Happy Birthday Whitney Houston…


Today would have been Whitney Houston’s 49th birthday, so in her honor TriStar Pictures is honoring her memory by encouraging folks to check out the trailer for her final film. “Sparkle” which will be released in theatres next Friday (August. 17.). I’ve already seen the film and it was a real tear jerker for me.

The film does includes a few moments that seem eerily prophetic, especially when Whitney says to these girls who play her daughters: “Was my life not enough of a cautionary tale for you?” Houston’s character asks at one point.

Whitney Houston starring as the mom of three daughters who start a Motown girls’ group, was a bit unrealistic to me.

Houston’s character is a former singer wary of the perils of showbiz. She sings “His Eye is On the Sparrow,” which is sure to be a moving moment on the big screen and seems destined for an iTunes release as a single.

Happy Birthday Whitney Houston, 6 months after your death and you’re sorely missed!

  1. I wish I had appreciated Whitney more when she was alive. Now that she’s gone I realize how TRULY one-of-a-kind she was. Same for Phyllis Hyman. Just started listening to her and was blown away at how powerful and heartfelt her vocals were.

  5. Clock strikes upon the hour
    And the sun begins to fade
    Still enough time to figure out
    How to chase my blues away
    Ive done alright up till now
    Its the light of day that shows me how
    And when the night falls the loneliness calls

    Oh I wanna dance with somebody
    I wanna feel the heat with somebody
    Yeah I wanna dance with somebody
    With somebody who loves me
    Oh I wanna dance with somebody
    I wanna feel the heat with somebody
    Yeah I wanna dance with somebody
    With somebody who loves me

    Ive been in love and lost my senses
    Spinning through the town
    Sooner or later the fever ends
    And I wind up feeling down
    I need a man who’ll take a chance
    On a love that burns hot enough to last
    So when the night falls
    My lonely heart calls

    Oh I wanna dance with somebody
    I wanna feel the heat with somebody
    Yeah I wanna dance with somebody
    With somebody who loves me
    Oh I wanna dance with somebody
    I wanna feel the heat
    Yeah I wanna dance with somebody
    With somebody who loves me

      1. I think I’m going to pass on seeing this movie. With the exception of Whitney, I think the acting would be sup-par to say the least. Plus they’ve change the story line so much…….no thank you:-(.

      2. Hi ladies:
        No Felicia don’t want to give the movie away. I will say this though; it was written to suit Whitney. She def. Changed the script. Ok I’m not saying anything more.

        See that’s why I’m not anxious to see this movie. If the script was written around Whitney that means she made sure “her character” was an EX entertainer.

        in the original sparkle i believe their mama was a maid and saw how drugs and men was tearing them (the sisters) apart which is why she didn’t want them to pursue stardom.
