Whether he wins the singing competition "The Voice" or not, Christian contestant Jordan Smith is undoubtedly a star in his own right already.
The Season 9 finale of "The Voice" is set on Tuesday, Dec. 15.
According to CBN, the 21-year-old college student from the small town of Harlan, Kentucky, who belongs to coach Adam Levine's team, almost managed to topple Adele from the top spot on iTunes after he sang Queen's "Somebody to Love" during the semifinals on Wednesday night.
When asked about Smith's performance, Maroon 5 frontrunner Levine answered, "I don't need to say anything at all because that's one of the best things I've ever seen in my entire life."
But aside from his amazing vocal skills, what sets Smith apart from the other contestants of "The Voice" is his devout Christian faith.
"I love to lead worship and my parents really encouraged me to sing in church," shared Smith. "My faith is who I am and I wanted to share that with the world," he said during an online interview for DJ Chuang of "Spinning Up Disruptive Ideas."
There has been a ton of pressure involved as a contestant for "The Voice," and there are so many things that he had to learn and overcome. But because of his deep love for God, Smith said he was able to find clarity amidst all of these things.
"My faith is the thing that gives me strength and that I find joy in. At the end of the day with my problems and concerns, I can turn to God and I can have peace in my situation. That's been the main thing that's carried me through this. My relationship with God has kept me grounded and has been my foundation through all of it," he explained.
And no matter who wins Season 9 of "The Voice" on Tuesday, Smith said he is not the least bit worried about his future because he remains optimistic at all times.
"This platform has opened so many doors for me and has allowed me so many opportunities to make music in lots of different ways," he said. "At this time, I'm just waiting prayerfully and doing my best. Whatever happens, I know I will continue to make music and lead worship wherever I go. While my future is unsure at this moment, I know who holds the future, and I will continue to move and trust in God's plan for me."
