Today’s mixed chick of distinction is inspired by American Idol. (They picked a new winner last night – Candice Glover!!!). Jordin Sparks is our Mixed Chick of the Day. She won the title in 2007 during the show’s sixth season at the tender age of 17. Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, her father, former NFL great Phillippi Sparks is African American and her mother Jodi is white. She has since gone on to launch two successful albums, star in several Broadway shows and made her film debut in Sparkle with the late Whitney Houston. She also made her foray into the world of beauty with the creation of two very successful perfumes. She is currently working on her third album and is happily in love with her long-term boyfriend fellow singer Jason Derulo. We love how poised, professional and humble Jordin is and wish her great success throughout her career. She is a Mixed Chick on the move!!!
