Today we’d like to introduce you to Manasseh Emanuel.
Hi Manasseh, so excited to have you on the platform. So, before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
Music has always been a part of my life in some way shape or form. My mom used to tell me even as a baby I was banging on pots and pans, but I really started taking music seriously at 12, which was when I got my first guitar. I did my first concert that year as well, and that’s really where I fell in love with playing, singing, practicing, and performing. Being involved with music has brought me so many great opportunities and given me a community of great people.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It most definitely hasn’t been easy a road. I struggled with my individuality. It was hard feeling like the I was only person that heard music the way I did. It was hard because my sound was truly different and unique, but that’s what made it scary. It took me a long time to love my sound, but I’m so grateful that God made me sound the way I do. I also struggled with my confidence and believing I could really do music because 1. Nobody in my family does music, 2. I had never really been involved in the music scene seriously, and 3. I hadn’t seen it don’t and I didn’t know the steps to get where I wanted.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I’m a worship leader, singer, songwriter, musician, music director, producer, and artist, but overall, I’m a creative. I specialize in creating moments. I think I’m known for being an artist/singer, or being a musician. I truly proud of the way I’ve stayed true to who I am at my core. I think what sets me apart is my style. I’m different and tend to keep people on their toes. I always say I’m an urban Christian artist with a little gospel flare, rockstar energy, and pop star vibes!
If we knew you growing up, how would we have described you?
Growing up all I really did was play music and sports. The majority of my time was spent on a court, on a soccer field, in my room with my guitar, and at church with my friends. Whatever I did had to be fun and that’s still how I am today, if I’m going to do anything I have to try and make it fun. I was also super into marvel and superheroes; I just knew one day I’d get superpowers! Lastly, I’ve always dreamt big, at times unrealistically big, but big nonetheless. Since I was young, I have always been a dreamer, so I believed I could do anything. Some things never change.
