Sparkle - Trailer


The trailer for Whitney Houston's final movie Sparkle has debuted online.

Jordin Sparks takes on the lead role as Sparkle Williams, a singer from Detroit who comes together with her two siblings Sister (Carmen Ejogo) and Dolores (Tika Sumpter) to form a girl group during the Motown era.

The film itself is loosely based on the life of Dianna Ross and her band The Supremes, and is a remake of the 1976 film of the same name.

Houston, who sadly passed away in February this year, plays the girls' mother Emma and also served as a producer on the movie.

Her final recordings, a version of gospel classic 'His Eye is on the Sparrow' and 'Celebrate', written by R Kelly and performed with Sparks, will feature in the musical drama.

Cee Lo Green, Mike Epps and Derek Luke also star in director Salim Akil's Sparkle, which opens in the US on August 17 and October 5 in the UK.
