Emmanuel was hired to play at our wedding ceremony and the best word to describe him is amazing! When played “I believe in you and me” everyone had tears! The pastor actually acknowledged how well he played that song. I will definitely use him for my next event!
We had Mr. Jackson at our annual school convocation. He was superb as always. He is always
very accommodating even with last-minute requests. Everyone is still raving about his rendition of
Lift Every Voice and Sing.
Emanuel did an amazing job playing at our wedding. He exceeded our expectations and adapted to changes on the day so well. I also loved how responsive and easy he was to communicate with from the time we booked him to the day of our wedding.
Mr Jackson was timely, professional, courteous, and REALLY, REALLY good at playing the saxophone. So many people during and after the event complemented his performance. I'll definitely use him again for any future events.
Emanuel was great . He was early and played everything we ask , even some that we forgot about. I would definitely use you again.
Mr. Jackson played very well. My guests and I enjoyed him very much. My thought is, he would sound better if he had a keyboard player.
Response from Emanuel Jackson:
The client didn’t request a keyboard player and in addition the client had me stay 30 mins more, since the party was enjoying themselves.
Emanuel was wonderful at our holiday party. He played just the right selection of holiday music mixed with more mainstream and it created such a wonderful atmosphere for our guests.
Thank you Mr. Emanuel Jackson for your professionalism and for treating my guest to the lovely music and melody. We enjoyed your performance and I look forward to working with you in the future.

Gospel music has always been a pivotal part of Emanuel Jackson’s life. Born on July 6, 1986 in Baltimore, Maryland Emanuel being one of eight children quickly embraced Christianity and the motivational sounds of gospel music. Evangelist Janice and the late Minister William Jackson had the family rooted and grounded in the church and encouraged them to get involved in extra-curricular activities. Therefore, at the age of 9 Emanuel gained a particular interest in the saxophone and began to take lessons in school. Emanuel was a beginner of course but, with his upbringing he was inspired to begin immediately playing at his church in Baltimore, MD under the leadership of Apostle Julia Williams. Emanuel went on to play in middle school and high school participating in concert band, symphonic band, jazz band and even small ensembles such as sax quartets when necessary.
Emanuel loved to play but, he realized he had a gift from God to be able to impact the lives of people through his passionate performing ability on the saxophone. This without question was Emanuel’s passion so every time there was a church service he was there to minister to the people of God.
Some influential artists that Emanuel looked up to growing up are Israel Houghton, Jonathan Butler and Kirk Whalum just to name a few. These artists also helped fuel Emanuel’s passion even further as he prepared to go off to college.
Emanuel began his undergrad studies at Chowan University where he was a Music Business/Technology major from 2004 to 2009 when he graduated with his Bachelors. Emanuel participated in the concert band as well as the jazz combo where he was featured as a soloist in several University concerts, recitals and showcases. Emanuel studied music in depth which covered music theory, history and other main courses which helped him immensely with the skill of improvisation. With the encouragement of his professors Emanuel took his gift to a new level that he never had anticipated. In addition to the jazz combo Emanuel also was director for the Chowan Gospel Choir for 4 years where he was featured as a soloist for semester concerts and with other Universities such as Elizabeth City State University, Norfolk State University and North Carolina Wesleyan College.

He continued working with the choirs as a music minister director, the adult praise and worship leader, and a solo saxophonist at Fort Belvoir Gospel Service in 2009-2012. On August 20, 2010 Emanuel and his beautiful wife Jasmine Jackson united as one in holy matrimony and continue to work together in the music ministry as God leads them. They now reside in Northern Virginia. Emanuel and his Wife Jasmine serve as members of the music ministry at Greater Mt. Calvary Holy Church of America under the leadership of Arch-Bishop Alfred A. Owens Jr. and Co-Pastor Susie Owens.
