NBC’s newest songwriting competition series, Songland winner Tebby has her song “We Need Love” recorded and released by John Legend.
To kick off the series, John Legend, was joined by a panel of award winning producers-mentors to listen to four original songs and provide on the spot feedback in regards to lyrics, arrangements, beats, melody and story. Legend then narrowed the field to three songwriters, who went into the studio with one of the producer-mentors to perfect their songs for Legend. In the end, Legend chose Tebby’s “We Need Love,” as the winner and released the song for a global audience.
“Making the decision to go after what you want and live an unconventional life can be a scary thing so I try to celebrate every step. It feels amazing to be on NBC’s “Songland” with other talented artists and songwriters and then to write a song that John Legend records is a dream come true! From the first time I performed internationally or the first time my music video was played on television, these were all moments where I kind of paused, smiled and thought, this is good! This win on “Songland” has given me the boost of energy to keep going as a songwriter and also as an artist!”
