HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUM. It’s the original girl in my life @dorissmithtali birthday. Mum what can I honestly say. You have been selfless in putting your dreams aside all these years so that I can love out mine. From now onwards you can be selfish because you more than deserve it. I am determined by the grace of God and as God allows me to make you proud and enjoy your grandchildren one day. You are simply the best. We all need mothers like you
Where is Emmanuel From?
Emmanuel grew up in Ghana, Africa.
When he was eight years old his mother moved to the UK to create a better life for him and his sister.
He later joined his mother when he was 13 years old and now lives in Lewisham, south London.
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.

When times gets tough remember that you could have been dead but you are still here for a reason. Having lots of money is not success rather having lots of love makes you more richer than the wealthiest man with no love. Having wealth and love is what we attain to have. God is Love ??
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.
Is Emmanuel Religious?
Yes, Emmanuel is a Christian.
His Instagram bio reads: “reconciling the hearts of people back to God. Restoring the love and relationship between God and His people.”
From Emmanuel’s social media it looks like he’s already an established singer and has his own Sound Cloud page.
