A little over two years ago, a young boy stood alone, on a very, very large stage. His eyes stayed low, looking down at his feet. His breathing was rapid and his blood rushed as the music began to play and quietly he began to sing. “Where is Love” As he went on, he relaxed a bit more and was able to sing a bit louder; maybe even a bit better. And finally the song was done. He survived it. The applause came and at that moment, he knew. He knew that’s what he wanted to do for the rest of his life.
His second song he entered the stage confidently. He knew what he would do. He knew the song. He listened for the music. His breathing was rapid and his blood rushed but this time not out of fear. This time it was excitement! He owned the stage and has owned it ever since.
Jordan Jansen is a 4ft 5in (135cm) bundle of talent. His Hazel colored eyes have sighted in on a target and he’s going for it. There is no stopping him once he sets his mind to achieve it. He has had dance lessons as well as singing and piano. His hard work really shows in his rapid advancement and his vocal skills have increased exponentially.
When I first heard Jordan sing, he was raw and unrefined. But I could hear those beautiful notes mingled within the searching notes. I knew they were there waiting to burst forth into a beautiful treble splendor. He was looking to find pitch without reference. He was learning musical progression, learning to intuitively anticipate the next note and to find it perfectly. He was hungry for it. And he found it and has continued finding it daily.
Since then he has learned a great deal. He has found his head voice and has learned to make good round vowel sounds. He does very little searching these days. He knows his craft and works to fine tune it daily. He has increased his library of songs and has expanded on rock solid performances. He has also become a much sought after actor. And the public is responding. Between his YouTube hits and his theater and nightclub performances, Jordan has become a professional in every sense of the word.

Achieving very high results in numerous Eisteddfods, Jordan won the Overall 12 years and Under Song and Dance Award in Ipswich 2006, and last year won the Most Promising Performer receiving the Dot Doherty Trophy. He received the Music Excellence Award for the Beenleigh Eisteddfod & was invited back to sing for the Gold Coast Eisteddfod Musicale to perform his rendition of “I Am Australian.” 2008 Jordan won the Musical Theatre section of the Spotlight Entertainers Festival with his “If I Were a Rich Man” and received the perpetual trophy for the 2nd year running.
Nothing stops this little guy. He overcomes every obstacle put in front of him. He has some digestive issues and severe food allergies that lands him in the hospital several times a year. But he just keeps on going. Recently he had a part in, “Annie Get Your Gun.” Which was demanding for both, performances as well as rehearsals. He also had Eisteddfods and had to report to the hospital for tests Every day! Not to mention that he was not feeling well at all. It was a schedule that made his mother/chauffer cringe and she didn’t even have to perform when she got to the destinations. But he did it all and school too. With top marks! And he did it all wonderfully. He won many events in the Eisteddfods.
Just hearing him speak, will put a smile on your face. He has that gifted quality to his voice. He’s one of those special people who is able to send a smile through his voice.
