Norfolk born Eddie Holman is perhaps most famous for his classic hit song, “Hey There Lonely Girl.” Holman has been singing since the age of two. Early in his life, his mother recognized his extraordinary talents and got him to study piano and guitar. Holman began performing at an early age. By the tender age of 10, “Little” Eddie stepped onto the stage of the famed Apollo Theater for Amateur Night, and after winning there, he went on to do some Off-Broadway productions, and even the prestigious Carnegie Hall.
Eddie was enrolled in Harlem's prestigious Victoria School Of Music, studying with other gifted youth, and appeared regularly on NBC's "The Children's Hour,” while living in New York.
Before graduating from Cheney State University in Philadelphia with a degree in music, Holman was making the rounds of the Philly sound scene, even recording his first hit record in 1965, "This Can't Be True."
But it was true, and more hits followed-- "Am I A Loser From The Start" (1966), "I Love You" (1969), "Don't Stop Now" (1970), and "Cathy Called" (1970). It was in 1970 that Eddie Holman was certified gold with his version of a song by Ruby and the Romantics, "Hey There Lonely Girl.”
Eddie continues to tour and record, has his own label, Agape Records, and his own publishing company, Schoochiebug Music Publishing.
