Jordin Sparks has found herself in the news lately not for her music but due to her connection with the late Whitney Houston in the upcoming film Sparkle, which concluded filming three months prior to Houston's death.
As a celebrity guest at a Disney’s Dreamers Academy event this past weekend, Sparks reflected in detail about what it was like working with Houston on the set of Sparkle.
The 22-year-old singer recounted the experience as "the best thing ever" to have the privilege to be able to work with an idol like Houston whom she had grown up listening to.
Sparks also revealed that Houston made it her duty to mentor Sparks' during her movie debut just as Kevin Costner had done for her in her first film, The Bodyguard, when Houston was the same age as Sparks was during the filming of Sparkle.
Sparkle is set for release this summer.
