Limelight Spotlight: Alexis Jordan

Alexis Jordan - Columbia Records

Having hit-making production duo Stargate (Rihanna, Ne-Yo, Beyonce) back you is great. Having Jay-Z on board is even better. But none of this matters if you don’t have the talent to do these guys proud. Meet Alexis Jordan, the 17-year-old wide-eyed belter who has that daunting task.

And it looks like she’ll do just fine. Jordan has a powerful voice, mature beyond her years. Perhaps that’s because she’s been singing longer than she’s been speaking, and honing her songwriting skills while other kids were being told not to eat the paste.

It was that voice that took the southern belle  from her home in South Carolina to California to pursue her dream and landed her on Simon Cowell‘s America’s Got Talent by the age of 14. Although she didn’t win AGT, she got enough experience on stage — and one hell of a confidence boost when Cowell told her, “You’re an amazing singer” — to take with her into her bright future.

Now, not even three whole years later, Jordan is prepping her Star Roc/RocNation debut album, which promises be sonically diverse, mixing many genres, while showcasing her tremendous vocal talent. Her first single, “Happiness,” captures the best of both of these worlds. Stargate offers a pulsating dance beat, while Jordan takes turns cooing over it angelically and diving into a rich, full voice belt. “Happiness” is exactly what you’ll feel while listening.
