Jordin Sparks was all smiles as she was announced as Student Ambassador for the People to People Ambassador Program at Camart Studio in New York City today (June 13).

The program offers educational travel opportunities for students, athletes, educators, and professionals. With nearly 50 years of experience, more than 500,000 alumni, and destinations on seven continents, People to People is the world’s most recognized and respected educational travel provider.

Meanwhile, Jordin is making headlines after she recently took a Toronto man from the karaoke stage to center stage.

CP24 has the details:

Kwame Hills, a 28-year-old Scarborough native, will now forever be known as the man whose voice swooned American pop star Jordin Sparks.
Sparks made an appearance on New.Music.Live on Wednesday ahead of her show at the Air Canada Centre. When she heard that Hills often sings her song “No Air” at karaoke night, she asked to hear him sing right then and there.
Once Sparks heard his smooth vocals, she invited him to sing the song on stage with her Thursday night.
“It was a combination of crazy adrenaline, where I was so excited about what was about to happen, and then a blinding fear,” Hills said Friday afternoon in a sit-down chat with CP24.com. “But then (at the show) I just pulled apart the curtain and stepped out in front of the crowd and gave it my all.”

sounds like it might be a good thing for Jordin but it might mean a delay on the album coming out and promo for the single. unsure.gif

ROME —

American Idol Season Six winner Jordin Sparks announced this morning that she will join a group of 14 Rome Free Academy music students and their teacher this summer on a tour of several cities in Europe.

The trip, arranged through People To People Ambassador Program and is being billed as "Rome to Roma with Jordin Sparks" and will include stops in Venice, Vienna, Florence, Paris, and of course, Rome, Italy.

Here's what Sparks posted on her Twitter this morning:

"So excited I can finally tell you... I'm going to Europe with a group of rockin' students as a People to People Student Ambassador. Going to see castles, art, eat, shop!! Can't wait to meet up with the Rome Free Academy peeps I'm going with. Fun will be had! grin.gif"

A video on the People To People website, shows Sparks surprising RFA students. Walking into a classroom during a photo shoot, students react with wide open mouths and eyes, gasps and huge smiles.

The website for the tour includes biography information and photos of all of the local students who will be participating, and their teacher, Twyla Edwards.

Check back later for the full story.

This is a great article,good answers from jordn's part.i really like the fact she's looking for a coach & learning about acting,i hope everything will end up the best for her in all she'll do because she deserves it.she is such a wonderful person and a very hard worker.

Jordin Sparks on How She Got Her Bikini-Ready Body.

Jordin Sparks is making the most of her summertime: She's performing live on the U.S. Capitol's West Lawn for PBS's A Capitol Fourth (July 4, check listings) and was named a Student Ambassador with People to People Ambassador Program. That means she'll be traveling the globe with a group of lucky students to help broaden their horizons and multi-cultural perspective.

"It's an amazing opportunity," Sparks, 21, told Parade. "These kids deserve it and I absolutely love kids. I only get to take one person and I'm taking my younger brother since it's his last summer before he starts college. It's going to be a good brother-sister trip and I'm really excited!"

The American Idol alum also talked about what she thinks of this past season's finalists, how she got into amazing shape, and the possibility of an acting career.

Do you still get nervous before big performances?
"It kind of depends on the day. If I have less sleep I am probably less nervous than if I got a whole night's sleep. But for the most part, I tell myself to breathe. I also tend to pray before I go out onstage. 'Please let me not forget the words' or something and then I walk out."

What’s your tip to American Idol contestants on how to have a successful career after the show?
"I just feel lucky that five years later I'm still touring and people still want to talk to me. For me, I just keep going and say yes to things that I think are going to be really important. I don't want to get bogged down saying yes to things just because I can. I want it to mean something. Trying to keep your head on straight and having a good foundation and base back at home and around you is key."

How did American Idol prepare you for the entertainment industry?
"When it first came out, I think people were skeptical of it and saying [the contestants] weren’t paying their dues, but everyone takes a different path. Not everyone has the ability or means to just walk into a label or by the off chance get discovered at a coffee shop. For me, it just happened to be American Idol. I didn't know it was going to be that, but I'm glad it was. I don't think anything could fully prepare you for the Hollywood world, but if there is anything that is the most similar to that world, American Idol is definitely it. You do everything from media training to cutting songs to learning how to dress your body because you have to pick up your outfits. It's boot camp."

What do you think of Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina?
"They are both incredibly sweet and there is an instant camaraderie between contestants. We're the only ones who know what it's like to go though that so it's an instant connection. They are both going to be fine and they're both super talented."

How are you getting in even better shape for the summer?
"Now that I've started on the road, my set is about 30 minutes and it's literally non-stop. I never stop moving and singing, so I get tons of cardio and activity. I also go to the gym and do circuit training. My friends that are here, like my hair guy, he'll come down with me and run along with me. But just doing a little bit of circuit, doing some reps for biceps, triceps, doing abs. I don't like being in the gym for an hour- I just can't do it- so I go in there and hit it hard. Right now, the show is helping keep me the way I am."

Are you at your goal weight?
"I'm good! I just need a pedicure real bad."

Your single is great. Is that what we can expect from your album?
"I recorded songs before I found 'I Am Woman' so if we use those, we will probably have to tweak them so it's cohesive. When I find the second single, I hope it's in the same vein [as 'I Am Women'] where you want to pump it up!"

You appeared on Broadway last year. Any future acting plans on the horizon?
"I hope so! I'm hoping that after the tour I can focus more on acting in the fall. Getting with a coach and honing in and focusing on that part of my artistry. Then go on auditions and things like that. I love playing different characters."

That is a really good article, but I really think that her second single should be a little bit slower than I Am Woman. Most people are not too familiar with Jordin's up-tempo side, and I think that she needs to bring this side out gradually, instead of releasing so many up-tempo songs that mostly end up flopping. having said that, I am very excited for her album!
