Born on December 22, 1989, this Phoenix, Arizona native is the daughter of NFL quarterback Phillippi Sparks.
She launched her career as the youngest winner of American Idol in 2007 when she was just 17, which came on the heels of a print ad in Seventeen magazine as a model for Torrid clothing.
Sparks also became the first Idolchamp to sign with J Records - the label that Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake call home.
Sparks has publicly stated that she plans to remain a virgin until marriage, and has worn a promise ring since she was 13.
The singer's second CD, Battlefield, is set for release in July 2009.
