*The music video for “Celebrate,” the duet featuring Jordin Sparks and the late Whitney Houston from their forthcoming film “Sparkle,” has hit the Internet today complete with never-before-seen clips from the movie.
“We planned on it being Whitney and me, but she’s not here, so we wanted to make it a tribute to her,” Sparks told BET. “So it’s fun, upbeat and exciting – there are clips from the movie and the main cast is in the video, too. We’re all just having a good time [and the premise is] they all come over to my house singing along to Whitney’s music.
“And we’re missing her and celebrating her as well. It’s actually pretty simple, but when you watch it and hear her voice along with it, it makes it so much more.”
Sparks added that she gets “speechless” when thinking about the fact that she appears on Houston’s final recording.
Watch the video below. “Sparkle” will arrive in theaters on Aug. 17.
