Eric Stanley has come a long way since he first picked up a violin. He’s gained millions of views with his covers of Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” and  Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again.” Now, he can be seen on ESPN’s First Take, and opening for acts like B.o.B. and J. Cole. These artists inspired Stanley to be himself and now he wants to do the same for other young kids as well. “I’m able to reach more and more individuals who are seeking information,” said Stanley. “When people see me play, they get inspired.”
