Kicking off the holiday season in Dallas, platinum recording artist Jordin Sparks took part in the 24th annual Children’s Medical Center Holiday Parade on Saturday, Dec. 3. Sparks contributed to the magic of the parade by making an appearance and performing a special song.
As the youngest-ever winner of “American Idol,” Grammy-nominated Sparks is well known for her chart-topping hits including “No Air,” “Tattoo” and “Battlefield.” Sparks recently wrapped up her tour with the Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block, is currently a mentor in the new, singing-competition TV show “Majors & Minors” and is working on her feature film debut in the upcoming movie, “Sparkle,” also starring Whitney Houston and Mike Epps.
At the parade, Sparks sung “The Cure,” a song off of her latest album “Battlefield,” which is actually the theme song for Children’s Medical Center’s original dramatic documentary series “Children’s Med Dallas,” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNPO4EyXtaM) which aired on WFAA-Ch.8 this summer.
The Children’s Medical Center Holiday Parade, co-presented by Capital One Bank and Pizza Hut Inc., is an award-winning annual holiday tradition that drew in more than 350,000 people to downtown Dallas. Sparks lead this year’s nationally syndicated parade with five special Grand Marshals that were featured patients from Children’s.
