Listen To Whitney Houston's Last-Ever Track On The Sparkle Soundtrack

1
When Whitney Houston passed away, all of us at R29 felt like a major part of our lives had just been ripped away. Some of us danced to her heyday hits at prom, others were just kids in Mom's heels belting out "I Will Always Love You" in front of the mirror, but all of us loved and admired her music. Regardless of what happened to Whitney in her later years, nothing can tarnish our memories of the beautiful, wholesome, upbeat songstress who was a forerunner to today's pop giants.
That's why we can't wait to see Sparkle. Obviously a film about starlets trying to make it big in the Motown era is worth a watch in and of itself – not to mention a soundtrack packed with sure-fire hits from music's MVPs. But the fact that it's the last chance to see Whitney at her best — on screen and showcasing her many talents? That makes it a can't-miss event in our book. We're willing to bet our entire collection of Whitney cassette tapes that this is going to be a beautiful film that will bring tears to our eyes and yours. If you're still not convinced, listen to her last-ever tracks — just released for the film's soundtrack. Her duet with co-star Jordin Sparks is amazing, and her solo rendition of gospel classic "His Eye Is On The Sparrow" will blow your mind.
So what do you think: Will you be catching Sparkle in theaters this August, or is it still too painful to tug on those heartstrings?
