Jordin Sparks Set for Broadway Musical 'In the Heights'


Jordin Sparks


The 'American Idol' singer will begin her 12-week stint in the Broadway musical 'In the Heights' in August this year.

Jordin Sparks is set to fulfil a lifelong dream this summer (10) - she's joining the cast of Broadway show "In the Heights". The "No Air" hitmaker, who will play college student Nina Rosario, begins her 12-week stint in the musical in August and admits she has always longed to take the New York stage.

She says, "It's always been one of my dreams to perform on Broadway. This is a brand new experience for me. I look so forward to spending time in New York City and joining this talented cast and my favorite new musical."

Sparks, the winner of "American Idol" in 2007, is the talent show's latest contestant to join a Broadway company - Constantine Maroulis received a Tony nomination for his role in "Rock of Ages", while Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo are currently starring in "Hair".
