Silver Medal at the 2019 International Latino Book Awards. Inspired by a true story, Emmanuel, born without arms or legs, finds his way to happiness through his love for music.
Emmanuel Kelly was born and abandoned into war-torn Iraq. Two nuns found him, a tiny baby without feet or hands, in a shoe box in park where his parents left him. They decided to name him Emmanuel and raise him at an orphanage, where the little one met another child like him and they became brothers for life. The nuns took very good care of them, but one day a magic angel appeared and decided to adopt the two brothers and bring them to Australia with her for a life changing surgery --that was when Moira knew she had found her sons.
Emmanuel's sheer passion for singing, for life, and for 'dreaming big' in the face of huge obstacles, led him to achieving his dream of becoming a singer and a true inspiration for others.
A real-life story about a boy born under the most difficult conditions who achieved his passion for signing and is true to his motto to dream big, work hard and achieve great things
