December 7, 2011 – I attended another incredible performance from Eric Benet at V101.5’s An Intimate Night with Eric Benet in Jacksonville, FL. Eric didn’t disappoint as he smoothly glided through each song. He performed hits songs Sometimes I Cry, Chocolate Legs and You’re the Only One. These songs were #1 for 5-6 weeks! I also got a chance to hear Eric perform his new single, “Real Love.” He sang it flawlessly and was enjoyed very much by all who listened! This is the first song from Eric’s upcoming CD “The One”, to be released in the spring of 2012. Eric explained that the title of his new CD “The One” is so named because it is the first CD from his own new label, Jordan House Records and with EMI Records. Eric also performed hits from back in the day, including “Spend My Life” and we also grooved to “Georgy Porgy.”
After his amazing performance, Eric sat down for a Q & A session and some requests. He was impressed with his first request to sing a song from his first album with his sister Lisa, Only Wanna Be With You. After which he answered questions about who his mentor has been, on the business side, through the years. Eric reported that there was no one person but many and that you really need to be dedicated to stay in the music business these days. What would you be doing if you were not in the music business? Eric said that he would probably be a screen writer. Eric wants to also do more acting. Eric’s answers to the questions were very open and honest. He feels that this is conveyed to his audience. He also puts personal experiences and situations into his music because he feels his listeners can feel this.
Eric left us with pictures that we got to take with him and more amazing memories of An Intimate Night with Eric Benet!
