Angelina Jordan: – She does this today

Many Norwegians remember her as the little barefoot girl with a big, unique singing voice. Angelina Jordan (16) touched the whole of Norway when, as an eight-year-old, she sang to victory in “Norwegian Talents” in 2014.

– I always feel older than I am

In 2020, she was back on the TV screen, and was mentioned as a big favorite in “America’s Got Talent: The Campions”. A whole world opened her eyes to her unique voice, and she reached the final of the competition.

But who exactly is the young girl with the big voice, and what is she doing today?

It was artists like Billie Holiday and Louis Armstrong who inspired Jordan from a young age. In 2014, Jordan’s mother, Sara Astar (38) told Good Morning Norway that her daughter started singing when she was very young.

– When she was five years old, she told me that she wanted me to enter her talent competitions, Astar said at the time, before the daughter herself said that she would show off her talent.

Jordan moved to the United States five years ago and continues to work on music. Today she lives in Los Angeles. She recently shared the photo above on her Instagram profile, which has over 270,000 followers.

Angelina Jordan’s career

Despite his young age, Jordan has already managed to create a career many can only dream of.

First and foremost, she won “Norwegian Talents” when she was only seven years old and went all the way to the top in “America’s Got Talent: The Campions” six years later.

The same year she won “Norwegian Talents”, a lot happened in the young star’s life. Among other things, she sang “What a wonderful world” for peace prize winners Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi, and performed the same song on the American talk show “The View”.

In 2019, she was invited to sing at the conference “Brilliant Minds” in Stockholm in front of guests such as Barack Obama (60) and Michelle Obama (58), as well as the Swedish Crown Princess couple Prince Daniel (48) and Crown Princess Victoria (44).

– It was fantastic to sing for such a great man as Obama. I had a little conversation with him, where he said, “Thank you for what you do.” He asked me “how do I do it”, and then I just replied that I do not do anything special, but that I just want to spread love with my music, Angelina Jordan told VG after singing in front of the former president.

But Jordan is not “just” a unique artist. In 2015, when she was nine years old, she published a book she has written herself. “Between Two Hearts” is based on a true story from Jordan’s own life, about two young girls who live completely different lives. In the book, Jordan recounts how she met a poor, orphaned girl in the Middle East.

By the way, Jordan’s grandmother, artist Mery Zamani (61), was responsible for the illustrations in the book.

Why is Angelina Jordan performing without shoes?

Many have asked themselves why the young singer always performs barefoot, and she reveals this in her book.

– When I was around six years old, I saw a little girl my age. I gave my shoes to her, because she had scars on her feet, and it was very cold, she said, according to E! News, and added:

– So every time I stand barefoot on stage, I am reminded of all the children who do not have parents, clothes or shoes. She is always in my heart.

Here she refers to the young girl she met in the Middle East at the time many years ago.

“She gave the girl her shoes and vowed never to wear shoes on stage again until all the children in the world have shoes,” it says on Angelina Jordan’s official website.
