The spring is here and the summer is just around the corner. It’s time to enjoy the lovely weather and attend a few summer concerts. Soul fans are in for a treat when the Soulful Summer Tour featuring Anthony Hamilton with special guests Eric Benét and Marcus Canty come June 8 as part of Cool Summer Nights at DPAC.
R&B crooner, songwriter and actor Eric Benét has successfully released six albums and was also nominated for a 2012 Grammy® Award for “Best Traditional R&B Performance” for his single “Sometimes I Cry.” He has also been active as an actor and most recently starred in his first lead role in the feature film Trinity Goodheart. Additionally, Eric had a recurring role on the television program For Your Love (1998–2002) and made his film debut alongside Mariah Carey in Glitter (2001).
Marcus Canty is the 21-year-old who won the hearts of America on Fox’s XFactor talent show. In 2009, Canty was chosen over hundreds of high school seniors across the nation by the National Foundation for Advancement In The Arts – YoungArt (which recognizes and supports America’s most talented 15 to 18-year-olds in the visual, literary and performing arts), and was inducted into the organization.
