Jordin thrilled about Broadway show

Jordin Sparks can't believe she gets paid to do what she loves.

The 20-year-old former American Idol winner has a singing career and is appearing in the production In The Heights on Broadway.

She revealed: "I walk in to the stage door every day and I'm like, 'I get to do this. This is my job.' I say that about music as well. I can't believe I get paid for doing what I love to do."

Jordin said time has flown since she won the TV talent show four years ago.

"It's gone by so fast that I have to literally sometimes tell myself to stop and think about it. Now I have my name on a dressing room on Broadway," she said. "How did I get from there to here so fast?"

Jordin plays 19-year-old Nina Rosario in the joyous, Latin-laced musical.

"I saw the show and I was just completely captivated. I'd never seen a musical that was so current. I fell head-over-heels in love," she said. "I literally did not take that soundtrack out of my CD player for four months."
