On the official Junior Eurovision Song Contest YouTube page, Australia announced who will represent the island nation at JESC in Poland this year.
Jordan Anthony is a 14-year-old singer from Perth, Western Australia. Anthony will be the first male vocalist to perform for Australia at the junior contest. He first rose to prominence as a member of Delta Goodrem’s team on the eighth season of Australia’s version of The Voice. He made it all the way to the final show, ultimately placing fourth.
“All I’ve ever wanted to do is just share my music with as many people as possible,” Anthony says in the video, “and to be doing that on the world stage is a dream come true.”
He also explains in the video what the slogan of JESC 2019 means to him:
“The theme this year for Junior Eurovision is ‘Share the Joy,’ and I think it’s an amazing message. I’m always about spreading light and love with everyone always, and I definitely want to convey that message through my song as well this year.”-Jordan Anthony
