Jordan is an amazing person. I have had the pleasure of listening and talking with Jordan for quite sometime now , he has a great personality and his music keeps getting better and better.
Jordan lives in Queensland Australia and is eleven years old ( 12 _on March 12 ) and for someone who has only been singing for about four years he has made quite an impression on the people of Australia and many others around the world including myself. Since he has been singing ,he has been in many contests ,one in 2006 the Junior Springfest Pines Idol and won it ,he was in the Australia`s Got Talent but, unfortunately he didn`t make it. He has been asked to do Australia`s national anthem many different times, ( this is a great honor no matter what country you live in) at the Moncrieff Community awards , International Volunteers Day Awards and the closing ceremonies of the Clubs NSW 2008 annual conference . Only a hand full of people at Jordan`s age gets to have their own show _ he performs live at Club Banora , his debut show was in 2007 and still going . He has done a little bit of everything , tv , musicals , plays and has done or been involved with several charity events,_ one of which was the CD ,Faith for Cystic Fibrosis ,he was the youngest artist chosen. This in it self tells what kind of person he is. Taking time out of his busy schedule for charity, to put someone else before “himself “, I must take my hat off to him for that. Below is him singing at the Galaxy of Stars performance for charity.
Jordan does a great job on all his songs but, he has a special talent when it comes to original songs . Jordan as a great ability it get the emotion into a song. The video at the top is one of his originals ( I Wish ). I chose this one because it is one of my favorites of Jordan`s . It is so well written and his performance on the song is outstanding , it has so much feeling and tells a wonderful story that any one can relate to. He had wrote this song as a Mothers Day surprise but , prior to that he lost some love ones _and I think that, found its way into the song. I know from personal experience . I lost someone a while back and this song really hits home. I know it will for anyone who listens to the words. I believe the innocence in Jordan`s voice helps to make this song so touching. Below I have the video of him doing (Fire and Rain ) by James Taylor it has always been a great song and Jordan really done it justice, I believe James would be honored.
Jordan has something magical about him, its in his music and personality. People are drawn to him. Everyone knows Jordan, I travel all over YouTube and people everywhere knows him. They all love his music and him as a person. I think a lot of his popularity comes from the time he spends talking with his fans and friends. ( This is something a lot people does not do ). He communicates through his sites and twitter. (I think twitter is going to need a channel just for him….lol..)….he cares about his fans. I have know dought this plays a big part. I have seen numerous times, Jordan put up a new video and it gets slammed right away. Jordan is always working to improve himself with dance and voice lessons and even learning the guitar and doing a good job,_ I might add. All these things is what will make his dreams come true. I know one of his dreams is to be on Disney. Jordan would be a great addition to the Disney family. I am sure he would make his way up to perform along side some of the best Disney has.
Jordan has done so much in a short time , but he has done it with a lot of hard work and commitment . He is always kind to people and unselfish . This should be an inspiration to all. I know he has been a big inspiration for me ,probably more than he will ever know. I have learned a lot talking with Jordan over the past couple years, reading his posts and listening to his music . He is truly an outstanding person. He says, he is going to be working on some more original songs soon and he can`t wait. ( neither can I ) . Jordan is also in a video contest at sound check ,please take a minute and vote . It`s been an honor for me to do this article on Jordan . Please when ever visiting Jordan please be sure to say hi. Below I will leave you with one last video from Club Banora singing ” I`ve Got The Music in Me ” ( he sure does ). To listen to more of Jordan just click Jordan`s name.
Emily Harder , what a great voice this young woman has. Emily is fifteen years old and lives in Canada. Her favorite thing to do is sing. She says she started singing about the same time she started to talk. Boy has that paid off . She can sing anything pop , country. Her videos has over two million hits combined . You just don`t find people like Emily everyday ,that can achieve that large of a fan base. It takes great talent to get this size of a fan base. Emily for sure has it.
She said ,she had her first show when she was ten years old. In 2009 she won the Seth Riggs Summer Vocal Program contest , and the 2009 Valley Voices contest. I have no dought that she will win many more . I believe soon she will win the great prize of a big record label , and be singing along side some of her favorite stars Demi Lavato , Miley Cyrus or Taylor Swift . She certainly has the voice and the stage presnce in front of the camera. I read on her channel that she was shy_ it sure don`t show. Emily looks quite at home in front of a mike and camera , as you can see below.
Not only is Emily a talented singer but a song writer as well . She started writing her own songs about thirteen years old. The song above is one of her originals ” Tomorrow ” it is a very nice song well written and performed . The video had great imagination very enjoyable to watch ( I believe she would do a great job of acting too ). There is a good message in the song , that if I am having a bad day that “everything will change tomorrow”. There is alot of truth in that. The songs she writes and sings has alot of passion and adds attatude which really brings out the star quality in her.
I read that on the way back from the vocal camp she made a stop, and while there ended up in a contest and won it . It said that she had always wanted a giant check _well it came true . Below is the video of her singing the climb . This is the song that won her the giant check, and well deserved.
She was in a video contest on Endoora , she won that as well winning a ten day trip to Bel Air and study with some of the worlds top vocal coaches. You can get her original songs on itunes please visit and down load your favorite. Emily not only is a great singer but a real nice person as well. Visit her, at her channel and listen to her many great videos and remmber to say hi while your there .
Mike has an awesome voice ,when he sings, you can`t help but, connect with him. Mike has this nice soft soothing sound ,that just pulls you right into the songs he sings. Not only ,do I enjoy listening to Mike , he is a really cool guy as well.
