Australian YouTube Sensation Jordan Jansen Discusses His Newfound Fame, His Fans & Impromptu Lunch Concerts!

In the age of Justin Bieber, YouTube sensations have begun to slow in shock value — yet pop sensation Jordan Jansen is causing quite a stir, both in his native Australia and here in the U.S., where he stopped to talk with HollywoodLife.com!

Jordan Jansen is only 13 years old, yet he has over 100,000 twitter followers, more than 11.5 million views on his YouTube channel, and a fan base that call themselves “Jordaneers.” During a recent trip to Los Angeles, the singing sensation took a break from his hectic schedule to discuss the crazy changes he has experienced since posting his first video nearly two years ago.

After entering a “talent quest” (the Australian version of a talent show in 1st grade), Jordan knew music was his passion. Although he got second place in the show, he was inspired to continue to pursue music and ended up winning numerous other singing competitions in Australia.

He put up his first YouTube video in 2006 singing Leonard Cohen‘s “Halleluja” and was greeted with much more than he bargained for. The video was uploaded for the sole purpose of allowing his relatives that lived in New Zealand the opportunity to hear him sing. The comments he received inspired him to continue to upload more videos.

Aside from the number of fans and followers Jordan has, he leads a normal life in Australia, enjoying science classes and giving the occasional lunchtime concert when fellow classmates (and fans) demand it.

He is currently at work on his first upcoming album and we cannot wait to hear it! Additionally, HollywoodLife.com can exclusively confirm Jordan has been signed by Toby Gad/Kite Records. Toby wrote Beyonce’s “If I Were A Boy” and Fergie’s “Big Girls Don’t Cry.” Not only that, we’re told he’s being managed by David Sonenberg of Das Communications, who also manages the Black Eyed Peas.

Congrats, Jordan! We’re proud of you!

I’ve been watching Jordan Jansen for about a year on youtube. He has talent and I hope he makes it big one day. Greyson Chance has more followers because he is already famous!

is it just me or is his story almost exactly like Justin Bieber’s? He has tremendous talent but his voice has some maturing to do but he’s only 13! He has an exciting career ahead of him and I wish him all the luck (but I still like JB more)

There is more to a persons success than the number of followers. Learn more about Jordon, and you will see why so many people has such respect for him. He is a first rate singer, and even more so, a fine caring human being.
