We all have our memories of the great voices of old that are always remembered and never forgotten, but we still wonder is there any of that silky unique suave style of music and voice left in this day and time. The answer is yes and his name is Emmanuel Withers. His soft, smooth, and demanding tone will entice an old ear as well as awaken a new one. He brings an innocence back to music that massages a curiosity of wanting more and not given up on what has been lost in music today.
Raised primarily in Baltimore, Maryland and Queens, New York, this R&B/Soul Singer gives you all the elements of a 21st century quintessential male vocalist. Moving around a lot in his early years made it difficult for Emmanuel to sustain friendships. However, music provided a sense of comfort, peace, and stability that never left. For inspiration, Emmanuel turned to music and it quickly became his first love.
While receiving his bachelor’s from Morgan State University, he began singing backup vocals for Marcel & the Truth and Raheem DeVaughn.

Naturally, as fate would have it, it was not long before his first love came knocking once more. With his professional goals accomplished, Emmanuel is totally committed to his first Love – MUSIC. Not to mention, he is a newly recruited member of ‘The Temptations, and sings the vocal part of Eddie Kendricks. Artists such as Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, Sarah Vaughn, Donny Hathaway, and many more inspire him to create. His soulful sound coupled with his “Neo Classic” vibe will surely make Emmanuel Withers a household name.
