‘Sparkle’ – the long awaited remake of the 1976 classic – is finally here! A fabulous Hollywood premier Thursday evening showed the cast with stars like Vivica A. Fox, Cicely Tyson, Niecy Nash, Tasha Smith, and Bobbi Kristina, daughter of the late Whitney Houston, on the red carpet. Everyone came out to support the film, and honor the memory and last completed project of the late, great Whitney Houston.

The film, which originally starred Irene Cara as “Sparkle,” (the role now played by Jordin Sparks), revolves around a Supremes-inspired girl group, “Sister and The Sisters,” that goes through turmoil following the drug-induced-turnabout of one of its members. But the uplift comes about at the ascention of another member, who, despite all the challenges, finds her way to stardom after all. A movie you don’t want to miss, especially on its critical opening weekend!
