Singer and Valley native Jordin Sparks made a subtle statement during her powerful rendition of the national anthem at Monday night's game between the Arizona Cardinals and the Dallas Cowboys.
Written on her hand was "Prov. 31:8-9," a reference to two Bible verses in the book of Proverbs.
"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy," is what those verses say in the New International Version of the Bible.
