Whitney Houston Sparkle Film, One day after the death of Whitney Houston, Sony has announced that it will be going ahead as scheduled to release Sparkle, the singer’s first film since 1996?s The Preacher’s Wife.

According to MTV News, Sparkle is a remake of the 1976 Irene Carr film of the same name, which centres on three musicians struggling with addiction. Houston will play Emma, mother to the star musician, who will be played by American Idol alum Jordin Sparks.

Sparkle producer TD Jakes released a statement on Houston’s death this morning:

“We are deeply saddened by the tragic and untimely passing of Whitney Houston, whom we were blessed to have just completed work with on the remake of the film “Sparkle.” We ask the world to join us in lifting up Whitney’s family in prayer and ask God for their strength and comfort during this devastatingly difficult time. At the apex of her career, Whitney had no peer, with a voice that shaped a generation. She has left behind a musical and film legacy that will endure . she will be sorely missed by us all.”

While Houston is best known as the Grammy-winning singer of such hits as I Wanna Dance with Somebody, the musician was also an accomplished actress, having starred most famously in The Bodyguard. That film featured what is perhaps her biggest hit, her take on Dolly Parton’s 1973 song I Will Always Love You.
