Jordan’s competitive nature began at a young age. Sports and music ran on parallel tracks for the Loganville, Georgia native. "My dad’s from Chicago, a big Cubs fan and baseball is lifeblood up there," Jordan says. "So me and my brothers were raised with that and I was infatuated with it from a young age. I played from the time I could hold a ball up until I was about 16. My dad’s also a pastor and sang a little bit – he'd lead a special song one Sunday a month.
