Eric Benét is a contemporary R&B and neo-soul singer-songwriter and actor, who has received a total of four Grammy nominations to date for his musical work.
As a teenager, he performed in a family vocal group (appropriately named Benét) with his sister and cousin. The group signed with EMI 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 him on the map. The song went to number one on the Billboard R&B chart, 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 platinum and earned 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 album.
After he released his third album Hurricane, Benét recorded of Love & Life, which 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 2012. After an all-covers set recorded for the Japanese market, Benét released a self-titled album in 2016.
Benét started his acting career after he landed a recurring role on WB's For Your Love. He went on to make his feature film debut in Mariah Carey's flashy showbiz drama Glitter.
He had a recurring role on the MTV scripted show Kaya where he plays a music producer and appeared on Half & Half, in which he portrayed Reece Wilcox in 2005.
In Fall of 2013, Eric Benét appeared on the second season of BET's hit television show, The Real Husbands of Hollywood.
