The Deal

Eric Benét

  • Benét: the band that Eric started with his sister, Lisa, and his cousin, George Nash, Jr. Their self-titled 1992 debut sold more than 100,000 copies.
  • True to Myself: his solo debut, which cemented his position on the forefront of soul and featured the single “Let’s Stay Together” (featured in Martin Lawrence’s A Thin Line Between Love and Hate)
  • Best R&B/Soul Album, Male: the Soul Train Music Award Eric was able to tuck into bed next to him shortly after releasing his sophomore album, A Day in the Life
  • “Spend My Life With You:” Benét’s breakout single. Not only did it hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard R&B charts, but it earned him a Grammy nomination and an NAACP Image Award as well.
  • 3: the number of subsequent Grammy nods he’s earned, most recently for 2012’s “Sometimes I Cry”
  • The Real Husbands of Hollywood: where Eric palled around with Kevin Hart and Bobby Brown in 2013

Musiq Soulchild

  • Where Musiq Soulchild got his start: on Philadelphia’s streets, where he beat-boxed, scatted, and sang a cappella
  • His name, in his own words: “‘Musiq’ is the front man and ‘Soulchild’ is the idea behind it. It’s basically me as an artist in this generation, representing the traditions and the legacies of the past soul stars.”
  • Genres he’s been influenced by: R&B, blues, soul, funk, and gospel
  • 11: the number of fingers you’d need to count his Grammy nominations
  • 2: the number of platinum albums he’s released
  • Sunglasses: the accessory he’s rarely seen without
  • His latest: 2013’s 9ine, a duet album with Syleena Johnson

Arena Theatre

At Arena Theatre, nobody sits farther than 60 feet from the show. Most concertgoers who’ve squinted their ways through major concerts at other venues can attest that the in-the-round seating arrangement and revolving stage are causes for celebration. And the stars have noticed. Since the 1970s, the state-of-the-art venue has attracted a long list of legendary performers including Willie Nelson, Tom Jones, and Aretha Franklin. While their golden vocal chords ring through the stellar acoustics, fans sink into comfy seats, savor a flashy light system, and discard their unnecessary opera glasses.
