"The Voice’’ winner, Jordan Smith, releases Christian single

Season 9 winner of The Voice, Jordan Smith, has released his first Christian single, ‘’Great You Are’’. The singer and songwriter newly signed with Provident Label Group/Sony. He is the highest-selling artist that The Voice has ever produced. In a bid to return his gift back to God, Smith decided that he would make his faith the main focus with this single and his planned album.

He spoke to The Christian Post about his new single saying that when the song was written, he knew that it was unique but he did take any time to imagine how unique the song was for him as an artist and his journey since he won The Voice competition. ‘’Great You Are’’ was written by Smith alongside Matt Armstrong and Jeff Sojka.

While describing the song, Smith said; "The song itself just says, 'everything I am I lay it down here at your feet, and I'm returning this to you.’” He also added that the song was written before the outbreak of corona virus and this narrows down to the need to continually build our faith in God even when we are going through tough times.

Likewise, he talked about the problems many persons went through last year due to the pandemic. While he admitted that he was equally anxious of those events and he felt a bit out of control because he does not have power over everything that is happening. Smith continued;

"But just in that time of feeling out of control and feeling anxious and feeling worried about all of this — that's coming at us constantly — I think it's so important to slow down for a moment and say, 'Wait, I can experience heartbreak, I can experience failure, I can experience bad things. I can experience blessing and success and good things. Yet all of it fits into God's plan, and all of it is in His hands. It doesn't change who He is.

"He's always faithful, He's constant, He's good, and He loves us unconditionally. It's important to stop and remind ourselves of just how good He is and how faithful He is in our lives. Whenever we lay down all of those heartbreaks, all of those trials, all of those, even blessings, down to Him, it's just refreshing. It brings new life to our spirit, and I hope that that's what the song can do for people,” Smith said.
