Biography

Jordin Sparks was just 17 when she won American Idol. It was the best training ground she could have hoped for. “I didn’t know it when we were doing the show, but all the interviews and behind-the-scenes stuff prepared me for now. Being on Idol was exciting, exhilarating and slightly traumatic. I won the show I was a fan of, what could be better?”

In the four years that followed, Jordin released two albums: her self-titled debut went platinum, selling over 2 million copies worldwide, with the first three singles going top 5 and the album’s second single, No Air, selling 4 million digital downloads.

Jordin’s second release, 2009’s Battlefield, debuted on the Billboard Album chart at #7.

The Arizona native has toured with Alicia Keys, The Jonas Brothers, New Kids On The Block/Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears, she has performed for Presidents Bush and Obama, was chosen for a GOT MILK? ad, won two BET Awards, one American Music Award, one People’s Choice Award and has been nominated for two MTV Awards and one Grammy. In June 2010, she kicked off her first headlining tour.

The ingenue debuted as Nina Rosario in the Tony award-winning musical In The Heights in the fall of 2010. Jordin has guest starred on Disney’s The Suite Life on Deck and Nickelodeon’s Big Time Rush.

In the Fall of 2010 Jordin unveiled her first fragrance, Because of You. Jordin also wants to give back to society. She represents the I’m M.A.D., Are You? campaign. “Making A Difference” means finding your passion and channeling that energy into helping others. Get "mad" about litter on the side of the road and donate time to a clean-up program, or get "mad" about sick children in hospitals and take time to visit the them at a nearby hospital.

In the summer of 2011, Jordin Sparks was featured on the cover of People Magazine’s Summer Double Issue: Most Amazing Bodies, sang the theme song for the Disney film African Cats, released the hot dance single, I Am Woman (which became the theme song of the WNBA), and joined New Kids on the Block/ Backstreet Boys as a special guest on their North American summer tour. She just released You Gotta Want It, featured on the NFL's Official Gameday Music of the NFL, Volume 2.

2012 is proving to be even more exciting as Sparks makes her feature film debut as Sparkle in the SONY Pictures film by the same name in August.
