Jordin Sparks was presented by Mike and Ike Candy, this past Sunday night, at the Boston House of Blues. It was a small crowd. Perhaps game 5 of the NBA playoffs kept some ticketholders from attending? Maybe the date/venue change was a factor, as the show was originally scheduled for May at the Orpheum? It was a school night, so some parents might have kept their kids in? Either way, the voice and charm that is Jordin Sparks deserved a larger attendance. On her first headlining tour, she sang like she was in front of a stadium. A cute routine with her back-up singers/dancers kept Ms. Sparks moving back and forth across the stage. Her voice is truly a gift and her adorable personality shined throughout the performance.

Signed to Jive Records, Jordin Sparks has done a lot since winning American Idol. She has released two albums, won an American Music Award for Best Adult Contemporary Artist and was even nominated for a Grammy in 2009. The Battlefield Tour is being supported by special guest, Kate Voegele.

Speaking about Kate was Aaron from Norwood, “I saw her on One Tree Hill and I didn’t know she was a real artist, but I liked her performance. My friend helped me look her up, I bought her CD and it was really good.”

His friend Kherna was right up against the stage, “I’m here for both Kate and Jordin. I probably love Kate a little more than Jordin, just because I’ve heard her more and I saw her on One Tree Hill. I watched Jordin on American Idol.” She shared some of who she listens to, “I like everything from Green Day and Eminem to Shanya Twain and Carrie Underwood. I listen to bits of everything.”

Sharing some thoughts about Sparks was Jessica from Hanson, “I’ve loved her ever since American Idol. I have her second CD and I think she’s a really good role model. She’s really fun, her songs are catchy plus she’s really sweet.” Ashley was also part of the Hanson crew, “I preferably wish that Owl City was here again, but I loved the first band that opened. Days Difference. They were beautiful, very cute and I loved their sound. I’m all for the pop genre. Kate and Jordin are gorgeous and make great music.”
