John Legend reiterated that his 2020 Billboard Music Awards performance of “Never Break” was “for Chrissy” in an Instagram post.
“We’ve experienced the highest highs and lowest lows together. Watching you carry our children has been so moving and humbling,” wrote Legend, who praised his wife, Chrissy Teigen’s strength. “What an awesome gift it is to be able to bring life into the world. We’ve experienced the miracle, the power and joy of this gift, and now we’ve deeply felt its inherent fragility.”

The singer also opened up about the single “Never Break” off his 2020 album Bigger Love, and its true meaning. “I wrote this song because I have faith that as long as we walk this earth, we will hold each other’s hands through every tear, through every up and down, through every test,” wrote Legend, noting the promise they made to each other on their wedding day “seven years ago.”
In his emotional post, Legend thanked friends, family, and fans for the “prayers and well wishes, flowers, cards, words of comfort and empathy” and recognized that they are not alone in their pain. “I’m sure Chrissy will have much more to say about this when she’s ready. But just know we’re grateful and we’re sending love to all of you and your families.”
