    Eric Lige has garnered praise for his resounding baritone/tenor singing voice. "He delivers with great passion and conviction." This has become a common phrase that has been reiterated by many of his listeners such as Chris Ward, Founder of ARC Productions near Grand Rapids, Michigan. It was Ward who gave this budding singer his musical start while he was fresh out of high school.

    Lige was born on the fifth day of January in Birmingham, Alabama in1975 and moved to Lake Charles, Louisiana with his family at the age of seven. Because he was such a shy young man he hardly participated in any extracurricular activities. However, his upbringing exposed him to various cultures and settings, one of which is the church - a pillar part of the African American community in the South. There were times during his childhood where he felt like his family was the sole supporter of their local church because in his young mind it seemed as if they lived there night and day!  As grueling as it was for him to get up early and go to bed late, he was always drawn in by the spontaneous sounds of rhythmic beats and strong voices that could be heard penetrating the thin walls of the often unstable storefront foundations his church occupied.  It was then and there that Eric found his passion. It was there that he began to lay down the foundation for the songs that he sings and writes today. Layered within that musical basis was his exposure to his Grandmother’s rhythm and blues (B. B. King, Temptations, Motown), to his predominantly white high school’s alternative rock and oldies (Stone Temple Pilots, The Cranberries, Goo Goo Dolls), and to classical and jazz (Mozart, Mendelssohn, Miles Davis), discovered during his college years. Some of his favorite music artists include India Arie, Aretha Franklin, Tim Hughes, Israel Houghton, Dave Coz, John Legend, Calvin Nowell and anyone from the Winans family.

    In 1993, Mr. Lige joined a national touring music and drama production. The production landed him in towns he had never heard of, such as Altoona, Pennsylvania; Gobles, Michigan and Kokomo, Indiana. He was honored that those audiences allowed him to get his feet wet and find his footing and because of that, he has been singing and writing ever since. This is a personal triumph to Mr. Lige, who did not utter a single note on stage until the age of 17 due to severe stage fright.

    The responses of those audiences must have been a sure sign that Eric Lige was on a musical roll. His talents have landed him in 41 of the 50 States, Europe, Canada, Central America and the West Indies. His passion for music has also taken him – a small town singer – to big time performances such as Copley’s Symphony Hall with the San Dieogo Symphony (December 2007), The National Cathedral (Spring 2000) and before an audience at Madison Square Garden (Summer 2002) while touring with a band called Legacy.

    As a songwriter, voice actor and vocalist, other credits include: 2012 release of "Sole Desire", 2010 release of "Peace on Earth", and 2009 "Surrender" recording project.  In November 2012, Eric Lige was commissioned to write the theme song to "One Great Hour of Sharing" to raise awareness of the hunger and health plight around the world.
     
    Eric Lige currently lives in San Diego, California and is a Programming Arts Director at Ethnos Community Church.
