Eric Bene`t “The One”

Eric Bene`t Jordan  was born on October 15, 1966 in Mobile Alabama.He is the youngest of five siblings. Eric grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He sang with group called the Gerard in the 1980s. In 1992 Eric his sister and his cousin formed a band called Bene’t, they released a self-titled album in 1992 that sold 100,000 records. Eric’s had some personal problems so his career was put on hold for a while. His father died of cancer. He became a single father of daughter named India  his girlfriend Tami Marie Stauff died on April 29, 1993 from injuries suffered in an automobile accident.Eric was married to Halle Berry from 2001 to 2005. In 2011 he married Princes ex-wife Manuela Testolini who gave birth to a baby girl, Lucia Bella on December 21, 2011. Eric’s career really started to flourish when he was nominated for a Grammy for “Spend My Life With You”, a duet he did with Tamia. This song was one of my favorites in 2000. Eric released his 7th album “The One” on June 5, 2012. This album is honest, classy and smooth. It has a lot of slow songs and has some up tempo songs as well. I really like this album and these are the songs that speak to me, “Gonna Be My Girl”, “That's My Lady”, “Harriett Jones”, “Runnin”, “News For You”, “Here In My Arms”. “I Hope That It's You” has a reggae beat. Eric and his daughter India Bene`t are doing a duet on the song “Muzik (Feat. India Benét)”. This is a beautiful song. Eric really did his thing on this album. I’m going to put this one on my playlist. Listen to some songs from Eric Bene`t “The One” album on Streetwise Radio. You can also listen to Streetwise Radio on iTunes, live365, Athena365 and MyGen365.
