One of the most important, influential (exponentially and directly) and biggest contributors to the Christian music in the latin community. Emmanuel was born and raised in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. His parents were both pastors at a local church where he began to play drums and guitar. He also started working with his older brother, Luis Enrique Espinosa, who is also a renown Christian singer in the Latin community, and when Emmanuel was 13 years old, he recorded with him.
During his teens, he met Rubén Gonzalez, whom later would be part of his future band. When he was 17, he moved to Mexico City to study music. After studying for six months, he moved to Durango to work in CanZion Productions and travel as Marcos Witt bassist. Meanwhile, he was also working as producer, arranger, composer, and recorded for Witt, Danilo Montero, and Jesús Adrián Romero, among others.
At the end of the 1990s, Espinosa joined Gonzalez and started shaping up his own musical project. After recruiting guitarist Oswaldo Burruel and singer Annette Moreno, they officially formed Rojo in 2000. With the band, Espinosa has enjoyed critical praise and success as the band has been nominated to several awards, including Latin Grammy and Dove Awards.
In 2007, Espinosa published a book called "Enseñame a Vivir" which it translates to "Teach me to Live" in which he shares how to live a life surrendered, of service and devotion to God. Espinosa currently leads Pulso Records, a division of CanZion Productions.
Espinosa is married to Linda Moreno. They have three children together.
