After their break up, Sage, through his Instagram, begged Jason to come back to Jordan's life as she still loves him.

Jordin Sparks Using Her Platform Positively 

In the interview with Hallmark Channel, Jordin talked about her role, being a mother, and sickle cell disease. She started the interview by sharing her experience of being on mother. 

Jordin earned fame after she won American Idol, and she was just 17 years old when she got that success. 

The interviewer said people fell in love with Jordin as a child, and now she has become a mother; they wanted to know how she feels about being that. 

Jordin opened up that she and her husband were very happy about their son’s arrival and said their priorities changed after his arrival.

As parents, they want to do everything for their child, and she feels something else when she holds her son in her arms. 

She revealed that she has been taking her son to the studios with her since the day she had him on her belly. 

Her son is now in the growing phase, and he is discovering many things, so he keeps on touching everything around him. 

Jordin said that she took him daily in the studio, but now, as he is growing, she takes him once in a while because there are many wires, and she is scared it might harm him. 

Jordin then opened up about her family facing some difficult situations. 

She opened up that her stepsister Bryanna Jackson Frias had died of sickle cell disease, and after some time, her stepdad and granddad passed away in the same year. 

Because of those things, her family was having a really hard time overcoming them. She mentioned that her stepsister Bryanna was 16 years old when she died, and her death impacted her a lot. 

After her death, Jordin started a Generation S campaign where people would learn about Sickle cell disease.

As Jordin is a public figure, she is using her platform to make people educated about that disease. 

She has started a campaign where people can tell their stories about their battle with sickle cell. She wanted to make people know about that disease and be aware of it.

Jordin Gave Her Song To Ariana 

Jordin is one of the known artists in the entertainment industry. Recently there has been an ongoing controversy claiming that the famous singer Ariana Grande stole Jordin’s career from her. 

Jordin came to prominence after she won American Idol when she was 17 years making her the youngest singer ever to win the title. 

After that, she released her first ever album selling 2 million copies across the world. 

She was on the top, making other artists desperate to work with her. 

In 2012 she did her first ever movie Sparkler and her co-star was so amazed by Jordin’s talent that she even anticipated Jordan would be a big star. 

Jordin always preferred making clean songs, and because of the record, producers tried to make her sing more sexual songs, which she didn’t like. 

That thing became a problem in Jordin’s career. In 2013 R& B record labels released the song The Way featuring Ariana and Mac Miller, which was a massive hit. 

Jordin actually wrote the song, but the original song lacked the sensual tension, so the record producer asked Jordin to give that song to Ariana which she happily agreed. 

Jordin wrote that song, getting inspired from her relationship with Jason Derulo. Shortly after, Jordin left R & B labels and moved to another record. 

R&B claimed that Jordin left the labels because of her busy acting schedule, but it wasn’t the actual reason. 

It was known that he was trying to make Ariana the next R&B star, so they cut off Jordin. 

They wanted no competition for Ariana. Even the former producer of Ariana stated that Jordin is the blueprint behind Ariana's successful songs and career. 

While the others said that Ariana stole Jordin's as well as other black artists' careers.


Dana Jr.'s birthday is in May 2018. He is 4 years old now.
