A school? A concert? A church?The Elonzo Wesley band’s “Emanuel” is a pretty self-explanatory song reflecting upon one of the most infamous mass shootings in recent U.S. history. Frontman Jeremy Davis (guitar, vocals) penned the ballad right after 21-year-old white supremacist Dylann Roof left nine people dead in 2015 at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC. Davis was on the road at the time, staying in a Tennessee Motel 6 when he woke up to hear the news.
Weeks after Dylann Roof murdered nine people at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, Elonzo Wesley’s Jeremy Davis checked into a hotel outside of Nashville. On the cable channels, many newscasters were still talking about the massacre. Davis fell asleep with the TV on. He woke up in the middle of the night and started writing what would become the song “Emanuel.”
