Huffington Post: Pop Star Investor -- VC Turns Down 3 Record Deals to Help Save the World

What do Grammy-winning singer-songwriter John Legend and independent hop-hop artist Hoodie Allen have in common?

Besides being alumni of the University of Pennsylvania, they are both defectors from the corporate world, with the former leaving Boston Consulting Group in favor of a career in music, and the latter from Google.

While few can claim to rival Legend and Allen's daring career changes, fellow Penn alumnus Andrew Chung has a rare - and somewhat antithetical - story. The self-taught pop singer turned down multiple backing offers from record companies and artists in order to pursue life as a venture capital partner in Silicon Valley.
