Eric Benet is a proud father who lets parenthood shine through his writing. The singer recently talked about his new song, ‘Here In My Arms,’ which he wrote especially for six-month-old daughter Lucia.
Eric sings on the track, “The moon up above such a marvel to see, the stars cause a heavenly sky. But none could compare as you drift off to sleep to the glow from the light of your smile. Of all of the loves I have known near and far, the best is right here in my arms.”
“[‘Here In My Arms’] was a melody I would sing to Manuela when Lucia was still in Manuela’s universe. I would sing to her, and when she was born, I would sing it, and I just thought it would be great to put some lyrics to this song. And I thought it would be great if my wife helped me with those lyrics. It’s [a] very soothing, loving and comforting song, and it puts Lucia right to sleep,” Benet tells Yahoo news.
Lucia’s lullaby will be included on Benet’s newest project called The One, which also features his oldest daughter India. Lucia is Eric and Manuela’s first child together.
