Emmanuel Jal: The music of a war child

wow…

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.

what an amazing story.  what an amazing person.  from child soldier to rapper, author, actor and activist.

i first heard his name a couple of weeks back, when emmanuel was in oz for the melbourne festival.  so i did some more digging…

i won’t say anymore.  just check out his story for yourself.  read the book, listen to his music, watch the doco.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.  Mt 5:9
