.- The latest American Idol winner, 17-year-old Jordin Sparks, is outspoken about her Christian faith and a pro-life advocate, reported LifeSiteNews.com.

Several photos have circulated online of Jordin participating in pro-life and Christian events. One in particular, which allegedly originated from Jordin’s MySpace page, shows Jordin holding the poster of a stop sign with the words “Stop Abortion Now”. Several other photos show Jordin performing at a 2006 pro-life rally in Phoenix.

Jordin’s artistic career began in the realm of Christian music, singing at her home church, Calvary Community Church, and at Christian festivals. In 2004, she finished second at the Music in the Rockies competition for aspiring Christian musicians. She has also toured and recorded songs with several well-known Christian artists.

On the American Idol website, Jordin says she “prays and breathes” before she goes on stage. She also says if she were to win she would thank God and her parents before anyone else.

Pam Wiedmann, Jordin’s grandmother, was interviewed about her granddaughter in January by the Arizona Republic. She told the newspaper that Jordin’s "faith is so important to her, and she wants to maintain that throughout this whole process."
