Life and career
Jordana was born on 15 September 1992 in Toulon, to French parents of Algerian descent. She grew up in La Londe-les-Maures with her older sister and younger brother. Both of her parents are French of Algerian descent.
At the age of sixteen, Jordana decided to audition for the seventh season of Nouvelle Star in Marseille, and managed to convince the jury with her version of Louis Armstrong's What a wonderful world. She finished in third place. After her elimination, she signed a record deal with Sony Music and released her eponymous debut album on 29 March 2010. It sold 10,169 copies in its first week and managed to enter the French SNEP Album Chart at #9.
Although Jordana's debut single Non Non Non (Écouter Barbara) was only released as download single in France, it peaked at #3 on the French digital chart. It also charted at #3 in Belgium and #48 in Switzerland.
Jordana participated in a song for the album So in Love by Nouvelle Star judge André Manoukian in April 2010.
Jordana was interviewed and played several songs on the TV5Monde programme 'Acoustic' on 7 November 2010.
On 27 November 2015, Jordana participated together with Nolwenn Leroy and Yael Naim at the national memorial day for the victims of the November 2015 Paris attacks singing the song “Quand on n'a que l'amour” by Jacques Brel.
