My name is Eric Lamart Holland II and I have been singing ever since I was ten years old. I graduated from Tallwood High School with an Advance Diploma. I went to Tidewater Community College for a while but stopped to work two jobs. I am currently working at Dunkin Donuts and Rite Aid. The thing that I really want to do in life is to pursue my dreams in singing, if I could accomplish my goals by singing it would definitely help me and my family.
Since I was ten years old I sung old Motown songs my mom used to play on the radio and since then I trained myself how to sing by trying to sing the words exactly how the artist sang it. I have always been inspired by Marvin Gaye and Sam Cooke and all of the other Motown singers, but in today’s music I have been inspired by Chris Brown, Trey Songz and Usher. I have never sung in Church or took vocal lessons, I just sang on the streets around my neighborhood. I was told I sounded so good that people that I didn’t even know would come to me and ask me to sing for them. Soon I found myself singing in school, on the bus, on the streets and even now at my job. I really do not have many achievements, but if I could pursue my goals in singing that would really be one of the greatest achievements ever.
