We had the pleasure and opportunity to catch Eric Benet backstage after his show in Atlanta. We had a chance to speak about the inspiration for his latest single, Real Love, the honor of performing for Earth, Wind & Fire at the Soul Train Awards and finding the strength to try love again with a new wife and baby. We hope you enjoy this intimate conversation and be sure to pick up his new album, The One out in stores now!
