LOTD: Jordin Sparks for bebe inspired

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

So the movie Sparkle debuted in the US a few weeks ago and it stars American Idol winner Jordin Sparks.  I never really watched the show, but I think she has a good voice and lately she has been everywhere with her new svelte, healthy body!  This is also the last movie done by one of the greatest voices of our time, Ms. Whitney Houston!
