Song welcomes listeners to singer’s space, where songs are companions to those who will embrace them
Leslie Jordan’s name “has become synonymous with meaningful and groundbreaking worship music,” her team said. The Nashville-based singer-songwriter and worship leader unveils new songs, starting with "Great I Am," available now. The song welcomes listeners into her space – where songs become companions to those who embrace them. It's the first release from Jordan's upcoming project, “All I Need To Know,” out July 22.
"Great I Am" offers a sound of peaceful folk, where soft songs and strong messages are carried by Jordan’s clean and warm vocals. The song was initially written in 2019 in YWAM Kona, Hawaii, when she collaborated with YWAM's local team to craft songs for its community.
A press release noted, “After appearing on YWAM Kona Music’s 2021 live album, "Great I Am" transcended its missionary context and stuck to Jordan for its simplicity and the way it reflects who God is, not just his greatness but his nature, too.”
With this new version of "Great I Am," Jordan hopes to serve more people.
"I believe in songs for the church, because the church isn’t only on Sunday morning and Wednesday night,” she said. “I think it's in the car with your kids. I think it's at a funeral for someone that you've lost that you love deeply. I think it’s at the top of a mountain that you've climbed or in the valley you’ve laid down in."
"Great I Am" marks a new beginning for Jordan, not only musically, but as an inspirational figure in the worship sphere.
She is a creative artist living with her husband and son just outside of Nashville. For 10 years, Jordan served on staff and led worship at an eclectic church just south of Nashville, which was made up of a large portion of artists; and from 2010-18, she comprised one-half of the Grammy Award-nominated duo All Sons & Daughters.
Jordan is currently one of the Integrity Music Publishing staff writers and also co-founded the Nashville-based nonprofit The Fold, where she now serves as executive director.
