“Rehearsals have been amazing and intense. I can’t express how excited I am to make my
Broadway debut with my new family In The Heights, ” said Jordin Sparks.
“It has always been one of my dreams, and it’s finally happening!”

20year old Jordin Sparks has been performing from a young age and stands alone as the youngest contestant to ever win “American Idol.” At the age of 16, she auditioned for the show and within a few months went on to win the hearts of fans and the Idol judges. She has since become a platinum and award winning recording artist. Her self-titled debut album was released in 2007 on 19 Recordings/Jive Records and went on to sell over 1.6 million copies worldwide and produced three Top 5 hits on Billboard’s Pop singles chart including: “Tattoo, ” “No Air, ” and “One Step At A Time.” Her sophomore album, Battlefield, contains the album title hit single and the bona-fide dance smash, “S.O.S (Let The MusicPlay).” Cumulatively, these popular singles have sold almost 9 million downloads/ringtones. Jordin has received American Music, People’s Choice and Teen Choice Awards as well as Grammy and multiple MTV VMA nominations. She has also toured extensively with Alicia Keys, The Jonas Brothers and Britney Spears and this summer just wrapped her first headlining tour.

This multi-faceted performer is also known for her philanthropy, which includes her own project, the I’m M.A.D. Are You? campaign as well as other charitable efforts. Jordin has recently teamed up with the nonprofit organization, After school Alliance and Quaker Chewy Granola Barsto help bring quality after school programs to kids. Sparks is lending her voice to the Quaker Chewy Afterschool Rocks campaign to help raise awareness of the importance of afterschool programs. Parents can visit www.QuakerOats.com/afterschoolrocks to download Jordin’s playlist to energize after school activities through music. The Quaker Chewy Afterschool Rocks Campaign will help 25, 000+ afterschool programs nationwide get access to additional vital resources.
