Jordin Sparks is officially back in business after her vocal cord injury — and here’s the picture to prove it.

Not only has last year’s Idol winner rejoined the Alicia Keys tour, but this sneaky snap on the set of her new video shows her positively glowing with good health.

The 18-year-old had to drop out of her support slot on Keys’s As I Am North American tour on April 18 after her vocal cords started bleeding.

But after her doctors ordered her to take a week of complete vocal rest (meaning no singing, talking or even laughing!) Jordin was back on stage for the Minneapolis date on Wednesday.

Over the weekend our cameras caught her beaming while she filmed a new promo, believed to be for the next single from her self-titled album, in Los Angeles.

The teenage from Phoenix, Az., has reason to smile, since she has admitted that if the hemorrhage hadn’t been treated early, her career could have been over less than a year after her AI win.
