Jordin Sparks is off to Broadway.
The season six winner of American Idol is the latest finalist to land a role on stage, following in the talented footsteps of Clay Aiken and Constantine Maroulis, the latter of whom was even nominated for a Tony Award.
Beginning on August 19, Sparks will star in In the Heights, a musical set in the Dominican-American community of New York's Washington Heights. She'll play the character of Nina Rosario for 12 weeks, through November 14.
In January, former High School Musical star Corbin Bleu debuted in the lead of the play. He's received sold reviews for it.
