Emulating the title of her newest film with her wonderful smile, Jordin Sparks attended the The Cinema Society with Circa and Alice & Olivia screening of “Sparkle” in New York City on Tuesday night (August 14).

The 22-year-old singer looked amazing in a fitted red dress matched with fiery pumps as she posed with Jodi Wiedemann, Carmen Ejogo and Tika Sumpter at the Tribeca Grand Hotel.

In a recent interview with Reuters, the former “American Idol” champ opened up about how the film saved her saying, “"'Sparkle' came at a moment where I was actually pretty unsure with what was happening in my career.”

Miss Sparks went on to add, "My label was going through a transition and people were let go. Then I parted ways with my management and then I had some things personally going on. It just felt like everything was starting to not work out all at once. I was like, 'This is it? Five years and that's it?"

The gorgeous young performer stars alongside the late Whitney Houston in the film, which arrives in theaters on August 17.
