With the ‘Sparkle’ movie premiere less than two months away, Jordin Sparks has been thrust back into the spotlight and she is truly making the most of it. Last evening, the underrated singer hit the stage on the ‘American Idol’ finale results show to perform ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ with Hollie Cavanagh and dazzled the crowd with her voice.
Sparks also performed at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards last weekend. In a special tribute to the late Whitney Houston, she belted ‘I Will Always Love You’ before presenting the icon’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, with the Billboard Millenium Award.
Watch Sparks on ‘Idol’ below:
It is such a shame that Sparks hasn’t been more successful since winning ‘American Idol’ because she is a fantastic singer. She understands her voice and her sugary tone would sound perfect on a catchy Pop single.
However, Sparks has not crafted the right material and her label simply doesn’t know how to market her. She tried to imitate Beyonce with ‘I Am Woman’ but that flopped and she even tried Dance/Pop with ‘S.O.S. (Let the Music Play)’ but that also tanked. Yet, do you know what she hasn’t tried? Sparks hasn’t tried being herself and as soon as she embraces her true talent, her audience will finally connect with her music.
