Emmanuel Jal: The music of a war child

For five years, young Emmanuel Jal fought as a child soldier in the Sudan. Rescued by an aid worker, he’s become an international hip-hop star and an activist for kids in war zones. In words and lyrics, he tells the story of his amazing life.

Hear War Child Emmanuel giving his story in Oxford.

Emmanuel Jal, War ChildHis story in a Poem starts at 4.27.

He finishes with a song to Emma McCune the aid worker who rescued him and 150 other Boy Soldiers. “What would I be if Emma never rescued me?”

I hope my story helps, too.
