Jordan Smith has had to fight for his long-time dream to be on “The Voice”. He has struggled with feelings of inadequacy and not being a “real” musician for a long time. He’s always thought of himself as a singer, but playing an instrument and singing in front of people at the same time was another matter. Then there was the disappointment when he didn’t make the cut for season eight. Empowered by his faith in Jesus, he found a way to overcome that for season 9.
