You're bright and sexy, and you have a nice sense of humor. Nearly every aspect of your life is going along just fine -- job, apartment, friends, etc. There's just one thing missing -- someone to share it all with. Why are you flying solo while so many others are marching off in pairs? Most of us have a timeline in which we expect or want to be married with a family. To be single and a woman is not as big of a stigma as it was in years past. But that dreaded six-letter-word can still weigh on one’s mind.

Are today's society's father's all horrible, dead beats that have no passion to build healthy relationships with their children or are they completely misguided and misunderstood?

Artist Review: Eric Benet
R&B Crooner, songwriter and actor Eric Benét has successfully released five albums and is releasing his sixth album entitled The One on June 5th, 2012. Very appropriately named, Benét’s new album The One marks a moment of positive transition in his life and lyrically speaks to the many new beginnings developing in his career and family. The One will also be the first album released on Benét’s newly formed record label Jordan House Records, which he created in partnership with EMI.
“Real Love” (available on iTunes) is the first single off Benét’s new album The One and was the #1 added song to Urban AC when shipped to radio in October 2011 and is currently #5 on the Urban AC chart and climbing. This new single is a taste of only one-half of what to expect on Benét’s new album, which he describes as a “very contemporary approach to old-school songwriting integrity” with Benet’s signature mid-70s soul groove, but modernized with a bit of funk, hip-hop swagger and feel. On the new album, there are a variety of instruments from strings to horns plus featured artists, a confirmed duet with his first daughter India and even a lullaby at the end of the album dedicated to his new baby girl Lucia Bella.
Eric Benét was also nominated for a 2012 Grammy Award for “Best Traditional R&B Performance” for his single “Sometimes I Cry”. CeeLo Green’s “Fool For You” feat Melanie Fiona won the category. Additionally, Benét was nominated for a 2011 Soul Train Award for “Best Male R&B/Soul Artist” and also performed during the award show’s tribute to Earth, Wind & Fire, which aired November 27th on BET.
In addition to a new album, single & record label, Eric Benét also has a new marriage and baby girl. Eric married Manuela Testolini on July 31st, 2011 in Newport Beach, CA and the newlyweds had their first baby together on December 20th, 2011, naming her Lucia Bella and weighing 6 lbs 5 oz. Previously, Eric was married to actress Halle Berry from 2001 – 2005 and has one daughter named India from a prior relationship with his longtime girlfriend Tami Marie Stauff, who tragically died in a car accident leaving Eric as a single father to their daughter at age 1. India is now 21 years old, attending USC and very musically gifted. Testolini also familiar with being in a Hollywood marriage was married to Prince prior to Benét.

Music World Gospel recording artist Amber Bullock, soared to the top of the gospel music charts after capturing the hearts of millions as she topped a talented field of singers to become the 2011, Season 4 winner of BET’s Sunday Best, the #1 rated weekly gospel music competition show. Her debut CD project, Thank You, was released in December, 2011, on Mathew Knowles’ Music World Gospel label. The EP entered at #1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart. Thank You featured the Top 10 Billboard hit, “Thank You Lord,” a rendition of Walter Hawkins’ anthem as well as other contemporary classic songs.
Bullock, the St. Louis native and single mother of three-year old Amya, is building a diverse fan base with her signature jazz-infused and neo-soul inspired style. Her unique approach to gospel and inspirational music is front and center on her sophomore CD project, So In Love, which will be available in stores and online everywhere on July 10, 2012.
So In Love is produced by PJ Morton for 2PM Music. Bullock describes their musical partnership as a “match made in heaven.” The result is ten songs of feel-good inspirational music that ranges in style from neo-soul, to jazz, to contemporary gospel, to reggae, with even a little country thrown in. The songs on the CD highlight Bullock’s incredible vocal range and her unique singing style.
“I love music, so I don’t want to just give my listeners the same type of music that’s already out there,” says Bullock. “I want to give them fresh, memorable songs that they are still humming long after the song has finished playing, the kind of songs you keep on repeat.” On her new CD, she does just that.
Bullock wrote her first single, “Lord You’ve Been So Good” with a friend, when she was in college. The song was updated for this CD project with the help of PJ Morton. The upbeat, neo-soul style song features a driving horn section and shows off Bullock’s wide range and effortless runs. “Done For Me,” was also written by Bullock, with Shaun Martin, Greg Brown and Kirk Franklin, who is featured on this song. It has a catchy tune and a powerful message about God’s unconditional love. Bullock goes reggae in “I’m So In Love with You,” which was penned by PJ Morton. “Second Chances,” is a contemporary gospel song that Bullock describes as “dramatic” with instrumentation that features strings and an organ. The song reminds the listener that God’s love and forgiveness are great gifts to us. “Changed,” written by PJ Morton and featuring Isaac Carree, has a contemporary gospel style and a memorable hook. “My daughter sings along with this song every time she hears it,” says Bullock.
The R&B style “Yes,” starts with drums and keeps on pumping energy. The song, written by PJ Morton, is one of Bullock’s favorite on the CD because of both the catch tune and the message. “Yes is a powerful word,” she says. Written by Juante Hall and Jonathan Dunn, “Nobody Else” has jazzy undertones and a message about going to a secret place to meet only with God. “Take it Back,” written by Josiah Martin, reminds us that everything we do or have comes from God. That message is delivered in a pop style song with techno-rock undertones. “Ruler” is a contemporary praise and worship song that Bullock describes as “a little bit country.” Bullock continues, “My most powerful worship experience is when I’m focused on how powerful and loving God is, and how He keeps blessing me, even when I don’t deserve it.” The last song on the CD, “Same God,” was written by Bullock and Shaun Martin. It’s a simple but powerful worship song that acknowledges the faithfulness of God.
