Is Emmanuel in a Relationship?

From the look of Emmanuel’s social media, there doesn’t seem to be a love interest in sight.

But between working as a part-time motivational speaker and singing perhaps he doesn’t have the time.

Already Emmanuel has over 16,000 followers on Instagram and a further 1,500 on Twitter.

What Did he Sing on The Voice?

Emmanuel sang ‘Hallelujah’ by Leonard Cohen for his blind audition.

Judge, Jennifer Hudson was the first judge to turn her chair during his performance and said that it was her favourite song.

All four of the judges turned their chairs for Emmanuel and got his praises well and truly sung by every single one of them.

In the end, Emmanuel chose to go onto Team Will.
