Jordin Sparks and the cast of Sparkle honor Whitney Houston in the music video for “Celebrate”, from the upcoming movie.
The song was Whitney’s final recording and since she couldn’t be in the music video, the cast decided to honor her. “We planned on it being Whitney and me, but she’s not here, so we wanted to make it a tribute to her,” Jordin told BET.
“Celebrate,” produced by R. Kelly, is the first of two singles off the Sparkle soundtrack. The other will be Houston’s gospel number, “His Eye is on the Sparrow.”
Sparkle opens August 17.
