See preview of Whitney Houston’s “Sparkle” movie

Sparkle, the upcoming movie starring Whitney Houston and Jordan Sparks, is due for release this August, and today the first trailers from the film were released and appeared on the Today show.

The film is a remake of the moderately successful 1976 musical, and was filmed last Summer in Detroit. Houston fans have been anxiously waiting to see her performances, which we understand were exceptional. So, while we wait for the release of the full movie, here is a sneak peek.
