Mother And Son's Chilling 'Human' Duet Performance

Mother And Son's Chilling 'Human' Duet Performance

If you’re not yet acquainted with Jordan Rabjohn and his mother, Katherine Hallam, you’re in for a treat as you watch this mother and son’s chilling duet performance of ‘Human.’

From Sheffield, England, 29-year-old Jordan began recording and uploading his music to social media several years ago. However, before that, he appeared on the televised auditions for The X Factor in 2017, impressing Simon Cowell and the other judges with his “catchy original song and punchy performance.” 

In May 2020, Jordan and Katherine recorded one of their early duets. They sang Andra Day’s ‘Rise Up’ in an effort to brighten the lives of those suffering during the dark days of the pandemic. The video has been viewed 5.3 million times since it debuted!  

Here, they sing a stunning rendition of Christina Perri’s song ‘Human.’ The acoustic performance relies only on the guitar Jordan strums with ease and their two beautiful voices. With perfect pitch and inflection, Jordan sings “I can do it” three times before Katherine belts out the most recognizable line of the tune. It’s a shame that Instagram videos are so short because we are left wanting the rest of the song! 

Written by Christina Perri and Martin Johnson in 2013, ‘Human’ addresses the frailty and vulnerability of us humans. The song, recorded and released later that year, entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart at #90 and peaked at #31. 

Here are four lines from a chorus of ‘Human:’

But I'm only human

And I bleed when I fall down

I'm only human

And I crash and I break down

Both Katherine and Jordan have recorded solo albums, as well as a duet album. If you’d like to hear more duets by these two human, yet heaven-sent talents, check out their performances of ‘Hallelujah’ and ‘Shallow.’     

On dark and difficult days, it’s a relief to find comfort and inspiration in the music of artists like Jordan and Katherine.  

“The peace of God is much greater than the human mind can understand. This peace will keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7
