New York, NY (December 1, 2016) – Following a powerhouse performance at NBC’s Christmas In Rockefeller Center last night, JORDAN SMITH’s first holiday album, ‘Tis The Season [LightWorkers/Republic Records], holds strong in the Top 3 of iTunes Overall Top Albums Chart today. The chart-topping singer and the “best-selling artist in the history of NBC’s The Voice” illuminated New York City last night during the prestigious tree lighting at Rockefeller Center as he performed “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town”. Following his recent return to The Voice, ‘Tis The Season enjoyed a 699% increase at iTunes, capturing #1 on iTunes Holiday Album and Amazon Digital Album charts. Moreover, all of his tracks achieved a 1,000% increase on iTunes. Check out the stunning performance of “O Holy Night” from The Voice HERE.
It’s been a banner week for the vocalist. On Monday, he graced the stage at CMA Country Christmas and delivered his blockbuster rendition of the classic “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch.” Hollywood Life claimed, “JORDAN dominated the Christmas jam in a sultry, jazzy rendition,” adding “JORDAN offered the audience his signature long, Adele-like voice and his amazing personality.” Country Living went on to say, “JORDAN SMITH stole the show at CMA Country Christmas.”
JORDAN has absolutely dominated the holiday season. During his returned to The Voice, his label and coach Adam Levine surprised him with a special plaque commemorating his status as the “best-selling artist in the history of the show” with over 7 million tracks sold to date. He teamed with Amy Grant of “Grown Up Christmas List” for a duet of “Silent Night” on the Hallmark Home & Family: Home for the Holidays special. He appears on HARRY 12/6.
