On January 9th, Broadway’s biggest belters celebrated the best-selling Canadian music artist in history, Celine Dion, in an evening of epic power ballads and classic pop tunes at the hot NYC cabaret spot 54 Below. The starry cast included Jeremy Jordan (Newsies, Smash), who brought his considerable vocal prowess to the enormous pop aria, “It’s All Coming Back To Me.”
Not only does Jordan’s voice soar through the piece, he brings the right balance of humor to moments letting you know he doesn’t take himself too seriously. We, however, take Jeremy’s uber-talent way serious.
The writer of the song, Jim Steinman, had this to say: “As I wrote and produced the song for Celine – I’m very impressed and pleased with Jeremy’s ability to scale the Olympian operatic heights and imbue it with humor, seamlessly! All in all, brilliant!! And thank you.”
By the way, Jeremy co-stars with Into The Woods star Anna Kendrick in the upcoming film adaptation of the cult musical favorite The Last 5 Years, which will be released in theaters and VOD February 13.
Watch him belt it out below.
