Product Description

CD Description

Whitney Houston’s last recorded songs "Celebrate” (a duet with Jordin Sparks) and “His Eye on the Sparrow”, both produced by R.Kelly feature in the movie Sparkle. Sparkle, a remake of the 1976 film of the same name, tells the story of three sisters who become Motown stars who have to deal with the pressures of fame where Whitney plays Jordin’s mum.
The 13-song soundtrack also includes tracks from pop superstars Jordin Sparks and Cee Lo Green including “I’m A Man,” “Hooked On Your Love,” “Look Into Your Heart” and many more. “Celebrate,” a fun, up-tempo, feel good track produced by R. Kelly featuring Sparks and Houston, is the first single from the film with Whitney’s soul-stirring take on the gospel classic “His Eye Is On The Sparrow” as the soundtrack’s second single.
Sparkle is the story of a musical prodigy who struggles to become a star while overcoming issues that are tearing her family apart. From an affluent Detroit area and daughter to a single mother (Whitney Houston), Sparkle (Jordin Sparks) tries to balance a new romance with music manager Stix (Derek Luke) while dealing with the unexpected challenges her new life will bring as she and her two sisters (Carmen Ejogo and Tika Sumpter) strive to become a dynamic singing group during the Motown-era. Also starring Mike Epps, Omari Hardwick and CeeLo Green, it's directed by Sam O’Steen (The Graduate, High Risk, Kids Don’t Tell), the original Sparkle came out in 1976 and starred Irene Cara, Lonette McKee and Philip Michael Thomas. The gold-certified soundtrack featured Aretha Franklin in place of the film’s actresses and produced her #1 R&B hit "Something He Can Feel".

5.0 out of 5 stars Motown updated 14 Oct 2012
By Olorin
Format:Audio CD
The film was only recently out in the UK and I am so glad I went to see the film. I do think it is quite ridiculous to fully judge a Soundtrack without seeing the movie.

The CD has a distinct Motown feel, and is a welcome refresher from today's chart fodder. In that respect for any fans of Motown and of music it is worthwhile purchase.

Spark's finale in the film and centrepiece of this album "One Wing", is nothing short of show-stopping. Particularly if you have seen the movie. It really is an exhibition in vocal ability and vocal acrobatics.

For fans of Whitney Houston, this contains her last solo recording which I can emphatically state is of comparable vocal quality to the I Look to You album. The reviewer below stating otherwise clearly does not have functioning ears. Houston sings a gospel number and though the tone of her voice changed and diminished from what once was, we still hear flashes of the old-Whitney. What she now lacks in range she makes up for in gospel fervour and emotion. There is nothing "sad" about this final recording except that it was her last, it shows she had much more to give. Whitney's duet with Sparks is less vocally impressive but a catchy and upbeat song, a nice way to remember Whitney or any loved one on a low and grey day.

It's sad but inevitable to have this cd: her 2 last songs, I think that CELEBRATE was recorded a few days before the horrible day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sparkle it does! 1 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Enjoyed the movie and wanted the tracks as keepsake. I was blown away with Jordan Sparks two tracks, and loved the old revival tune of Envogue. I would recommend this CD to true music listeners.
