Listen: Whitney Houston’s Final Song From the ‘Sparkle’ Soundtrack

Jordin Sparks Whitney Houston
Sony Pictures

When Whitney Houston died in February, many said her death was especially tragic because the legendary singer had just finished ‘Sparkle,’ a film that was meant to be her big comeback after years of personal troubles.

Now we have our first taste of a song from the soundtrack.

‘Sparkle’ was Houston’s fourth and final film, following her breakout role in ‘The Bodyguard’ and other work in ‘Waiting to Exhale’ and ‘The Preacher’s Wife.’ The movie is a remake of the 1976 flick of the same name, and it features Houston as the single mom of the title character (played by former ‘American Idol’ champ Jordin Sparks) as she tries to shepherd Sparkle and her two sisters to stardom as a girl group during the Motown era.

The soundtrack includes songs from the original film written by soul icon Curtis Mayfield as well as new compositions by Houston, Sparks, R. Kelly and Cee Lo Green.

‘Sparkle’ is set for release on August 17, but in the meantime, check out the Houston/Sparks duet, ‘Celebrate,’ from the soundtrack:
