ABOUT JORDAN SMITH:
JORDAN SMITH’s much anticipated debut album, Something Beautiful [LightWorkers Media/Republic Records], is available now everywhere. Throughout the album, his undeniable delivery and instantly recognizable range drives both original songs and cover tracks produced by legends such as Grammy Award winning producer David Foster [Céline Dion, Michael Bublé, Josh Groban] and modern hit maker Stephan Moccio [The Weeknd, Ellie Goulding, Miley Cyrus].
Something Beautiful initially debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and “earned the highest ranking on the chart by any winner of a television singing competition in almost 5 years.” It also broke the records for the highest album sales debut from a new artist in 2016 and most first-week album sales for a winner of the Emmy Award winning show, The Voice.
The 22-year-old from Harlan, KY, JORDAN SMITH stands out as the highest-selling artist to ever emerge from NBC’s EMMY AWARD®-winning The Voice. In less than six months, he sold over 1 million singles and made Voice history by landing eight songs in the iTunes Top 10—the first artist from any season to hit the iTunes Top 10 every single week of the Live Rounds. Of the eight songs that went Top 10 on iTunes, six hit Top 3, and three captured #1 on iTunes, all of which knocked Adele off the top spot!
