Whitney Houston is teaming up with American Idol winner Jordin Sparks for Sparkle, an uplifting, Motown-era musical drama, and we're first on the set. No, it's not a sequel to Mariah Carey's Glitter. Sparkle is actually a remake of the 1976 film of the same name, and it mark's Whitney's first big-screen role since The Preacher's Wife in 1996. Set in 1960s Detroit, Sparkle follows the title character; Sparkle (Jordin), a music prodigy struggling to rise through the ranks of the music business.
