Jordin Sparks: The American Idol Hopeful

at . Comments

Jordin Sparks is no stranger to fame. Her father, Phillippi Sparks, played professional football for a number of years.

Family connections remain a significant part of this American Idol hopeful's life - her maternal grandmother, Pam Wiedmann, is the singer's manager.

Sparks, Audition

Sparks auditioned for both American Juniors and Star Search in 2003, before appearing on America's Most Talented Kids twice in 2004 and winning on her first appearance.

Finally, just like other Idols before her - such as Carrie Underwood - Jordin Sparks is a national anthem soloist, performing for various teams, such as the Phoenix Suns, the Arizona Cardinals, and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
