Jordan Smith is among the Top 12 on this year’s The Voice. Last night playing at the piano, Jordan stirred the audience with his rendition of “Great is thy Faithfulness.”
It not only affected the crowd but even the judges were awed by his performance. Blake Shelton said:
“Man, Jordan, you know, coming off the weekend, the horrible things that happened over in Paris, and just having a heavy heart over the last few days, thank you for that. That was beautiful.”
Jordan’s coach on The Voice, Adam Levine added:
“Sometimes, there’s so much about the world that can be so confusing and sad. Then you come along, and make us feel there’s a lot of hope.”
The judges were not the only people moved by Jordan’s performance. Once the video was posted to YouTube, Kimiki Wolf commented:
“Jordan Smith sang his song so well that I almost converted.”
Jordan is a Christian and attended Lee University, a Liberal arts college operated by the Church of God. Based in Cleveland, Tennessee, Lee University is renowned for its music program.
By audience vote, Jordan was the first contestant to move on to the Top 11 on tonight’s show.
