Pro-life supporter & American Idol Winner Jordin Sparks to sing at Super Bowl

She's just a rookie, and already Jordin Sparks is going further in the NFL than her father. Only 2 1/2 months after the youngest "American Idol" winner released her debut album, the teen is set to perform the national anthem Sunday at the Super Bowl. In nine years as a pro cornerback, pop Phillippi Sparks never reached the big game.

"I said, 'Dad, I'm singing at the Super Bowl,'" she said Thursday. "He said, 'At least one of us made it.'"

No surprise about which team she'll root for when the New York Giants play the New England Patriots. Her dad spent all but one season with the Giants.

"There definitely is a tie with them," the 18-year-old Sparks said. "I got to go for the underdogs."

Sparks considers herself a "huge, humongous football fan."

Here's some more information about Jordin Sparks that you'll find interesting. Jordin is both a Christian and a pro-lifer, who wears a purity ring, which is her pledge that True Love Waits, or that she will remain pure and chaste for her husband on their wedding night. Jordin sang along with Alveta King at Arizona's Right to Life 2005 conference.

According to Wikipedia, "Sparks is a committed Christian and attends Calvary Community Church in Phoenix, Arizona. On her American Idol biography, she thanks her parents and God for her win. .. She endorsed Michelle Buckman's Christian novels for teens: Maggie Come Lately and My Beautiful Disaster."

Michelle Buckman is a talented Catholic writer and a member of Catholic Writers Online.

I didn't know that Jordin Sparks is pro-life and wears a purity ring. That's awesome! It makes me respect her even more.
I'm so sick of hearing about celebrities who are completely devoid of morals. It's good to see that some have a clue about what is right. Perhaps they'll rub off on some of the wild, crazy, sinful behavior of other famous people. We can always hope.
