Emmanuel Jal


In the war-torn region of Southern Sudan, Emmanuel Jal was born into the life of a child solider on an unknown date in the early 1980s. Through unbelievable struggles, Emmanuel managed to survive and emerge as a recording artist, achieving worldwide acclaim for his unique style of hip hop with its message of peace and reconciliation born out of his personal experiences.

Emmanuel is currently touring around the world; performing and sharing his experiences and personal message for peace in a quest to boost social and emotional learning amongst young people as they become active global citizens.
Oh yeah, oh yeah, I'm looking for some people who's looking for peace
Maybe together we could make the war cease
Now we can send mankind to the moon
And we can reach to the bottom of the sea
That's why it's really kind of baffles me
That we can not end wars and bring peace
And we can not change the way people act
And we can not change the way people think
So if we sit back chill out and relax
Civilization will soon be extinct
That's why I am

I'm calling on, I'm calling on the whole wide world
On the whole wide world
Come on people, would you help me?
Let's scream and shout, let's scream and shout cause we want peace
And we want peace, to say the least

I dedicate this song to the common people
Caught in the middle of this common evil
I wish the world was a little bit fairer
Time we start looking at the man in the mirror
Fear is the devil's policeman
Fear made good Germans side with Hitler so we can build the war of genocide and havoc was wreaking
Silence of the lambs cause nobody was speaking, that's why I am
[Hook]
I'm calling on, I'm calling on the whole wide world
On the whole wide world
Come on people, would you help me?
Let's scream and shout, let's scream and shout cause we want peace, cause we want peace

Somebody said: After Rwanda Rwanda, never again, and after Rwanda, It's happening
Not far from Rwanda, just next door
Who's gonna shout for the people living in Darfur?

The world's going deaf, the world's going blind
The world's busy sitting down on their behind
Nobody care about the poor and the needy
Too busy sucking up to to the rich and the greedy
For every hero there's a villain
I ain't kidding
We gonna shout out standing up or sitting, one more time?, we got no more time
We gotta figure out a way to make it all combine
Like Jericho the work …
...Voices out of city surround
You know what is wrong I'mma put our voices to work
We gonna shut down heaven and earth
That's why I am

I'm calling on, I'm calling on the whole wide world
On the whole wide world
Come on people, would you help me?
Let's scream and shout, let's scream and shout cause we want peace, and we want piece
And we won't be, who said at least
Come on, everybody come on, stand up, stand up, stand up
You want peace and I want peace, stand up
You want peace and I want peace, stand up
Come on, everybody come on, stand up, stand up, stand up

I'm calling on, I'm calling on the whole wide world
On the whole wide world
Come on people, would you help me?
Let's scream and shout, let's scream and shout cause we want peace, and we want piece
And we won't be, who said at least

I want peace and you want peace, stand up
You want peace and I want peace, stand up
Come on, stand up, stand up, stand up
We want peace, we want peace, we want peace, we want peace
