83 Degrees: On A Mission: Tampa’s Eric Darius Hits All The Right Notes
It is fourth period at Progress Village Middle Magnet in Tampa. The gymnasium quickly fills with the sounds of more than half of the school's 780 students and faculty members filing in.
They are there to see a performance by Tampa-based musician Eric Darius, but most have no idea what to expect.
The gathering erupts into cheers as soon as the music starts. The 28-year-old saxophonist emerges from behind the stage's heavy red curtain and instantaneously enthralls the crowd with his seat-grooving rendition of Usher's Billboard Top 10 hit "DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love."
