Eric Jordan Young - Broadway Actor and Singer on the Importance of Letting the Work Inspire You

During his years in New York City, Eric Jordan Young bounced around from Broadway productions and national tours to regional shows and concerts. According to most performers, he was living the dream.

But he wanted something else, we wanted something more. So Eric branched out into his own endeavors, from a solo recording album to a one-man tribute to Sammy Davis, Jr. Along the way he met some challenges and found out he knew more about the show than he did the business.

And Vegas became the testing ground and base of operations for his own production company, and he found the stories he was truly meant to tell.
