Jordin Sparks , the youngest winner of American Idol , is making her Broadway debut tonight in the Tony Award-winning In The Heights .  Sparks will play the role of a college student named Nina Rosario.  Sparks' performance is a limited 12-week engagement through November 14th.

The "No Air" hit-maker told BET.com, "I am so unbelievably excited to make my Broadway debut tonight. It's something I have talked about since I  was little and the fact that it is happening for me is surreal."

Lin-Manuel Miranda , the creator of In The Height s, recently told Playbill.com, "Jordin is an undeniable talent and an incredibly versatile performer. When she came in to audition for the creative team, I knew she'd be able to sing the role of Nina (and does she ever). I was not prepared for how winning and honest an actress she'd be. I can't wait to see her tear it up with the rest of this amazing company."

Congrats to Jordin!
