Talent & Vocal Entertainment
|Eric L. Watts has been entertaining
audiences with song for 45 years. His singing career began
at the age of 10 as a member of the Taylors (S.C.) First Baptist
Church Youth Choir for two years, followed by one year in the
Northwood Middle School Chorus in 8th grade. At Irmo (S.C.)
High School, Eric was a member of the Chorus and Glee Club for
one year and of the Concert Choir and elite ensemble Irmo Singers
for three years each.
He was in five school musicals, including
playing the parts of Mr. MacAfee in Bye Bye Birdie and
Cornelius Hackl in Hello, Dolly!, and was selected by
audition for the South Carolina All-State Chorus for two years
and the South Carolina All-State Honors Choir for one.

After high school, Eric performed with the University of South
Carolina's pop ensemble Carolina Alive! under the direction
of Dr. Richard Conant for a year and half, as well as singing
with the St. Jude Metropolitan Community Church Choir for several
years as both a chorus member and frequent soloist. After
moving to Georgia in 1988, Eric was selected by audition for
one of Atlanta's premier all-male community choruses in 1993,
with whom he performed for 15 years on some of the most prestigious
stages across the city, state and country, including the Fabulous
Fox Theatre, Atlanta Civic Center and Rialto Theatre in Atlanta;
venues in Macon, Savannah and Augusta, Georgia; and concert
halls in Tampa and Miami, Florida; and San Jose, California.
When not performing as a member of a chorus, Eric enjoys singing
karaoke both for fun and in competition. He has competed
in several local karaoke contests and has been named a finalist
or semifinalist in a number of state and regional competitions.
Eric L. Watts would be pleased to entertain your audience
with his repertoire of American standards, Broadway classics
and pop hits from the '60s, '70s and '80s. Please send
him an email to inquire about availability and compensation
for a one-hour performance.
Logistics: To perform for your residents, Eric will
bring a portable karaoke system, including a microphone, a built-in
amplifier and two freestanding speakers, and his inventory of
karaoke CDs. He will need a performance area about 15
feet wide, a table, a stool or chair, access to one electrical
outlet and about 10 minutes to set up the equipment before his
scheduled performance, and another 10 minutes to break down
the equipment afterwards.
