Here is Whitney Houston’s final song and sneak peak at her fourth and last time on the big screen.
This is the premiere of “Celebrate” by Whitney Houston and Jordin Sparks, a track from their upcoming flick, Sparkle.
“Sparkle”, which is scheduled to hit theaters in August, is set in 1976. Whitney plays the mother of three daughters who rise to fame in the music industry, but face challenges when the family begins to fall apart. Jordin plays one of her daughters.
In a recent interview with Out Magazine Sparks says although Houston had already passed by the time she first heard the song; Whitney’s enthusiasm shined through her lyrics.
Jordin said, “it was one of those out-of-body experiences because she sounds so happy and you can feel the joy when she’s singing.”
This is the premiere of “Celebrate”, and “Sparkle” is slated to open in theaters nation wide on August 17th.
