A soft-going, talented guy that can play the cello and the piano. A cutie with glasses with a voice that can easily croon you to sleep. Search no further – Eric Nam is the man!
Born and raised in Atlanta, the United States, Eric Nam was a normal guy just like the rest of us, with an exceptional voice. In his hometown, Eric was part of the Atlanta Boy Choir and even released his own solo CD for his senior project. He used his talent to his advantage, posting videos on YouTube making covers of popular K-Pop songs.
In high school, Eric tried out for SM Entertainment but failed to succeed. Afterwards, he was contacted by JYP Entertainment but because he wished to focus on studies, rejected the offer to audition. Studying in Boston College, he was then approached by MBC, who scouted him and flew him to Korea as a contestant of ‘Birth of a Great Star 2.’
After making it to the Top 5 on the talent-scouting show, Eric flew back to the U.S and participated on ‘Kollaboration Boston 2.’ He started making more covers, and on December 14th, 2012, B2M Entertainment confirmed his joining of the company.
Eric has gone a long way as an artist but this is only the beginning of his musical career. He released ‘Cloud 9,’ his debut mini-album, on January 23rd, 2013, with the title song ‘Heaven’s Door.’
Check out the MV for ‘Heaven’s Door’ below, as well as some of his amazing covers!
