Emanuel Johnson II
Musician, producer, songwriter and artist from Detroit, Michigan. Son of music industry veteran musician, Emanuel "E J" Johnson (lead singer) of Enchantment. With his musical roots beginning in church, Emanuel started playing instruments and singing with an instinctive ability as a child. Piano and organ would become his passion and by age fifteen he gained his first paying position as church organist.
By his late teens, Emanuel began playing for local groups and choirs and would eventually lead to playing on professional stages and traveling with artists such as Kierra "Ki Ki" Sheard and Karen Clark Sheard. He also had the opportunity to play and accompany such artists as Martha Munizzi, Twinkie Clark, Dorinda Clark Cole, the Clark Sisters, Kim Burrell, Marvin Sapp and Rance Allen to name a few.

Teaching would also become a part of this journey as organ and piano instructor at the legendary Clark Conservative School of Music and his own company GIWU Music Factory.
As traveling and performing began to slow down, Emanuel began writing his first album and launched his own ministry/brand GIWU (God Is With Us). Their first single "We Need You" was released in September 2007 a tribute to victims of Hurricane Katrina. Other releases include God Is With Us 2008, Christmas With You 2009 and Movin' single 2011. GIWU has shared the stage with many up and coming local artists around metropolitan Detroit and was blessed to be a special guest on the National Television Word Network Live TV taping April 2012.
Having produced and arranged music for several local independent artists, Emanuel deems one of his most proud and greatest accomplishments to date was composing and producing a single for his dad "Valentine" released February 7, 2014.
With the resease of a couple more single "Intercede and No Ordinary Day", his passion is to continue to create and produce quality music with a message of love, joy, peace, hope and unity.
