Must-See: Arsenio Hall Moved to Tears When Talking About Whitney Houston

Tika Sumpter remembers acting with Houston in Sparkle—the late singer's final project.

Last night’s episode of The Arsenio Hall Show brought out raw emotions in Arsenio Hall.

The TV host was so touched by Tika Sumpter’s impersonation and memories of the late Whitney Houston that he was moved to tears.

“Whitney was everything,” explained Sumpter, who starred in Sparkle with Houston. “She was like a mother—a motherly figure.”

Feeling emotional remembering his good friend, Hall said, “You have such a good eye and ear because as you did that I’m sitting here and I’m really missing Whitney. You hit those beats so perfectly. She sticks with you.”
