About Eric Benèt
The album A Day In the Life has taken Eric Benet from "promising talent" category to full-fledged pop star status. Benet is one of the finest contemporary R&B performers because he keeps his ear tuned to the feel of Classic Soul and Smooth Jazz while avoiding sounding like a retro-act. If he continues to build on the promise of A Day he should have a long and fruitful career ahead of him. Some of his affirmative lyrics touch on spiritual themes.
