Jordin Sparks Celebrates Life of Whitney Houston in New Music Video

by at . Comments

Whitney Houston passed away four and a half months ago, but the legendary singer has certainly not been forgotten.

She's back in the news now, in fact, because former American Idol champion Jordin Sparks has come out with the music video for "Celebrate," a duet Sparks sings with Whitney in the film Sparkle.

“What we wanted to do was make sure that this was a fun, happy video and just kind of dedicating it to her,” Jordin told Entertainment Tonight. “What better song to leave for people to hear than a song that is so upbeat and just so happy and so encouraging?”

Sparkle opens on August 17 and co-stars Derek Luke, Tika Sumpter, Omari Hardwick, Goapele and Carmen Ejogo show up in the video, the vocals for which were recorded just a few days before Whitney's tragic passing.

Whitney knew she was an addict and it was up to her in the end to get the help she needed. Her friends didn't want to get her mad at them if they said something and now look at what happened because people said nothing and Whitney did nothing, in the end.

Jordin Sparks Quotes

Sleep as much as you can because you don't get any sleep. It's a year later and I still haven't gotten a whole eight hours of sleep yet ... I'm still reeling from winning last year. But, I guess I would say just try and enjoy every moment you have.

Jordin Sparks [to David Cook]

It's not bad to wear a promise ring because not everybody - guy or girl - wants to be a slut.
