Jordin Sparks made quite an impression on Monday, August 27 as she belted out the National Anthem during the opening ceremonies at the US Open in New York. She is known for her strong vocals ever since her “American Idol” days, and she certainly used them to sing her heart out to celebrate the occasion. The 22-year-old also sang one of the tunes off of the soundtrack from her new movie, “Sparkle,” which she starred in with the late Whitney Houston. The packed out crowd loved her and her music.
Sparks was easy on the eyes in a curve-hugging white crochet dress that showed off her trim figure. With her 50 lbs. weight loss recently, she looked amazing. She admitted that she lost the weight after working out and eating a healthy diet at her own pace she had set for herself. She is hotter than ever in both her singing and new acting career. The young singer was certainly excited right before the event as she tweeted, “Are you watching the #USOpen?? I’m going to sing Celebrate & the anthem! Tune into ESPN2!”
New Yorkers sure know how to put on a show. Along with Ms. Sparks, there were lots of fireworks, a light show, and even a giant video slide show that featured images of past US Open champions. It was a perfect time to celebrate the sport of tennis.
