Vocalist and songwriter and “The Voice” season 9 winner Jordan Smith has signed a deal with Provident Label Group/Sony Music. Releasing his first single with the label today, titled “Great You Are,” it is also accompanied with a lyric video. Smith has a voice that needs no introduction and with faith that needs no explanation. From the moment the Kentucky native was first introduced to America through “The Voice,” it was evident that his faith was part of his DNA. And now his beliefs take center stage as he steps into the next natural chapter of his career with new music and his new label family.
“I was just so moved by the idea that if I’m silent, the Lord will still find a way to be worshipped,” Jordan Smith exclaims. “He won’t miss out on anything because we don’t give Him the glory or the recognition or the worship He deserves. But I want so badly to be a part of that.”
WCQR/Kingsport’s Tori Franklin says the station is gearing up for it’s Sweetie Pie Staycation Giveaway for Valentine’s Day.
