John Legend spoke in a panel with Sara Bareilles at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York Thursday.
An audience member asked Legend if he had any advice for young artists.
Legend said the key is putting in the work.
"Part of it is ... just doing it — continuing to write, continuing to work on your craft, and care about every concert, every tour, making sure it's the best one you've had yet." John Legend
He added that he's inspired by Beyonce.
"I'm so inspired by watching Beyoncé. You can tell she works on that show. She is committed to every move, every step being right. She's been around this long — one, because she's immensely talented, but two, she really cares about her craft and she works on it all the time." John Legend
