This is Jenn Allison - EXE Media Group. World renowned hip hop artist, activist, author & actor, Emmanuel Jal, is starring in "The Good Lie" with Reese Witherspoon! Will you feature Jal? His new album is See Me Mama.
"The Good Lie" is about a young refugee of the Sudanese Civil War who wins a lottery for relocation to the United States with three other lost boys. Encountering the modern world for the first time, they develop an unlikely friendship with a brash American woman (Reese Witherspoon) assigned to help them, but the young men struggle to adjust to this new life and feelings of guilt about the brother left behind.
In the war-torn region of Southern Sudan, Emmanuel Jal was born into the life of a child solider. Through unbelievable struggles, Emmanuel managed to survive. He was rescued & adopted by a British aid worker, Emma McCune. Jal emerge as a world-famous recording artist with a hit record under his belt.

We Want Peace (WWP), spearheaded by Emmanuel Jal, beginning in December 2010, has a simple goal: To raise awareness on the fundamental principles of justice, equality, unification and conflict prevention, through the power of music, worldwide. In dedication to Southern Sudan's historic referendum, Emmanuel released "We Want Peace" what has become the worldwide music hit. The uptempo feel good classic brings a sense of appreciation and entertainment to the importance of peace and security.
Emmanuel Jal has won worldwide acclaim for his unique style of hip hop with its message of peace and reconciliation born out of his experiences as a child soldier in Sudan. His music can be heard alongside Coldplay, Gorillaz, and Radiohead on the fundraising "War Child Help a Day in the Life" album, as well as in three ER episodes, the National Geographic documentary God Grew Tired of Us, and in the feature film Blood Diamond starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Emmanuel spoke at TED Global, rang the bell at the NY Stock Exchange, and released his autobiography "War Child" all in 2009.
Despite his accomplishments in music, Jal's biggest passion is for Gua Africa. Besides building schools, the nonprofit provides scholarships for Sudanese war survivors in refugee camps, and sponsors education for children in the most deprived slum areas in Nairobi. For almost a year now, Jal has been eating one meal a day in his campaign to build a school in Leer, Southern Sudan, where Emma McCune is resting. The Gua Africa mission is to work with individuals, families and communities to help them overcome the effects of war & poverty. His projects are based in both Sudan and Kenya with a focus on providing education to children & young adults who would otherwise be denied this opportunity.
This Saturday, Emmanuel Jal will be receiving a Humanitarian Award in Dallas, TX from the Hunt Institute, featured in allAfrica. He is receiving $25,000 which will all be donated to the charity he founded, GUA Africa, to help build Emma Academy in his hometown of Leer, South Sudan.
Emmanuel Jal is doing a 100 School High Tour in the USA to share his experiences, personal message for peace in a quest to promote social & emotional learning amongst young people as they become active, global citizens. He's starting in Los Angeles in October.
Jal's current album release is "See Me Mama" -iTunes.

Hi Ellen I love your show, I just wanted a chance to meet my favorite band in the world! One Direction, I would like to thank them for these incredible songs they sing! They helped me throughout rough times in my life. I use to cut myself and I recently cut myself for some issues going on at home, but when I started to listen to One Direction their songs helped me a lot! I just wanted a chance to thank them in person! Knowing they can never have a proper conversation with fans, and also I live in a small town in California I know that I may never thank them. One day I was feeling empty inside and felt alone I felt pain and I wanted to end my life,that was until moments by One Direction started playing and I decided not to. Their songs really speak to me and I'm very grateful for them because their music was all I had. My parents actually never found out until the last time I cut myself they started making me attend therapy which is working out, but I just need a chance to thank them in person! If you could please make it happen then I would be very happy and grateful! Thank you so much Ellen!

My Husband and I enjoy watching your show. James and I Charlotte just celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary. We were not able to have a real celebration. Although we invited our family: children and grand children over for a toast. We would love to have a real celebration, with food, good wine, and music . Our family and friends. We met in high school art class. When we married we had nothing but love. We now have 3 children and 4 grand children. We have lots of love. I love it when you change the lives of people. . God bless you! 100 is the score for you.
Hi Ellen, Its Stephanie Argumedo and Stephanie Marroquin from Modesto California, we have been bestfriends since the sixth grade, now we are juniors in highschool, we both have one wish and thats to be able to go to one of your shows and meet Justin Beiber.

Us as bestfriends do pretty much everything together and we would love if you can make our dream come true. We are IN LOVE with Justin AND your show, we watch it everyday. Your show is so hilarious and we would love to enjoy atleast one show with you in person, and play our favorite game, which is "Know Or Go" . We really want to meet Justin as i have said it a few times, i know your really good friends with him and would be able to make our dream come true. We would also love to dance with you at the beginning of your show. Hopefully you can make this real and we can be on your show.

I wish for you and Porsha to have a very merry Christmas! i watch your show everyday. In order for me to post anything on Facebook, I have to go to the library and use the computer there. I did not get the computer, my husband did. We are not living together now, so it is really hard to communicate with people. But I will continue to facebook you as often as I can.
My name is Tina White, my daughter Miranda, & myself love your show. I realize that you are approached alot by people with requests for help in one form or another, & I guess I am now one of many doing the same. I am an average every day person, there is nothing spectacular about me. I can't really complain, life has been good, I've always been able to keep our heads afloat b
y Gods' g
od grace. Although I've always been able to give my kids everything they need I'm not really in a position to ever spoil them with unnecessary things. It can be upsetting at times to see the dissappointment in their faces. Our favorite radio station 103.3x fm out of Florence, SC is running a week long contest giving away Justin Bieber tickets for his August concert in Columbia, SC. We have been trying every chance we get but attending school, & work during the day makes it a bit difficult to get through. Every time she realizes she once again didn't win despite of our efforts it destroys her, & she is left crying. She said last night it's like someone has punched her in the stomach. I realize that there are many more troubling issues in the world, but if you saw fit to help us in any way to help Mirandas' dream come true, I would forever be in your debt. Thank you, God Bless, & Merry Christmas.
