FIRST LOOK: Whitney Houston Back on Screen, in Sparkle


It’s been more than 15 years since Whitney Houston starred in a big Hollywood movie – 1996’s The Preacher’s Wife – and while fans may be rejoicing about her return to the screen in the upcoming Sparkle, the happiest person of all seems to be the pop diva’s costar, Jordin Sparks.

“She was so cool and very motherly toward me,” says the former American Idol winner, 22, who marks her film debut in the remake of a 1976 movie that originally starred Lonette McKee and Irene Cara. “If I ever looked like I needed something, here she came saying ‘Are you okay?’ “

“Part of the fun of making this movie is definitely the costumes and the hairstyles,” says the star, 48. “The movie is set in 1963, and we had a great wardrobe, hair and makeup person and I loved wearing the outfits.”

The film, which chronicles the challenges faced by group of singing sisters once they hit it big, is due out Aug. 10, 2012 (7 months from now) and costars Derek Luke.

Whitney look great!! Can’t wait to see the movie.

        To those of you who gets to choose who’s washed up and a has been, I Thank God you are not my savior or any one else’ savior for that matter. God is in control, not you it is, He who decides who will be blessed and cursed, He decides who will live and die, not you. As long a human being is still living on this earth., restoration has the ability to happen to all even to PERFECT PEOPLE like you.

      Aretha Franklin wasn’t in Sparkle; Mary Alice played the mother. Curtis Mayfield had Aretha sing the songs from the film on the soundtrack rather than the actresses who sang them in the movie.

        The 1976’s Sparkle’s soundtrack album featured Aretha Franklin in place of the actresses in the film.

      Irene Cara and Lonette McKee did a great job singing the songs in the movie but Aretha put that extra SOUL in them
