Harlan County’s very own Jordan Smith has taken the country by storm every Monday and Tuesday night since his debut on NBC’s hit show, ‘The Voice’. Jordan wow’d the judges and turned all of their chairs during his blind audition singing the pop ballad, “Chandelier.” The 21-year old was even told by his coach Maroon 5’s Adam Levine that he’s “the most important person that’s been on this show.”
His bio on ‘The Voice’ website describes him perfectly:
“Jordan has a very unique voice – it is so high pitched that he’s often mistaken for a woman on the phone – and as a kid, he dealt with self-esteem issues and always had trouble fitting in. Jordan grew up in a musical family. His father was a professional pianist and his mother is a singer, so making the decision to pursue singing at Lee University, where he performed at the Presidential Inauguration with his choir, was an easy choice. Jordan wants to show people it is okay to be yourself, even if you’re different, on The Voice.”
His most talked about performance- that got a standing ovation and left the judges speechless- was his version of the hymn “Great is Thy Faithfulness.” You can even buy his rendition on iTunes! His talent is really unmatched and tomorrow night is our chance to support him! The live rounds continue with viewers voting to narrow the pack to the Top 10. Jordan is definitely a favorite, but he needs our votes! Be sure to tune in Monday and Tuesday on NBC at 8/7c! Check out all of Jordan’s performances below!
Keep it up Jordan- You’re making Kentucky proud and we are rooting for you!
