Angelina Jordan is a new up and comer that has recently made her way onto our radar, and the moment we heard her voice for the first time, we got goosebumps! Her talent is incomparable to anyone we’ve ever heard before- she is in a league of her own, and all we can say is look out world! Angelina is taking you by storm.
The 15-year-old (yes, 15! We can’t believe it either!) rose to international fame when she won Norway’s Got Talent at only eight years old! (We know we’re impressed, too!) She’s known around the world for being a vocal powerhouse, and now, for having some of the most poetic and sentimental lyrics of any singer-songwriter. Her social media presence is equally impressive as she’s racked up over half-a-billion YouTube views, just shy of 2 billion Facebook views, and has garnered praise from Time, CNN, BBC, and People.
Lucky for us, she made her official debut in November with a new single titled ‘Million Miles,’ and you may want to grab your tissues and take a seat because it’s a tearjerker. Angelina wrote the song about losing her grandpa, but it resonates deeply for those of us who have lost someone (or more than one someone) equally as important to us- parents, friends, siblings, cousins, grandparents, etc.- it represents them all. Let’s also talk about the breathtaking, piercing visuals. She looks woeful yet captivating as she adventures about reflecting on her favorite memories with her grandfather and singing over an intoxicating, soft piano.
“He said I’m watching you from the moon
I’m everywhere, see everything you do
I can’t see you but I know you’re here
It’s like you’re in my tears
I think what he’s given me: the smiles and the memories
but now he’s not here to hold my hand
In the light of the blue sky I’m not alone to fight
I’ll never regret what I do”
“‘Million Miles’ is about losing someone you really love. I wrote this song thinking about all the great memories I had with my grandpa and how much it hurts to lose someone. This song is very personal to me, because I had never felt the feeling of losing someone before I wrote this.”
“We’re a million miles apart
is pulling my heart
like an empty bobble to be thrown
Now I can’t make it stop
but I know in my heart
I know that I’m never alone“
