She sang the hit song "Tattoo," which sold over two million copies in the United States.
She became the youngest American Idol winner in history.
Its lead single, "Battlefield", reached number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, making Sparks the only American Idol contestant to have her first five singles reach the top 20 on the chart. In 2009, Billboard magazine ranked her as the 91st Artist of the 2000s Decade.
Following the release of Battlefield, Sparks branched out from recording music, pursuing careers in acting and Broadway, and designing perfumes.
Her father Phillippi Sparks was a former NFL defensive back for the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys.
In 2017, she started dating Dana Isaiah and they secretly tied the knot in July of that same year.
Since calling it quits on their romantic relationship last September, Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks have focused on their careers.
She previously dated fellow artists Jason Derulo and Sage the Gemini.
Jason Derulo makes an appearance on The Elvis Duran Z100 Morning Show at Z100 Studio on Friday (March 20) in New York City. “I want somebody that I can talk to and is kind like me and likes to have fun and try new things. I think when someone is beautiful, it comes in all shapes and sizes so in terms of looks, I don’t have a specific type.” Jason, who will be debuting his new music video “Want to Want Me” on Tinder tomorrow morning, said he’s not on the dating app.
The 25-year-old entertainer just revealed that he is dating again after splitting from Jordin Sparks last year. “I would [be on Tinder’ if it wasn’t so unpredictable,” Jason told about the dating app.
She made guest appearances on several television series, beginning with The Suite Life on Deck in 2009, and later in Big Time Rush in 2010.
That year, Sparks made her Broadway debut in the musical In The Heights, starring as Nina Rosario.
