There is a quote by Winston Churchill that reminds me of local singer and songwriter, Dana Jordan.

“Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about.” After seeing how excited she was when I spoke with her Monday, I cannot help but believe this is a quote that the Blue Ridge native lives by.

Dana was the winner of Greer Idol 2011 that earned her $1,500. Although she has been singing all of her life, she has focused on her talent – performing professionally, writing music and judging talent – as a profession since becoming the Idol champ.

On Friday, the country and blues inspired singer takes her talent to Nashville to audition at “The Voice”.

Her main focus was to inspire her daughter that regardless of age, everyone should take chances and aspire to be more. “God has given me a dream and also the tools to accomplish that dream. I want to follow that dream and be an example to women of all ages. I want to take Greer to Nashville with me. I want Greer to be proud of the chances I am taking. If I do well, maybe I can bring a little Nashville back to Greer!”

Dana is selling songs that she has written and is looking at several avenues in the music industry that will allow her to focus entirely on music.

Dana will leave on Friday for Nashville with the auditions beginning on Sunday. She has chosen to perform songs inspired by Etta James, Reba McIntyre and Martina McBride.
