Bio

Eric Benét is a contemporary R&B singer with mild hip-hop and strong adult contemporary influences. As a teenager, he performed in a family vocal group (appropriately named Benét) with his sister and cousin. The group signed with Capitol Records and released an eponymous album in 1992 that largely went unnoticed. Eric blazed his own trail as a solo artist shortly afterward, signing to Warner Bros. and releasing his debut album, True to Myself, in the fall of 1996. A Day in the Life followed in 1999; its first single, a cover of Toto's "Georgy Porgy," was a moderate radio hit, but it was the album's second single, "Spend My Life with You" (featuring Tamia), that helped put Eric Benét on the map. "Spend My Life with You" went to number one on the R&B charts, was certified gold, and received a nomination for the 2000 Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group. Benét's popularity was on the rise, and A Day in the Life went on to earn a Soul Train Music Award for Best R&B/Soul Album, Male. During this time, Benét headed into the studio to work on Earth, Wind & Fire's 30th anniversary CD. He also struck up a romance with actress Halle Berry, whom he married in 2001. Perhaps inspired by his wife, Benét caught the acting bug and landed a recurring role on WB's For Your Love before making his feature film debut in Mariah Carey's flashy showbiz drama Glitter in 2001. Berry and Benét separated in 2004, a year before the singer released his third album, Hurricane. Benét then returned home to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for the recording of Love & Life, which arrived in September 2008 and garnered two additional Grammy nominations. Two years later, Benét delivered Lost in Time, a tribute to the classic smooth soul sounds of the '70s. The One, a relatively younger-sounding set with cameos from Lil Wayne and Shaggy, followed in June 2012. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
