Rising fame

McLaughlin opened on Kelly Clarkson's My December Tour beginning in October 2007, a role announced on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on August 7, 2007. He has also toured extensively with similarly styled and popular singer-songwriter, Sara Bareilles.

He recorded a trio with Jason Mraz and Van Hunt for the Randy Jackson duets-album Randy Jackson's Music Club, Vol. 1. The track title is "Something to Believe In".[5]McLaughlin's "Human" is also heard in TV Promos for CBS series' Flashpoint.

In June 2008, McLaughlin premiered his newest single "Beating My Heart" on the radio, released to mainstream radio on July 22, 2008,[6] prior to being sent to Hot Adult Contemporary (Hot AC) on June 10.[7] "Beating My Heart", first single from his second studio album OK Now, out October 7, 2008, is available with the rest of the album for download on iTunes and Amazon. The song was praised by Billboard single reviews editor Chuck Taylor, who wrote that "It's high time for singer/songwriter Jon McLaughlin to earn his due." following with a description of the song as "a joyous uptempo romantic romp, featuring hook after hook, from tinkling piano to driving percussion and a start-and-stop bridge, alongside a joyous effortless vocal that soars with falsetto to the high heavens. The accompanying video is simple enough, but effectively illustrates McLaughlin's charms as a palatable sex symbol. "Heart" pumps with instantaneous hit potential, and proper promotion of it could propel the artist to superstar status."

He co-wrote "Falling Over Me" with Demi Lovato for her second album Here We Go Again. It was originally supposed to be a duet, but instead, his vocals are just heard in the background. He also co-wrote "Every Time You Lie" on the album, in which he plays piano on.

In 2008 Jon McLaughlin appeared as himself in the film Enchanted starring Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey singing "So Close", which led to a performance at the 2008 Academy Awards. In 2010 the song was used in Disney California Adventure's World of Color show.

In late 2008 various mash-ups of his song "Smack Into You" began to appear. These mixes pair BeyoncĂ©'s vocals alongside McLaughlin's, creating a beautiful duet. The original version of the songs were written and produced by The-Dream. Various videos receiving more than 100,000 views.[8]

His song "We All Need Saving" has appeared on an advertisement for the TV Show The Event. As of May 2009, McLaughlin is working on a new studio record, writing songs.[9]
