2007 winner of the hit show, American Idol, Jordin Sparks has paid a visit to Ghana. She was part of the delegation of President George Bush and First Lady Laura Bush to Ghana.
Jordin joined Mrs Bush at the Maamobi Polyclinic, where the First Lady donated a number of treated bed nets to some local female traders in order to help combat the scourge of malaria in Ghana. She sang “Amazing Grace” to the durbar of chiefs who had gathered at the venue to give audience to Laura Bush.
Jordin hoped that the gesture by the American First Lady would help fight malaria. “Traveling to Ghana with Malaria No More gives me the incredible opportunity to see for myself what a difference a simple mosquito net can make in the life of a child,” said Sparks. “I’m so proud of the millions of American Idol fans who helped save lives through last year’s Idol Gives Back. I hope that my own fans will learn along with me as I discover more about this devastating disease and the simple steps we can all take to make malaria no more.”
