Whitney Houston’s last onscreen performance

Fans got a glimpse of the late Whitney Houston‘s final film performance this week when NBC’s Today show premiered the trailer for Sparkle. A remake of the 1976 original movie, Sparkle is the story of Houston as the mother of three girls who form a singing group and their struggle with fame and drugs. Sparkle was intended to be a comeback role for the late singer, who hadn’t made a big screen appearance since her last film, The Preacher’s Wife, 16 years ago. Houston was also an executive producer on the movie and was really looking forward to its debut, as she’d been pushing for a remake for the last 12 years. Sparkle is set to hit theaters on August 17.

    Maybe it wouldn’t have taken her 12 years to do it if she wasn’t such a coke head…then she might actually be around to enjoy it

    Wow…wasn’t a fan of her’s but some respect for the dead would be nice, regardless of the flaws and shortcomings she had in life…

    If she was any old regular person we’d be “oh that’s sad” but because she’s a celebrity people think its their right to be rude and ignorant and have no respect.

    Regardless of whether or not she was an addicts he was an exceptional star! Her singing voice while ravaged from substance abuse still was incredible and I for one cannot wait to see this film.

    I’ve loved her ever since The Bodyguard and will continue to love her now that she’s gone.
