Coming from Perth, Western Australia, Jordan has had an ear for music and a passion for singing from a young age; he wrote his first song at the age of 7.

Jordan has since developed his skills on the piano and continues to write music he then performs by busking on the streets of Perth. About his passion for music, Jordan says, "Music for me is the ultimate form of expression. When people listen to my songs, I want them to relate and, happy or sad, know that they are not alone".

About his song We Will Rise, Jordan said: "When I started writing [my song], it was after my time on The Voice Australia. I was feeling in a really negative place, feeling overwhelmed at school and at home. This song is about knowing that those times of doubt and struggle will pass and there is hope. We just need to draw upon the strength within and from those around us and know that your time will come and ‘We Will Rise’."

Jordan thinks having the ability to perform one of his songs on the world stage is unbelievable. "Obviously to win would be amazing but to inspire young people with my music is the ultimate achievement."

Lyrics of We Will Rise

  • English
You know that I’m around To light you up in the dark You can fight another round No this won’t tear you apart Don’t give up We will not back down We will stand up proud Don’t lose heart Even in the pain You gotta try again Rise Higher and higher Up from the fire Rise Out of the shadows Into hope Rise, rise, rise We will rise, rise, rise I see you marching on Your day has finally come Lifting up that winner’s crown You’re setting fire to the sun Don’t give up We will not back down We will stand up proud Don’t lose heart Even in the pain You gotta try again Rise Higher and higher Up from the fire Rise Out of the shadows Into hope Rise, rise, rise We will rise, rise, rise When the days are long And the nights are cold I will shine my light We’ll be brave and bold When the nights are cold I’ll be by your side Rise Higher and higher Up from the fire Rise Out of the shadows Into hope Rise, rise, rise We will rise, rise, rise
