When Jordin Met Whitney: Ms. Sparks (l.) and Ms. Houston star in Sparkle.
American Idol winner Jordin Sparks and the late Whitney Houston (The Bodyguard) star in the musical drama film Sparkle, a remake of the 1976 cult favorite starring Irene Cara (Fame) and Lonette McKee (The Cotton Club).
Sparks stars as Sparkle (appropriately enough!), a young woman whose big dreams of stardom seem almost impossible. She’s been warned against the pitfalls of the music industry by her protective mother (Houston), yet encouraged by the handsome and ambitious Stix (Derek Luke), Sparkle forms a trio with her sisters (Tika Sumpter and Carmen Ejogo). Together, they perform the soul-stirring songs that Sparkle pens. But as their fame grows, so do the risks of jealousy, self-doubt and temptation.
