Jordan Feliz Joined by TobyMac and Terrian on ‘Glorify’ Remix
by Ginny McCabe
TobyMac and Terrian have joined Jordan Feliz on the remix of his song “Glorify.” The song will be featured on Feliz’s third, full-length project, which is due to release early next year from Centricity Music.
“I don’t know if I’ve ever been as excited for a song as I am for this one,” said Jordan Feliz. “Glorify means ‘praise and worship,’ but the sub-context of the word actually is to acknowledge and reveal the majesty and splendor of God by one’s actions. For me, coming out of this hard season of anxiety, stress and messed up priorities, now all I want my life to do is to glorify. I want to reveal the majesty of God by my actions.”
Feliz, a Gold-selling, Dove Award-winning pop recording artist and songwriter, released the digital, original album version in May, and “Glorify” became the No. 1 most added track at Christian radio in June. “Glorify” follows a string of No. 1 and top-10-charting songs like “Witness,” “Changed” and “Faith” from Feliz’s Billboard-charting No. 1 Top Christian Album, Future.
In the vein of soulful acts like Earth, Wind & Fire, Al Green and Sam Cooke, the R&B-tinged “Glorify” features a full gospel choir backing Jordan’s recognizable falsetto. Feliz wrote the song with Jordan Mohilowski and longtime collaborators Colby Wedgeworth and Paul Duncan. Together, Wedgeworth and Mohilowski also co-produced the track.
“Before we started working on new music, I started asking the Lord to give me something to say, and I felt like He just said, ‘Say everything that’s on your heart. Say everything that you’ve been through. Be as vulnerable as possible. Tell the world the thing that you’re terrified to tell the world,’” said Feliz. “I think sometimes the things you’re scared to bring to people are most likely the most impactful.”
Spending his COVID-19 quarantine time in prayer mode, especially focusing on Psalm 91, Feliz said, “Our world is fearful, for good reason, but the beauty in all of this is that Jesus is still on the throne and in control of all of this. What an amazing time to reveal the majesty of our God and for believers to come out of the woodwork, donating their time and encouraging people by speaking life and truth over them.”
Feliz became a household name when his first radio single, “The River”—the title track from his critically-acclaimed debut—quickly became a hit. Spending an unprecedented 12 weeks at No. 1, the chart-topping single was named ASCAP’s “Christian Music Song of the Year” and the song garnered Feliz his first Gold certification. Feliz, a California native, has been nominated for five Dove Awards, and he took home a trophy as 2016’s “New Artist of the Year.” Feliz has toured with TobyMac, for KING & COUNTRY, Matthew West, Michael W. Smith and Crowder, among other top names in Christian music. For the latest news, go to www.jordanfeliz.com.
