NASHVILLE + NYC + L.A. + SC
With a pedigree including a Furman University diploma; performances on the world’s most exclusive stages; a hot-selling iTunes EP; a performance contract with The New York Philharmonic Chorus; and a position as the Entertainment Host for a national morning radio show; Erika’s voice sounds at home and in command regardless of the stage. With consistent bicoastal engagements and continuous work throughout the South, Erika continues to expand her growing followers wherever her feet and tweets touch ground. Her work with numerous charitable organizations as board member, spokesperson, keynote speaker, red carpet host, and entertainment headliner has allowed her even more opportunities to use her gifts. It is no small wonder that major labels such as Wrangler, GE, Verizon, Ford, Subaru, Lincoln, Tempur Pedic, Lowe’s, Kohler, Hanes, LG Mobile, Kohl’s, Nationwide, St. John, Universal Music, and MTV have begun to court her.
And, yes – she was Miss South Carolina. Twice!
To secure scholarships for Furman, Erika entered the Miss South Carolina pageant and was crowned Miss South Carolina 2005. She advanced to the Miss America Pageant, where she won the Bernie Wayne overall talent award and placed in the Top–10 securing over 40K dollars in college scholarships in a mere 11 months.
Erika put on the stilettos once again seven years later and was crowned Miss South Carolina USA 2012 and was thrilled to place in the Top–15 at The Miss USA Pageant. Erika is one of only two women in the state of South Carolina to have successfully “crossed over” and won both the Miss America and the Miss Universe state titles in her lifetime.
Erika moved to Nashville, TN in December of 2013 with a job offer from Cumulus Media as Entertainment Correspondent for the nationally syndicated radio program, America’s Morning Show #NashFM.
She’s heard every morning locally in Nashville on 103.3 FM and she’s already been spotted hosting red carpet events like The Country Music Awards, The Billboard Music Awards, The American Music Awards, and CMA Fest with Westwood One’s #RedCarpetRadio. Erika is quickly falling in love with Music City!
