Jordin Sparks Signs Record Deal
American Idol Season Six winner Jordin Sparks, the show’s youngest winner ever, has signed to 19 Recordings/Jive Records, becoming the first Idol winner to join the label group. Her first single, “Tattoo,” will be released to U.S. radio on Aug. 27. Her debut album is due out in November. Jordin is the first artist to sign with the Zomba Label Group — all past Idol winners and runners-up have signed with the RCA Label Group’s J (Fantasia, Ruben Studdard), Arista (Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks) or RCA (Kelly Clarkson, Chris Daughtry, Clay Aiken) labels.