Mike is twelve years old and lives in Germany. He started singing about two years ago and has made great progress in just a short time. Mike takes piano and voice lessons once per week, plus he has already writen and composed 21 songs of his own ( this was very impressive to me ). He writes songs about his life. When you listen to them ,pay attention to the words _ he tells a good story. He wrote one song called, ” All That For You ” _ a very nice song. Mike entered the Supertalent in Germany with that song but ,unfortunately he didn`t make it to the semi- final but, ” he said ” that the audience gave him a standing ovation but, one judge ” sadly” didn`t let him through. I learned from this that Mike has real determination and drive, because he didn`t quit like most would have . I don`t believe he will have any problem full filling his dream.
Mike enjoys other things apart from his singing. His other hobbies are cycling, football and skiing ( which he was gone on a skiing trip when I started writing this ) then comes his favorite hobby _” music of coarse he says” . There is no denying ,that music is his favorite, it shows he is having fun and enjoying it with each and every song he sings. They keep getting better and better. I know I sure enjoy listening regular to Mike and speaking with him. I have had the privilege to get to know Mike some and he has a great personality and an all around nice guy. I look forward to hearing from him as much as I enjoy hearing him sing. He goes to a Realschule school in Germany and is in grade 7 . His sister is starting to sing as well ” he says_ he is her idol” . He has great support from his family, his dad helps him record the videos and both his dad and mom help with everything he does. Support means alot to people like Mike_ that are tring to reach their dream. It helps to keep the imagination going to produce such wonderful songs the way he does. He most certainly has my support and I hope that everyone who listens to him, will as well . He has a new song that he has just recorded called ” Coming Home ” , this song is one he wrote and composed himself . It is an awesome song. Hope you will take time and listen at the top and ” Here In My Heart ” at bottom of artical. The visit Mike`s web site , be sure to sign his guest book…………. http://www.mikeboymaster.com/
Kropp Circle is made up of three brothers , Sebastian-17, Remington-15 and Emerson-13. They discovered their passion for music at an early age and since dedicated themselves to writing meaningful songs about life. These guys do a great job writing their own music , if you listen to the words they do say alot. Sebastian says , the words, music and the way it is arranged are important to us, and people matter , words count and the music breathes on.
Kropp Circle`s popularity is growing fast. They entered Radio Disney`s contest NBT ( next big thing ). This has given them a big boost in fan base around the world. Although they did not win, the UK has embraced the band and is one of the top five finalist in both rock and pop categories of the Poeple`s Music Awards. The track – Who We Really Are – is featured in the competition and has appealed to a wide range of music lovers.
Remington is the lead vocal and plays piano. He has a unique voice that can capture you before you know it. He presents a song with such heart and feeling_ that you can not escape , and want more. They are now taking care of that. They have started work on their debut cd, I have no dought it will sell fast. I am impressed with these guys , I believe they are going to go a long way. I put one of my favorites of theirs here , I hope you enjoy it.
Maddie is truely a magnificent vocalist . When I first listened to her ,I knew there was something special. Her voice was made for country music. Not suprising _ being born in Chattanooga ,Tennesse home of some of the best country singers around. Although she has a great country voice , she has no problem with pop, once you listen to her videos you will see.
She tells me that she began singing around three or four years of age, singing kareoke tunes for family and friends. when she was about five years old she would sing at the beauty salon for other customers , while waiting on her mother. Sometimes she would make as much as ten dollars singing for them and she has not stopped singing since. She has been taking vocal lessons for about two years and has two instructors one in Nashville , which she goes once a month and one in her hometown that she goes to once per week. One of her instructors suggested that she learn to play an instrument , piano or guitar. So she decided on the guitar ( I am sure she will do well ).
Maddie is also a fourth year member of the Chattanooga girls choir and a member of her schools chorus, has performed in the production of , La Boheme , with the Chattanooga Symphony and Opra in 2009, and would love to perform on broadway someday ( with Maddie`s talent I believe she will ). Musical talent runs in Maddie`s family , her great grandmother sang and played the guitar, her dad also plays the guitar and sometimes accompanies her playing and singing. As if all this wasn`t enough to keep her busy she also plays softball ( if she plays like she sings I feel sorry for the other team ).
Maddie`s singing is remarkable , she has passion , emotion and attitude all of this comes right out of her videos and grabs you. You can`t help but feel what she is singing, it brings a smile to her face and warms your heart. This young lady should be extremely proud of herself for what she has accomplished , it is truly remarkable. I know for myself once I heard her , I haven`t stopped listening. I have listened everyday_ and her singing Hallelujah_ is beautiful , I can`t even count how many times I have listened to it. I hope everyone takes time to listen ,you will not want to stop. Please take time to visit her fan site:
This little lady is a wonderful actress she can do so much. She can have you laughing one minute and crying the next. She is only 11 years old and has done so much in a short time. She has appeared in four tv shows and stared in one series on the Disney Channel _Cory in the House playing Sophie the president`s daughter. Madison was a regular on Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader for one season. This young lady has seven movies under her belt as well. A couple of my favorites was Mostly Ghostly and The Game Plan. In Mostly Ghostly, she plays one of the ghosts named Katie, in this movie she befriends a boy ( Max ) who`s family does nothing but makes fun of and picks on him. With Katie being a ghost doesn`t help Max much at first when Max`s dad and brother start seeing him talking to things that are not there ( Max is the only one that can see the ghosts ) . Later Katie and one of her ghost friends makes his family see the light. In The Game Plan she plays Payton along side Dwayne Johnson ( Joe Kingman ). Payton shows up at Joe`s door saying she is his daughter . But of coarse Joe doesn`t believe her until she pulls out a birth certificate. Joe is a selfish stuck on his self kind of guy. This starts a sort of tug of war between them. This is a very funny movie and in places it may make you shed a tear or two. ..Keep a look out for Madison`s new movie Free Style which releases in February I am sure it will be a great one as well…Check out the trailer for The Game Plan..
