Born into war torn Iraq and abandoned by his parents as a baby, Emmanuel was rescued from an orphanage by Moira Kelly and brought to Australia for life changing surgery.

He always dreamed of becoming a professional recording artist. He won the chance in 2011 when he appeared on The X Factor and his rendition of “Imagine” moved the judges and thousands of people in the audience to tears— and earned himself a standing ovation.

On January 23, Kelly appeared at the premiere of Good News Weekly LIVE, a free event in Los Angeles which is simultaneously streaming on the GNN Facebook Page.

The event was presented and recorded for a podcast and video at the iconic music recording venue at 6365 Selma Avenue, now known as Liberate Hollywood. (Check their calendar for future GNN Weekly Live events.
