Christian singer Jordan St. Cyr’s music career is taking off after one of the “toughest, hardest” seasons of his life.
Cyr, whose eponymous album was released last month, recently shared with CBN’s Faithwire the powerful inspiration behind his music, his path to success — and his family’s harrowing journey navigating his 3-year-old daughter Emory’s health struggles.
The “Fires” singer said he has long had a passion for music but that his current trajectory in the Christian music industry was set seven years ago, when he committed to solely sing about Christ.

“It was really when I kind of gave my future, my career over to Christ,” Cyr said.
After singing about every other topic, he proclaimed, “OK, I’m done. The only thing I want to sing about is Jesus.”
Now, he’s topping the Christian music charts as God guides him along an incredible journey.
Cyr also spoke about the tough lessons he and his family have learned as they navigate Emory’s illness and the difficulties that often come along with it.
“She has this condition called Sturge-Weber syndrome, an overgrowth of blood vessels on the left side of her face and head, which kind of web over the left side of her brain, stealing blood away from that side,” Cyr said.
The condition comes with seizures, risk of stroke, ambulance rides, and difficult emergency room visits. But through it all, the singer said God has been faithful.
Watch Cyr share about his life and career:
“We’ve been given such a new perspective of pain of suffering and how God walks you through. It’s been a hard but beautiful last few years,” Cyr said. “[It has] revealed such a depth of compassion that we didn’t know existed. It has been a trial, and it has just been such a difficult season. Our hearts have broken in so many ways.”
Despite the difficulties, Cyr said the perspective he and his family have gained throughout the trials has been transformational.
Here’s more on Emory:
“We would not change it because the gift that has come — the perspective shift of what pain and suffering and the biblical view of pain and suffering in our lives has just been radically changed for the good,” he said. “And we’ve just watched what God has done through this little girl already, and we’re blown away.”
