In October of 2009 Josh Jordan’s dad, Bro. Fain Jordan, passed away unexpectedly. It was shortly thereafter, while struggling with shock and a great sense of loss, the Lord allowed Josh, his wife Randa, and their three boys to hear the single “Dealing With Gold” by the Inspirations while driving down the road one evening. Through this song, the Lord brought great comfort to their family and touched their hearts deeply. It quickly became a favorite of the entire family.
After purchasing the album in its entirety, the Jordan children – Hutch, Alex and Grant – quickly started singing along with each of its tracks. “Inspired by the Inspirations,” Josh and Randa like to say, they realized that this was a great opportunity to start a family group. They began by learning the boy’s favorite track, “Dealing With Gold” and from the first time they stood and sang it in church, the response was overwhelming!
The rest, as they say, is history!
The Jordan Family Band represents something that few people witness in today’s gospel music scene: a complete family unit singing, playing, and ministering together. The Jordan Family is members of New Town Baptist Church in Calhoun, Ga.
