She later switched to communications and found her voice as a performance artist. She has worked steadily as a performer since 1993. She has performed as a soloist and with her band in clubs, concert halls and outdoor festivals all around Chicagoland. A natural storyteller, in her spare time she has been fine tuning a one-woman show, A Great Big Diva, which she first performed in December 2017 at City Winery. Last summer she and the band performed at one of Evanston’s 2018 Starlight Summer Concerts. Ms. Jordan has a soft spot for Evanston and still keeps in touch with many of her friends from her Northwestern days, saying “Coming here feels like a homecoming.”
