Los Angeles, CA (June 11, 2012) – This summer, celebrate the era of Motown with Sparkle: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, available July 31st from RCA Records. A remake of the 1976 classic, the highly anticipated film stars pop superstar Jordin Sparks and the late Whitney Houston and is directed by Salim Akil (Jumping The Broom, Soul Food). Sony Pictures will release Sparkle in theaters nationwide on August 17th. Featuring the final recorded performances from the late music icon Whitney Houston, the 13-song soundtrack also includes tracks from pop superstars Jordin Sparks and Cee Lo Green including “I’m A Man,” “Hooked On Your Love,” “Look Into Your Heart” and many more. “Celebrate,” a fun, up-tempo, feel good track produced by R. Kelly featuring Sparks and Houston, is the first single from the film with Whitney’s soul-stirring take on the gospel classic “His Eye Is On The Sparrow” as the soundtrack’s second single. Sparkle is the story of a musical prodigy who struggles to become a star while overcoming issues that are tearing her family apart. From an affluent Detroit area and daughter to a single mother (Whitney Houston), Sparkle (Jordin Sparks) tries to balance a new romance with music manager Stix (Derek Luke) while dealing with the unexpected challenges her new life will bring as she and her two sisters (Carmen Ejogo and Tika Sumpter) strive to become a dynamic singing group during the Motown-era. Also starring Mike Epps, Omari Hardwick and CeeLo Green. Directed by Sam O’Steen (The Graduate, High Risk, Kids Don’t Tell), the original Sparkle came out in 1976 and starred Irene Cara, Lonette McKee and Philip Michael Thomas. The gold-certified soundtrack featured Aretha Franklin in place of the film’s actresses and produced her #1 R&B hit “Something He Can Feel.” The film and soundtrack’s success inspire many Broadway musicals today.
