Sparkle Movie Trailer Starring Whitney Houston

Watch the Trailer For Whitney Houston's Final Movie, Sparkle

It's been almost a year since Whitney Houston's tragic passing, but her legacy continues to live on in her music and film. Her final project, Sparkle, which is available to buy now, is a combination of both of those elements: the film stars Houston as a former professional singer who stands by as her three daughters (including Sparkle, played by Jordin Sparks) in their quest to stardom in the 1950s. They succeed in forming a girl group, but of course they run into the typical perils that go along with fame.

Though the film is a remake of a 1976 film of the same name, it also feels a lot like Dreamgirls to me. Still, seeing Whitney in something new pulled on my heartstrings a little — especially when she shows off her signature pipes. It's also fun to see Cee Lo Green looking practically unrecognisable in one of his first film roles. Check out the trailer and weigh in when you read more.
