Kelly Ripa: Jordin Sparks “Sparkle” Interview
Originally from Phoenix, Arizona, Jordin Sparks shot straight into superstardom when she won the sixth season of “American Idol” at the age of seventeen. She is currently the youngest winner in the show’s history. Jordin’s first, self-titled album, is certified platinum and spawned the biggest hit of her career, “No Air,” as well as several more hit singles. Jordin has released two other albums, and also toured with the likes of the Jonas Brothers and Britney Spears.
In addition to her singing career, Jordin has also embarked on an acting career, and has appeared in both film and television. Jordin’s latest film is called Sparkle, a remake of the 1976 film about an all-girl singing group during the rise of Motown in Detroit.
Jordin plays an aspiring singer from Harlem, New York, who faces difficulties at home while she tries to launch a career in music. The musical film will mark the last appearance of the late singing legend Whitney Houston, who passed away three months after filming ended.
On “Live With Kelly” August 14, Jordin will chat with the hosts about starring in the highly-anticipated Sparkle.
