What Inspired Jordin Sparks to Return to Making Music

About three years ago Jordin Sparks chose to take a well-deserved break after grinding nonstop since winning American Idol in 2007.

She went through a pair of very difficult and public breakups, but she has since married her husband, Dana Isaiah. They had a child this spring, which has reinvigorated her and inspired her to get back to making music.

She tells Billboard her newfound happiness has tapped into a creative well.

She says it’s a “never-ending, deep, deep love that you don’t even realize is emanating from you.”

Dana and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary last week. We made it! Lol I remember our conversation about wanting to wait about 2 years to start a family & how we were mapping out our lives...boy, did God have other plans. I look at this photo & I can’t help but smile & thank God for throwing a monkey wrench into everything. I wouldn’t have it any other way. DJ is the best thing that’s ever happened to us. These two are my world. Those smiles get me every time. In awe that what God has in store for me is always better than anything I could ever imagine.🧡 What plot twist has been placed in your life that turned out to be the biggest blessing? #psalm37four PS-@_danaisaiah, you’re an amazing husband & father babe. Thank you for loving us the way you do! 📸: @reymarkable_p
