Jordan Smith’s Emotional Performance of “The Climb”

Jordan Smith, winner of the ninth season of The Voice singing competition on NBC, closed out our January 29 event in New York with an emotional rendition of Miley Cyrus’s “The Climb.” The song’s lyrics — about obstacles and overcoming them despite great odds — resonated with our audience of families and supporters. Jordan, who once told a reporter “that it’s OK to be different than people expect you to be and not fit the mold,” is himself an example of MDA’s new ethos of “Living Unlimited,” and his serenade felt perfectly in tune with that theme.
