Outside of Kaya, Eric is most notably known as a singer-songwriter. "Spend My Life With You," his duet with R&B artist Tamia, earned a Grammy nomination for best R&B performance by a duo or group in 2000. That same year he won a Soul Train Music Award for best male R&B/soul album for A Day in the Life.
Raised in Milwaukee, Eric's father instilled in him an appreciation for music. As a teenager, he formed the vocal group Benét with his sister and cousin and they released a self-titled album in 1992. His solo debut, True to Myself, was released in 1996.
But Eric doesn't just excel at music, he has also set his artistic sights on acting, having a recurring role on the TV series For Your Love. He made his film debut in Glitter, starring Mariah Carey. He's excited to mix his love for music and acting into his role as T Davis on Kaya.
