Emmanuel Kelly – living LIFE in peace

From X-Factor Australia, Iraqi-born Emmanuel Kelly tells the beautiful pro-life story of his rescue and adoption. When he and his brother were found as infants, they had no birth certificates and had been severely injured. Both were eventually adopted by their Australian mother, whom Kelly speaks of during his audition:

“I was born in the middle of a war zone. My brother and I were found by nuns in a box in a park, in a shoebox … It was like looking at an angel when my mum walked through the orphanage door. She brought us both to Australia for surgery originally, and then, sort of, mum fell in love with both of us. My hero would have to be my mother.”
