Daniel Brantley, the manager of 99.9 FM, announced that the interview with Ms. Giordano will also be streamed live on the station’s website ( in its entirety. 

“Jade’s fans range from very young kids to adults and seniors and military veterans and it was important to us that they be able to hear this exclusive event anywhere in the United States,” said Mr. Brantley. “Jade will talk about her career, her album and the events in her life that have helped to shape such an interesting story.” 

Fans will also be able to call in and ask Ms. Giordano questions on the station’s hotline: 614-5553.

“Jade gets compared to singers like Carrie Underwood for her vocal skill but she is truly an original who is saying something you don’t hear on the radio a lot these days,” said Mr. Brantley. “The kids won’t fall for something fake. They want the real thing and Jade is totally authentic.” 

Mr. Brantley noted that Ms. Giordano often remains after her concerts to sign autographs, talk and even pray with her fans.
