Jordan Hill

Jordan Hill (born on April 17, 1978 in Knoxville, Tennessee) is a female pop singer who started her career in the mid-'90s. She was described as "the next Mariah Carey."

She has been performing since she was young, singing in community musicals. By the time she was about to start high school, Jordan was eager to pursue her music career and move to Los Angeles.

On a one-year basis, Jordan and her mother moved to L.A. while her dad stayed behind in Knoxville. Once she was settled, she attended L.A.'s Hamilton Academy of Music while singing in the school choir, a local gospel choir and maintaining her club gig schedule.

In 1994 while Jordan was performing at the Le Mondrian Hotel in Hollywood, she was invited to sing at a special party at the house of David Foster. She ended up being signed to David's record label, 143 Records.
In 1995, Jordan released her debut single "Remember Me This Way" which peaked at #80 on the Billboard Hot 100 and appeared on the "Casper" movie soundtrack.
A year later in 1996, Jordan released her self-titled debut album which peaked at #20 on Billboard's Heatseekers Albums chart.
The lead single "For The Love of You" peaked at #66 on the Billboard Hot 100, #40 on Billboard's Rhythmic Top 40 chart, #9 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart and #52 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 12 weeks.
The follow-up single "How Many Times" was only released in Europe. It's unknown how or if the single charted.

The third single, a cover version of the Bee Gees' song, "Too Much Heaven" was also released in Europe. Once again, it's unknown how or if the single made the charts.

Due to lack of promotion and support, Jordan left the label.

In 1998, Jordan was featured on the song, "Love Shouldn't Hurt" featuring artists such as All-4-One, Michael Bolton, Stephen Bishop, Bobby Caldwell,  Gregory Curtis, Laura Davis, Owen Elliot, Olivia Newton-John, Emmanuel Officer, Stephen Stills, Chris Stills, Richard Stites, Tamia, Ann Wilson, Carnie Wilson & Wendy Wilson.

In 1999, Jordan appeared on Jim Brickman's album "Destiny" on the title song.
These days, Jordan is still active in the music business and working on a new album scheduled for release sometime this year.

In 2012, Jordan released a cover version of Stevie Wonder's "Someday at Christmas" which managed to peak at #11 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart. The single is available on iTunes along with her cover version of "This Christmas."

This is a crazy old post, but I just found it -- did you know that Jordan has an album coming out this year? She is finishing up the mixing right now (actually, she is in Philly doing just that TODAY!) :)

And that pic of the cassette doesnt look a darn thing like her! How crazy!
