John Legend’s dogs have got married. The 36-year-old star serenaded his pet pooches Puddy and Pippa with his hit All of Me at their nuptials last Wednesday, at which he sprinkled rose petals down the aisle for the pair and even fed them their first piece of wedding cake on their big day.
John’s pets were appropriately dressed for the occasion in suit and bow tie and a bridal gown and they found time to take some snaps with their owner-turned-wedding singer in a photobooth at their mutt marriage.
The singer even officiated the wedding for his and wife Chrissy Teigen’s bulldog and French bulldog, who looked to be thoroughly enjoying their canine ceremony.
Some fans thought the event might be an April Fool’s joke but that was not the case as John in fact put on the dogs’ big day to help promote a new initiative for his charity, The Show Me Campaign, which aims to give impoverished kids a great education.
John is encouraging fans to donate money to the initiative – which is also raising money to rebuild the auditorium at the former South High School in Springfield, Ohio – over the next 14 days, and anyone who does will be put into a prize draw to win a private performance from the star at an event of their choice.
A message on the donation page states John will be available to spend time with guests at the lucky winner’s chosen event as well as perform.
It also states: “A private John Legend concert at your wedding or other event (birthday parties, going away parties, and parties for no special occasion are all welcome!) (sic)”
The star has partnered with Omaze – which offers once-in-a-lifetime experiences which benefit charitable causes – to raise funds for the initiative.
He wrote on Twitter: “I’m so excited to play at your wedding, I filmed my rehearsal. My babies helped too! (sic)”
