American Idol 2007 winner Jordin Sparks will be teaming up with pop singer Jesse McCartney this summer for a 17-major city U.S. tour.

The Jesse & Jordin Live tour is scheduled to begin on August 5 in Sacramento, CA and finish up on August 30 in Greensboro, NC. Both artists share platinum-selling status and have hit songs with Sparks’s “Tattoo” and “No Air,” her duet with pop star Chris Brown, and McCartney’s “Leavin’.”

Sparks recently received an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding New Artist as well as a BET Award for her smash hit single “No Air,” also nominated for Choice Love Song and Breakout Artist on the upcoming August 4 Teen Choice Awards, airing on Fox.

McCartney, formerly of boy band Dream Street, recently released his third studio album, “Departure” where he teamed up with The Dream, Sean Garrett, The Clutch and J. R. Rotem. He also co-wrote Leona Lewis’ number one hit single, “Bleeding Love.”

“I am really excited to be going out and sharing the stage with someone as talented as Jesse McCartney,” Sparks said in a statement. “He brings a soulful voice, heart of gold and his good looks to the stage every night, and I can’t wait to share it with him.”

McCartney has also been nominated as Male Artist on the Teen Choice Awards.

Sparks was forced to cancel a handful of shows on Alicia Keys’s 30-date As I Am tour, including the tour’s April 19 opener, due to throat problems.
