Jordan Anthony

Coming from Perth, Western Australia, Jordan has had an ear for music and a passion for singing from a young age; he wrote his first song at the age of 7.

Jordan has since developed his skills on the piano and continues to write music he then performs by busking on the streets of Perth. About his passion for music, Jordan says, "Music for me is the ultimate form of expression. When people listen to my songs, I want them to relate and, happy or sad, know that they are not alone".

About his song We Will Rise, Jordan said: "When I started writing [my song], it was after my time on The Voice Australia. I was feeling in a really negative place, feeling overwhelmed at school and at home. This song is about knowing that those times of doubt and struggle will pass and there is hope. We just need to draw upon the strength within and from those around us and know that your time will come and ‘We Will Rise’."

Jordan thinks having the ability to perform one of his songs on the world stage is unbelievable. "Obviously to win would be amazing but to inspire young people with my music is the ultimate achievement."

Lyrics of We Will Rise

You know that I’m around
To light you up in the dark
You can fight another round
No this won’t tear you apart

Don’t give up
We will not back down
We will stand up proud
Don’t lose heart
Even in the pain
You gotta try again

Rise
Higher and higher
Up from the fire
Rise
Out of the shadows
Into hope
Rise, rise, rise
We will rise, rise, rise

I see you marching on
Your day has finally come
Lifting up that winner’s crown
You’re setting fire to the sun

Don’t give up
We will not back down
We will stand up proud
Don’t lose heart
Even in the pain
You gotta try again

Rise
Higher and higher
Up from the fire
Rise
Out of the shadows
Into hope
Rise, rise, rise
We will rise, rise, rise

When the days are long
And the nights are cold
I will shine my light
We’ll be brave and bold
When the nights are cold
I’ll be by your side

Rise
Higher and higher
Up from the fire
Rise
Out of the shadows
Into hope
Rise, rise, rise
We will rise, rise, rise
