John Legend had been waiting for the moment that Democratic nominee Joe Biden pulled ahead of President Trump in the race for Georgia’s 16 electoral votes.

It happened early Friday morning, at around 4:45 a.m. EST, Biden was leading with 2,449,371 votes, or 49.39% of the ballots cast, and Trump with 2,448,454 votes, or 49.37% of ballots cast. 

Following the news, Legend, 41, took to Twitter to share a video of himself singing “Georgia on My Mind” made famous by the late Ray Charles, a native son of The Peach State. 

Dressed in a black-and-white shirt, the EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony) winner is seen belting out the tune, which was written in 1930 by legendary actor/singer Hoagy Carmichael.

Meanwhile, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said Friday that “there will be a recount in Georgia” after vote totals show a razor-thin margin between Trump and Biden in the battleground state.

Raffensperger said the state — which would give Biden the boost he needs to surpass 270 and clear the path to the White House — is “too close to call.”
