Emanuel Deanda is a singer/songwriter/producer/performer/educator. He was raised in the rough streets of Pittsburgh, Pa. by an African American mother and Mexican born Father. Escaping the trappings of gang activity, drugs and violence, he relentlessly pursued his dreams of singing and performing. After his high school years, he teamed up with his former choir mates, becoming the lead singer for local success story Crave. Their many years of hard work lead to a Proclamation (July 21'st is "Crave Day") and the Key To The City presented by the city's mayor in 2007. 

In 2007, the mayor and local radio station WAMO 106.7 recognized his band's success and charity work with The Creative Corner, American Red Cross and a Hurricane Katrina benefit. He parlayed that success into becoming lead singer for the platinum selling boy band Pretty Ricky. 

In 2008, Emanuel signed with Pretty Ricky and Bluestar/Atlantic where he performed under the moniker “Lingerie”. During this period, Emanuel made 6 appearances on BET's "106 & Park". The single "Tipsy In This Club" peaked at #6 on 106 & Park Top 10 Countdown and #52 on the Hot 100 Billboard Charts independently. As well as appearing on BET's "The Monique Show". During his time with PR, Emanuel has recorded songs with big names in the industry such as KeKe Wyatt, Snoop Dogg, Trick Daddy, Bone Thugs N Harmony, H Town and Jodeci to name a few. 

After departing from the group in 2012, Emanuel ventured into a solo career. His first solo project "Cuffin Season" debuting in 2013. Now, Emanuel is back again and has teamed up with Grammy winning music producer "Ryan Dimitri" Bowser to produce his new project and lead single "Blame" which is out now.
