THE VOICE Star Jeremy Rosado Signs Contract With Capitol: ‘I’m Just So Thankful To God’

By Movieguide® Contributor

THE VOICE Season 21 finalist Jeremy Rosado recently announced that he is signing a contract with Capitol Christian Music Group.

“Signing with Capitol is a dream come true!” the singer told The Christian Post. “It’s been a decade since I started pursuing this career, so many years of ups and downs, so to be here now feels unreal!”

“We could not be more excited to welcome Jeremy Rosado to our roster,” Brad O’Donnell and Hudson Plachy, co-presidents of Capitol CMG, said in a statement about the signing. “He’s an incredible vocalist with a rare talent and powerful story. We can’t wait to start putting his music out into the world and believe big things are ahead for him.”

Rosado has been hard at work on his upcoming album, and will hit the road as an opening act for Newsboys this fall. 

“I’m just so thankful to God; He has far surpassed anything I could think or imagine, and I can’t wait to see where He takes me on this journey!” Rosado shared. 

Rosado competed on judge Kelly Clarkson’s team. Before leaving THE VOICE, Clarkson told him, “Whatever your next move is, Jeremy, I have no doubt that gospel music, Christian music, is going to wrap their arms around that beautiful, God-given talent that you have.”

Rosado is not the first VOICE alum to go into Christian music. Movieguide® previously reported

In 2015, Jordan Smith won season 9 of NBC’s THE VOICE and has since grown to become the best-selling artist in the show’s history.

However, fans who watched Smith’s original audition on THE VOICE, where he wowed judges with his rendition of “Chandelier,” will remember his singing roots began in the church of his hometown, in rural Kentucky. Recently, the pop singer announced his first Christian single and hopes to release a full album to honor God.

“It’s really special for me to take this moment and say back to the Lord, let everything I am declare your glory, to help tell your story, the story of your Gospel. Let everything I am point the world back to you,” Smith told The Christian Post.

The song is called “Great You Are” and is Smith’s first explicitly Christian song which he co-wrote with Jeff Sojka and Matt Armstrong.

“When we wrote this song … I knew it was special. But I didn’t take a moment and stop and think about how special it was for me as an artist and the journey that I’ve been on since ‘The Voice,’” Smith said, adding later: “It’s really special for me to be able to have the moment to return my gift to the Lord and to point the glory back to Him. We are all just that; we’re just reflections of God’s love to the world.”

“The song itself just says, ‘Everything I am I lay it down here at your feet, and I’m returning this to you,’” he added.

In Smith’s success, he notes that his relationship with God has always been a priority.

“My entire life changed really quite literally overnight. That caused me to really have to lean in and lean on the Lord, because in myself, you don’t know how to handle that. You don’t know how to handle the attention, you don’t know how to handle the opportunity, you don’t know how to handle the platform,” Smith confessed. “It really enhanced my prayer life and my trust in the Lord because I had to lean on him and not my understanding. I had to lean into His peace, and I had to lean into praying for His will in my life and using His wisdom.”

Smith also shared plans for an upcoming full-length album centered on Christ.

“I have a lot of new songs. I have a whole project that’s pretty much ready to go, and this is just the first of many,” Smith said. “So I’m really looking forward to continuing in the same direction as ‘Great You Are’ with a full project and getting that to you very soon.”
