She may be departed but legendary singer, Whitney Houston, sizzles in the trailer for the upcoming movie Sparkle, in which she plays the role of Mom to Jordin Sparks. The movie is set to premiere on August 18, 2012.
This role was Houston's final acting part before her tragic death from drowning last month.
Sparkle is a remake of the 1976 Motown-era movie. Cee Lo Green and Dereke Luke also co-star in the film.
