YouTube videos of cute boys singing are a dime a dozen, but when Eli Lieb’s videos rack up more than seven millions views, you suspect he may be something beyond cute.
The inner beauty of happiness
Yes, he is pretty on the outside, but his voice is what draws you inside to a heart and soul that set this hot young indie singer / songwriter apart from similar musicians on the road to fame. When Eli Lieb says he doesn’t care about fame, he does not sound insincere. He cares about his personal happiness.
The source of his easy-going personality is his serious practice of TM – the Transcendental Meditation technique.
Success without breakneck ambition
Lieb left New York City after a decade of putting up with what he calls the chaos and distractions of the city. He returned to the great plains of the American Midwest where his parents had raised him in a rural Iowa town of less than ten thousand people. Fairfield, Iowa is also the home of the world’s largest TM training facility, which had attracted his parents to that community. They taught their sons the art and value of meditation.
“My practice of Transcendental Meditation is the main thing in my life. My parents started TM in the 70s. They wanted to raise me and my brother in a community of the like-minded,” Lieb says. “In high school, we meditated twice a day. As I got older and became my own person, I sought out and embraced meditation on my own.”
