After almost two years of being stuck inside with no social events to go to due to the pandemic, the Daytime Beauty Awards finally returned to the Taglyan for their 3rd annual ceremony. The audience, made up of VIPs, celebrities and notable professionals in the beauty and medical industry were relieved to be out again celebrating Science behind, beauty health and wellness.
Jordin Sparks joined the presenter lineup which included Regina Hall, Cheryl Hines, Kurt Rambis, Halston Sage and more.
The American Idol star and Grammy nominated singer was all smiles as she took the stage, accepting Outstanding Achievement in Health on Paula Abdul's behalf.
"Like most of you, I haven’t been out much. But this award is so important because it deals with health.. And as we all know, health is your most valuable asset. This woman we are about to honor is a dear friend, a super talented artist and in great shape," Jordin Sparks said on stage.
With Paula being a no-show at the award ceremony, Sparks added, "As we all know, these are trying times. Paula wanted to be here today, but unfortunately she could not join us in person. I accept this award on her behalf."
Founded by Michele Elyzabeth, the award show recognizes science behind beauty and spotlights health and wellness professionals in the fields of dentistry, medicine, health and fitness, aesthetics, skincare, color and styling, cannabis, beauty innovation and more.
