Emmanuel Kelly

Artist Description

Emmanuel Kelly was found as an infant in a box on a battlefield on the border of Iraq. At an incredibly
tender age, Emmanuel witnessed executions, bombings, and wondered every day if that day would be his last. At age 7, Emmanuel was brought to Australia by humanitarian Moira Kelly for life changing surgery and learned to walk for the first time.

After overcoming tremendous obstacles, and at only 18 years of age, Emmanuel became an Australian X

He has toured with Coldplay, opened for Snoop Dog, performed with David Foster and legendary DJ Paul Oakenfold, performed at the United Nations Assembly multiple times and, just this year, released a new song “Never Alone” produced by Paul Oakenfold and Chris Martin. The music video for his song was released in tandem with his campaign to connect with and inspire people, that even in the darkest moments of our lives, there is always a light to be found because you are #NeverAlone. The video features many friends advocating global mental health awareness and encourages people to embrace virtually + authentically connecting during the pandemic.
