Jesse Manibusan Bio ~
Jesse has the special gift of being able to engage and reach out to any individual -- either one on one at a confirmation retreat, or within a large group of teens at a youth rally, or with a crowd of 500,000 people at World Youth Day. It doesn’t matter how small or large the audience is. This dynamic performer will touch your soul and have you praising God with him.
Jesse calls himself a Catholic lay evangelist who uses music, comedy and stories to connect with people. Very much in demand around the country as a motivational speaker, Jesse’s uplifting message touches all generations. “God gives us life. We may have disappointments, we may be really angry or depressed,” said the singer. “It’s good we can have a moment to say to God, ‘Thank you for life.’”
Although he now resides in Grapevine, Texas with his wife Jodi and their two daughters, Jesse has lived most of his life in Alameda, California, serving as a music minister and youth minister in various parishes in the Diocese of Oakland. That diverse community was the inspiration for his popular multicultural collection Misa del Mundo, as well as the CDs Power of Peace, and Love Never Fails. The latter CD, a collaboration with Ken Canedo, contains the Unity Award-winning Rap/Hip Hop Song for 2003, “MC God.”
All his recordings showcase Jesse’s amazingly versatile singing voice. He is equally at home crooning ballads like “Open My Eyes” and “Fly Like a Bird,” belting out rockers like “Power of Peace” and “Fish With Me,” and rapping out hip hop tunes like “Another Day” and “What’s the Word.” No wonder he was named Artist of the Year by the United Catholic Music and Video Association.
