Singer John Legend will join the ranks of Nelson Mandela and Sir Elton John in receiving the CARE Humanitarian Award for Global Change this month.

CARE, a Non-Profit organization, will honor Legend during their 62nd anniversary celebration, held in Washington, D.C. from June 17-19.

The organization is also acknowledging Legend's Show Me Campaign, which fights economic and spiritual poverty. He began the Campaign after reading "The End of Poverty" by Columbia University professor, Dr. Jeffrey Sachs several years ago.

Melinda Gates and Archbishop Desmond Tutu have also received CARE's Lifetime Achievement Award.

In other news, a snippet of Legend's first single "Green Light" featuring Andre 3000 hit the web last week and a representative for the singer says a video is in the works.
