He has been one of the top R&B singers of the last 15 years with six albums and four Grammy nominations. Eric Benét represents passion and commitment to his craft. After personal challenges earlier in his career, the singer recently sat down with the MY Lifestyle Magazine team in New York to discuss his newfound love and outlook for the future.
Many remember that he was once married to superstar Actress Halle Berry. Their divorce in 2005 was all over the tabloids and received extensive news coverage. But through all that, Benét never lost his focus or touch for music. He credits his loved ones with helping him through all the challenges.
“Allow yourself to hurt for a period of time,” he told our magazine. “But while you’re allowing yourself to hurt, make sure you have lots of people who love you and that you love around you.”
Benét has seemingly undergone a rebirth over the last two years. Last year, he married Manuela Testolini, who is singer Prince’s ex wife. Benét and his new love had a daughter together in December. He also launched his own record label, Jordan House Records, and released his first independent album entitled “The One” in June.
At MY Lifestyle Magazine, the mission is to serve our bicultural Latino readers and also honor diversity, making Eric Benét the perfect interview for the latest issue. After all, his fan base is still growing. This soulful singer was nominated for a 2012 Grammy for “Best Traditional R&B Performance” and a Soul Train nomination for “Best Male R&B/Soul Artist.” With all his recent success, it could be that Benét’s best days are just ahead.
The magazine also recently spent time at a vegan cooking demonstration at the Schomberg Center for Research in Black Culture in New York City. Managing Editor Carlos Anaya joined nutritionists and doctors to show the Latino community how to make easy vegan choices. The event, part of the “Vegetariano En 21 Días” campaign by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, was a hit!
