Live From Sour Apple Ep-17 Erica Terry

Have you ever met someone with a literal addiction to singing? An individual who randomly sings morning, noon, and night? Chicago native, Erica Terry, definitely fits that profile. The 19- year-old songstress, has been entertaining audiences since her toddler days. From churches to theaters, she has openly shared her gift with an array of people; yet, singing has never felt like a chore for the budding artist. Instead, she refers to it as a place of comfort. It is both a stress reliever and a gift of entertainment wrapped in one. A saying near and dear to Erica's heart is "If you love what you do, you'll never have to work a day in your life." Therefore, every note she sings and every ear she pleases is purely for the love of the art. 
Currently Erica is a member of LBC Gospel Choir and her church's youth choir. She has also won quite a few awards for her musical ability. In 2005 she was awarded first place from the "Illinois Beta Convention- Talent Competition." In 2009 she won first place for University of Missouri- Columbia "Take the Stage" competition, and she ranked Top 15 in Mizzou Idol. With great talent, comes great inspiration. Her musical inspiration stems from both gospel and R&B singers. Her three favorite singers at the moment are Jennifer HudsonLuther Vandross (House Is Not a Home live performance) and Daryl Coley (When Sunday Comes). Two words that sum up these singers' talents are "Pure Delight."
