by selling the rights to his catalogs of songs and recording royalties.

    According to a public filing back in September, cited by Bloomberg, the 12-time Grammy Award-winning crooner sold both the copyrights to and royalties from music he wrote from late 2004 through early last year.
    The deal includes his chart-topping pop hit ďAll of Me.Ē
    BMG Rights Management, the international music company which has worked with the artist since acquiring his music publisher, Cherry Lane Music Publishing Co., in 2010, bought the rights, in partnership with the private equity firm KKR & Co.
    Financial terms were not disclosed...........

    John Legend is the latest [[and youngest) music superstar to sell entire music catalog, royalties [[msn.com)

    Wow! Fair play to John Legend. I guess he can enjoy his money now, rather than waiting 30 years.
