Eric Benet Teams Up with Ailee for a Remake of “Almost Paradise” from American Classic “Footloose”


Singer Ailee has been featured in a duet with American singer-songwriter Eric Benet. In Eric Benet’s remake album that was released in Japan on May 16, Ailee is featured in the song “Almost Paradise,” originally from the soundtrack of the 1984 classic “Footloose,” sung by Mike Reno and Ann Wilson. The duet was also released in Korea on May 16 in the form of a single.
