John Legend sings “Never Break” for his wife Chrissy Teigen at the Billboard Music Awards (Oct. 14, 2020)

*John Legend has had some moving performances of his material at too many award shows to count, but none like the one Wednesday night at the Billboard Music Awards.

When he opened with the whisper, “This is for Chrissy,” you knew you were about to need some tissue. Legend poured his whole heart into “Never Break,” which he dedicated to his wife Chrissy Teigen less than two weeks after they announced the loss of their pregnancy.

Eyes pooled with tears, Legend willed his way through such lyrics as, “We will never break/ Built on a foundation/ Strong enough to stay/ We will never break,” and, “As the water rises/ And the mountains shake/ Our love will remain.”
