Throughout her career, Sparks has won numerous awards, including an NAACP Image Award, a BET Award, an American Music Award, a People's Choice Award and two Teen Choice Awards.

Sparks branched out from recording music, pursuing careers in acting and Broadway, and designing perfumes. She made guest appearances on several television series, beginning with The Suite Life on Deck in 2009, and later in Big Time Rush in 2010. That same year, Sparks made her Broadway debut in the musical In The Heights, starring as Nina Rosario.

After a five-year solo music hiatus, Sparks released her first mixtape titled #ByeFelicia, on November 25, 2014.
