Three words to describe Jordin Sparks: genuine, bubbly and good-natured.
It has been a busy summer for Jordin Sparks but the genuine and super talkative songstress took time out of her schedule to attend the Starkey Hearing Foundation’s “So The World May Hear Awards Gala” at River Centre on Sunday evening in St. Paul, Minnesota, a foundation that has become an important part of her life for the past couple of years now.
We spoke with Jordin Sparks about her involvement with the Starkey Hearing Foundation and how she feels about the death of singer Amy Winehouse.
Of her involvement with the Starkey Hearing Foundation, Sparks told us, “I actually have been involved with Starkey Foundation for about 2 1/2 years and it is just one of those things that I come and I find out something different that I didn’t know before. But for me though, music is my love and I wouldn’t know what I would do if I couldn’t hear music and it would just make my world totally dark. So being a part of this, being able to bring hearing to somebody else is amazing.”
As for the loss of Amy Winehouse, Jordin said, “I have her Frank album and Back to Black album. I really like Me and Mr. Jones. That was a great one and Tears Dry On Their Own…It’s one of those things that makes you realize that life is too precious and not to take anything for granted. I hope that she is at peace and I hope that her family is doing okay.”
