Even at 16 years old, Jordan Jansen is keenly aware of the effect his singing has on others. He sees the joy his voice brings to their faces and the warmth it ignites in their hearts, and while he keeps a level head about his talent and rapidly rising fame, it is the joy his singing brings to others that makes him love what he does.
"When I sing, I like to look around and see people with smiles on their faces," Jordan says. "It makes me happy."
His video of the Leonard Cohen song "Hallelujah" is a goosebump blend of raw emotion and soaring melody, demonstrating a vocal skill and spiritual depth usually found in someone of far greater years. It's no surprise, then, that fans responded in droves. His YouTube channel has millions of channel views, his videos have been viewed over forty million times, and his channel on the site has over 340,000 subscribers, making it one of the most subscribed Australian channels of all time.
Jordan has over 750,000 followers on Twitter, and a fan club of devotees who call themselves Jordaneers. In a few short months he has amassed well over half a million followers on facebook. He performs in Australia for crowds of up to 10,000 delighted music lovers, and as he recently returned from America for his first official recording session, he earned accolades from Bonnie Fuller's Hollywood Life website, which rightfully dubbed him "the latest pride and joy of Australia."
Jordan would like to extend special thanks to his generous sponsors which include: Salon VIP, Matt Ward Vocal Studios and Dinah Williams.
