LOS ANGELES – Actress Halle Berry plans to marry musician Eric Benet, according to the television show ”Entertainment Tonight.”

Berry, 31, and Benet will wed next year, the TV magazine reported. A spokesman for the actress did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment Tuesday.

Benet’s first album, ”True to Myself,” was released in 1996 and he has had such hits as ”Spend My Life With You.”
