Start with Art is brought to you by Schahet Hotels and the Arts Council of Indianapolis.
Emmanuel Carter is a Carmel-based actor who has competed on “America’s Got Talent” with his former dance group, co-starred in the 2019 Netflix show “Soundtrack,” and appeared in the film “Creed 2” and TV shows “Fatal Attraction, “For My Man,” and “Murder Chose Me.” He’s also acted in 40+ commercials, including this fun one for Tappers Arcade.
“My goal as an actor/entertainer is to contribute a truly positive influence on the world because it’s a very effective and loving way of uniting people together,” Carter said. “Doesn’t matter your background or ideologies - we all just wanna feel good, and when you feel good, good things happen!”
