Remember what we said about how important it is for winners of “The Voice” to make a name for themselves almost right away after the show? Well, Jordan Smith has figured out a way to do just that.
On Wednesday, Smith will perform for his first time on primetime TV since the show during the People’s Choice Awards with known other than iconic producer David Foster, who he is also working with on his debut album. Speaking to People Magazine, Mark Burnett (who produces both the singing show and also the PCAs) had the following to say:
“Just confirmed Jordan Smith performing, accompanied by David Foster on piano … They’re in the studio now working on his album together.”
While this is obviously no guarantee of a long and fruitful career, it does at least show further that Burnett and the production team are at least doing their part to ensure that he has some success following the show. Throughout this past season Adam Levine was very vocal in particular about how Universal Music Group has been routinely letting down winners of the show, not giving them the freedom or the opportunities to be huge success stories. Maybe all of this is a sign that folks are listening, and want to do what they can in order to make Jordan a big star. We know that at least vocally, he has the potential. Did you hear him perform the National Anthem during the recent NHL Winter Classic? Suffice it to say that we thought it was a killer vocal.
