He has since become a political activist and ambassador for peace, recently publishing his own autobiography War Child which provides horrifying insight into the atrocities of child slavery and the effects of war on third world countries. Emmanuel will use his melodies to take us on a journey through his life and experiences that will captivate and enchant his audience.
