–Jordin Sparks & David Archuleta throw up peace signs at the Allstate “X the TXT” Event at the Jordin Sparks Experience in Miami on Wednesday. The an annual charity gala for Sparks Charities is being hosted in conjunction with the 2010 Pro Bowl and Super Bowl in Miami.
The “X the TXT” event is to promote the stop of texting and driving, something that Jordin is very passionate about. She shared back in November, “I am really passionate about this issue and am so thrilled to have an ‘X the TXT’ event at the Experience. The event is focused on encouraging people to make a difference in their communities and families. By pledging not to text and drive we can save thousands of lives – choosing to not pick up the phone and keeping your eyes on the road can be the difference between life and death.”
The event featured performances by Jordin and fellow “American Idol” alum David Archuleta, plus appearances by Jason Derulo, Larry Fitzgerald, Albert Haynesworth, Lou Ferrigno, Nir and more. At the event, teens and their families were asked to add their thumbprints to a banner as a public pledge not to text and drive. Those who signed the pledge received thumb bands they can wear as a reminder and symbol of their pledge. Jordin and Jodi have proudly worn their bands since making the pledge in November.
