THURROCK musician Jordan Gray is one of the borough’s best kept secrets.
But that all may be about to change as she is set to appear on BBC1’s The Voice this Saturday.
Jordan’s appearance has already been splashed all over the national newspaper with the headline: "THE VOICE could be the first British talent show to have a transgender winner, with singer Jordan Gray tipped to go far".
Jordan (aka Talldarkfriend), who was born male but is in the process of transitioning, will sing Bob Dylan’s Just Like A Woman on Saturday’s episode.
YourThurrock has known Jordan for almost ten years. In 2007, this reporter went down to her then home in Tilbury and was blown away with the songwriting skills in a song called Honey I’m Home.
Since then there has been many a twist and a turn in Jordan’s career and Saturday may well not be the last!
Good luck to Jordan on Saturday.
In the meantime, here is Honey I’m Home
