As you know we conducted an interview with American Idol winner Jordin Sparks a couple of weeks ago, to promote her first headlining tour. We were also able to catch the show* this past week at House of Blues, and I’m comfortable saying Ms. Sparks is one of the most energetic live performers I’ve ever seen…and I’ve seen many, many concerts. (On a side note: I love that her lead guitarist is a tiny Asian woman, who wore tight, tight tight leather pants!)
Jordin performed all of her hits and most of the tracks from her latest record, “Battlefield.” A diverse crowd sang along to all the songs, and ate-up the energy and enthusiasm this young performer exuded. Don’t believe me? Just check-out the opening number, the amazing title track from her current CD:
Like I mentioned, all of Jordin’s hits were performed (so much better live than the album versions, which are already amazing), including one of my favorite songs:
If you’ve never paid attention to Jordin Sparks, I have to say you are truly missing out. I urge you to YouTube any of her videos or check-out some of her songs on iTunes. This is a wonderful artist; America was smart to vote for this gal!
