21 Questions with Jordan Feliz

Since @Jordan Feliz first ascended the radio charts with “The River,” he’s been cranking out smash after smash. His most recent No. 1 hit, “Jesus Is Coming Back” — which features @Mandisa and @Jonathan Traylor  — continues his tradition of crafting colorful pop jams filled with moments of hard-hitting truth while living out his God-given calling that ultimately led him to Music City. The California native drove across the country on faith and little else, knowing he was called to steward songs for a bigger purpose. That risky move to Nashville eventually paid off in the form of a recording contract and tours with TobyMac, Matthew West and others. Sealing his commitment to writing songs that point people to Jesus, Feliz’s latest album, Say It, communicates everything that’s on his heart in this season.
