Sparkle Movie Trailer: One Last Look at Whitney

by at . Comments

Whitney Houston passed away in February, but fans will still get a chance to watch her on the big screen in August.

That's because the singer had just finished filming Sparkle when she died, a remake of a 1976 movie in which she plays the matriarch of a musical family.

In various interviews since Houston left us, Jordin Sparks - who makes her Hollywood debut as Houston's daughter - said “it was amazing to walk into work and then Whitney is sitting in her chair blasting gospel music and singing,” while producer Howard Rosenman added that the legend “is unbelievably brilliant in [the film].”

The Today Show gave us our first look at Sparkle this morning. Watch now:

Cissy Houston, meanwhile, recently spoke out on her daughter's death and said she did everything she could have done to point Houston in the right direction.
