Eric Bibb

Eric Bibb is one of the great performers living today. He is a Grammy-nominated blues musician who despite his accomplishments may still be one of the best-kept secrets in music. Eric’s guitar work and lyrics are incredible; however it’s something about his calm demeanor and uplifting spirit that makes him so successful connecting with audiences. Some of his best-known songs include “I Heard the Angels Singing” and “Shingle by Shingle (http://bit.ly/nVTM4n).   Eric grew up in New York City and lived in Sweden for many years. He now lives in a town a few hours outside of London with his partner Sari.

Daily prayer

My daily prayer is about thanking God for my life today. “For my family and friends, for my new home, for my many blessings, for his healing power pouring forth upon me. I claim it now and pray for miracles, please bless this day for me and everybody in our family and circle of friends, Amen.” On any given day, I’ll either say it with gusto or with a degree of heaviness, even resistance. But I’ll say it anyway. I can’t let myself fall into that ungrateful, self-pitying mode. I also make a habit of daily affirmations; prayers that keep me in that space of gratitude. I want to keep that going because it seems incredibly easy to slip into that complaining, dissatisfied, disgruntled person.
