Charismatic Jordan Smith rocked the world week after week on The Voice, praising God with hymns that soared to the top of secular music charts.
As the winner, "the most important person ever" to be on the reality singing competition is now using his platform to glorify God.
"(My parents) really instilled in me from a very young age just growing up how important it was not only to be a good person but to be a person who is full of the love of God and to pour that on to other people," Smith tells Saddleback Church's Rick Warren.
"I've grown so close to the Lord and try to walk with Him every day and try to direct my thoughts toward Him because He's been so good to me," Smith says.
And Smith isn't leaving his relationship with his Savior in the dust. Watch the video to see what the singer wants to do for God in the future.
