Eric Roberson is a singer, songwriter and producer from Rahway, New Jersey. He is sometimes referred to simply as Erro, the name which he later used as part of his label Blue Erro Soul. His first single, “The Moon”, was released through Warner Bros. Records in 1994 and recorded an album for that label which remains unreleased.
He subsequently returned to Howard University to complete his studies in Musical Theatre. After performing in a number of musicals and plays, he landed a songwriting deal through the EMI label, and went on to collaborate with Philadelphia-based artists such as Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild, and most extensively, DJ Jazzy Jeff.
Roberson was nominated for two Grammys in the Best Urban/Alternative Performance category. He was nominated for two songs from his 2009 album Music Fan First- “A Tale of Two” in 2010 and “Still” in the same category a year later.
Roberson’s “I Have A Song” was chosen to be the fundraising single, produced by Jak Beula and released in February 2016, to enable the permanent installation of the first dedicated Commonwealth war memorial in the UK to African and Caribbean service men and women of both World Wars.

In 2004, Columbia/SME Records picked up Skyblaze Recordings for worldwide distribution and rereleased the album with additional tracks. She co-wrote and co-produced the entire album, which is a mixture of neo-soul, trip hop, lieder, and jazz. She also toured North America with the band Spearhead.

This past Saturday evening, I was excited to watch the new Richard Pryor documentary, “Omit the Logic,” on Showtime. Pryor is easily tied with George Carlin as the greatest comedian of all time. On this, there can be no argument, lest we do battle in the streets. But I digress.
Seeing Pryor on the screen is always a delight. I enjoyed the early appearances that I had previously never seen, the interviews with Pryor’s peers, particularly Paul Mooney, Robin Williams, and Bob Newhart, and the homage to Pryor’s amazing performance in “Lady Sings the Blues.”
Yet there as something about the tone that kept bothering me. There seemed to be this underlying theme of “this guy was so great, too bad he fucked it all up.” As if to drive the point home, Pryor’s wives were listed with subtitles such as “Wife 2” and “Wife 4 & 7,” and there were copious tales of drug use and the self-immolation that nearly killed him.
Jay Z & his wife Beyonce threw a ginormous celebration to honor the first birthday of their baby, Blue Ivy, according to Radar Online. The Billboard chart-making child had quite an elaborate party held by her parents to celebrate her January 7th birth, and the gossip site revealed that the b-day blowout reportedly cost $200,000! How is that possible? Babies don’t even know what’s going on! Well, Jayonce managed to make it happen.
The party was thrown with a princess theme, adorned with pink and white roses that cost close to $100,000. Add to that accoutrements like a $2,000 cake and $30,000 in party favors, and it’s clear how the birthday costs racked up. The icing on the prohibitively expensive cake was a Barbie doll for BIC, laced in diamonds, with a value of $80,000. It’s no surprise that Jay and Bey spent that kind of cheddar on their firstborn: Jay-Z reportedly leased a nursery at the newly built Barclays Center for a whopping $1 million. Our absurd forecast of Blue Ivy’s first five years is starting to look frighteningly accurate.
