In America today Christianity is slowly but surely being stripped away. We have football coaches and players alienated because they pray on a field, it is now politically incorrect to say ‘Merry Christmas’ and we had a statue of Satan being erected in a major American city.
But last night on NBC’s The Voice, Jordan Smith, a top 12 contestant, decided it was the time and the place for the world to hear a classic hymn, “Great is Thy Faithfulness.”
When Jordan’s brilliant performance was over not only did his coach Adam Levin applaud and stand, the three other coaches, Blake Shelton, Pharrell Williams, Gwen Stefani joined him in giving Smith a standing ovation. Their eyes were watery and the judges were rendered pretty much speechless.
Blake said, ‘Man Jordan, you know coming off the horrible things that happened over in Paris and having a heavy heart the last few days, thank you for that. That was beautiful man.’
Pharrell added, ‘Dude, you had me standing up in the middle of the song I, I just have to, you know, I’ll keep it very brief, right now I don’t care about the vote, go to iTunes and buy this song from this guy right now.’
His coach, Adam Levin, proudly said, ‘You know Blake took the words right out of my mouth. Sometimes there can be so much about the world that can be so confusing and so sad, and then you come along and make us all feel like there is a lot of hope and all of sudden, you just feel this sense of rejuvenation and joy that, for a minute there, you don’t think you’re going to get to feel again. I thank you as well, Thank you, Jordan.’
Jordan’s version is currently sitting at No. 1 on the iTunes chart.
Fan support was just as unbelievable. Here are a few tweets about Jordan’s performance:
