Twenty-one-year-old college student and “The Voice” finalist Jordan Smith stated that no matter what happens, his faith gives him strength and joy.
Smith is one of four finalists on the singing competition program. Smith is part of Adam Levine’s team, and nearly surpassed Adele for the top iTunes spot after his stellar performance of Queen’s “Somebody to Love,” according to Christian Today.
Smith is not only a gifted singer, but a committed Christian.
"I love to lead worship and my parents really encouraged me to sing in church," shared Smith. "My faith is who I am and I wanted to share that with the world," he stated during an interview.
"My faith is the thing that gives me strength and that I find joy in,” Smith continued. “At the end of the day with my problems and concerns, I can turn to God and I can have peace in my situation. That's been the main thing that's carried me through this. My relationship with God has kept me grounded and has been my foundation through all of it.”
Smith said he is grateful for the opportunities God has given him. "This platform has opened so many doors for me and has allowed me so many opportunities to make music in lots of different ways," he said. "At this time, I'm just waiting prayerfully and doing my best. Whatever happens, I know I will continue to make music and lead worship wherever I go. While my future is unsure at this moment, I know who holds the future, and I will continue to move and trust in God's plan for me."
The season 9 finale of “The Voice” is set to air on Tuesday, December 15.
