After Kandi warmed up the stage and kicked off the night, R&B singer Eric Benét threw down a smooth performance that had the ladies of the audience dancing in the aisles. I love photographing performers with Benét's charisma and command of the spotlight – it makes my job easy.
This was a really fun set to photograph, as Eric was a great subject. The only real complaint I could voice would be that, as one of the openers, I would have loved a more lush visual treatment for the performance Benét put down. Of course, all the big lights were being saved for the main event – Fantasia Barrino.
Stay tuned for the full set from Fantasia's set, coming up next.
