Former Idol winner, Jordin Sparks made an appearance at the Sparkle premiere yesterday (August 14) in New York wearing a beet red alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet frock with pointy heels to match the dress. The Battlefield singer revealed her slimming figure as she has already shed a whopping 50 lbs all thanks to dedication to excercise.
In an interview with US Weekly, “It’s just better eating and working out! It’s definitely a daily thing.” said Sparks. Her choice of fitness is the latin inspired dancing form , Zumba. It was a natural choice for this singer as she preferred hitting dance steps as opposed to lifting weights. “I started with walking then went to jogging and then Zumba.” Sparks added.
Sparks has a lot to celebrate with the weight loss and landing herself on the cover of Shape magazine which is a personal success for the star and an emotional turnaround for the 22- year-old. “I thought, ‘I did it!’ I had to walk back to my dressing room and . . . pull myself together because I was overwhelmed. I cried. I shed a little tear.”
Yesterday the star happily tweeted “The premiere 2night in NY was amazing! Emotionally drained after…but in a good way! Love all my cast mates!
@sparklemovieout FRIDAY! :D”
The story is set in the 1960s where three musically inclined sisters form a group and reach stardom through Motown and the famed sisters go their separate ways after reaching new heights with their musical careers.
