The Voice's Jordan Smith is wasting no time after his triumphant win. Smith, who took out Season 9 of the TV talent show, has just announced the release of his album debut Something Beautiful. This is his first effort through a newly-forged collaboration with Republic Records and Lightworkers Media.
For this new album, Smith is working with hitmakers David Foster and Stephan Moccio. Foster is the producer for Madonna, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion and Josh Groban.
