American Idol sweetheart, Jordin Sparks, is about to hit Broadway in the Tony Award-winning musical In The Heights as Nina Rosario. Her run begins on August 19th and she's signed on for 12 weeks.

"I'm beyond excited! It's going to be a while new challenge for me. I'm going to do something I'm familiar with, which is singing, but I'll be doing it in a while different way, which is fun. I like to keep challenging myself and growing and learning new things, so this is going to be a really cool experience for me."

Sparks is not completely new to theater, she has had experience on stage pre-idol. "I did a lot of community theater and stuff in school before ';Idol,' and I had a lot of fun doing that. And Broadway will be a lot of fun because I'll be in one spot…and you start building relationships and the cast becomes your family and everything. I'm not opposed to doing Broadway again after this, but I guess we'll see after I do this run."
