Jordin Sparks took the world by storm when she won American Idol's sixth season at the age of 17 and went on to become a multifaceted celebrity with a prolific legacy in various entertainment domains. Her journey from a budding artist to an icon is emblematic of passion and perseverance.
The Arizona native wowed audiences with her captivating vocals and impressive artistry, but her career didn't take off until she was able to find the right team behind her. After she was signed by a major record label, her debut album and songs like "No Air" and "Tattoo" made it to the top of the Billboard charts.
Sparks then moved on to venture into acting and Broadway with notable roles in TV shows such as "The Suite Life on Deck" and "Big Time Rush." Her debut film role was the titular character in Whitney Houston's biopic titled, "I Will Always Love You."
Her second studio album, 2015's "Right Here Right Now", marked her move from pop to more of a fusion with R&B. Moreover, her personal life also saw several significant chapters as she went on to date singer Jason Derulo for three years and later married fitness model Dana Isaiah.
In addition to being an accomplished actress and singer, Jordin is a dedicated Christian who regularly attends services at the Calvary Community Church. She is a supporter of various charitable causes and has donated money to organizations such as the Phoenix Police Department.
