Jordin Sparks

Only 22 years old, Jordin Sparks already has enough career experience and mainstream media exsposure to rival many longer-established stars. Winner of the sixth season of American Idol, her self-titled debut album was released in 2007, with another best-selling follow-up in 2009. Now, she's poised to jump to the big screen with her feature film debut in the musical Sparkle opposite the late Whitney Houston.
