Fans can bid on the opportunity to own a percentage of Eric Benet's first two albums and share in the royalties.

In 1994, Benet signed with Warner Bros. Records, releasing his solo debut album, True to Myself, in 1996. Individual songs from the album were successful, including the top-ten R&B hit "Spiritual Thang" and "Let's Stay Together".

His next album, A Day in the Life, was released in 1999. Its first single, "Georgy Porgy (featuring Faith Evans)" received significant airplay, while the second single, "Spend My Life With You (featuring Tamia)", became a smash hit. "Spend My Life With You" rose to number one on the American R&B charts, was certified gold, and nominated for a 2000 Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group.
