Jordin Sparks to Join Alicia Keys on Tour

by at . Comments

This can only help American Idol winner Jordin Sparks get noticed:

The young singer will open for Alicia Keys on her As I Am tour of North America. The concerts kick off April 19 in Virginia and wrap up June 18 at New York's Madison Square Garden.

Singing Sparks

Both artists have had songs on Billboard's Hot 100 recently: Keys ''No One'' hit Number-one, while Sparks' ''Tattoo'' peaked at number-eight. Many consider Alicia to be the most talented R&B crooner out there, so this ought to be major exposure for Jordin.
