Whitney Houston will always be remembered for her powerhouse vocals and amazing ability to connect with her audience. Luckily, fans of the late R&B singer not only have her role in the musical Sparkle to look forward to, but also new music. The Sparkle soundtrack is set to be released on July 31 and it features Houston’s last recordings, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The album’s track listing, recently released by RCA Records, reveals two songs by Houston: “This Eye is On the Sparrow,” produced by Harvey Mason, Jr., and the latest single “Celebrate,” which was produced by R. Kelly and features co-star Jordin Sparks.
Sparkle is a remake of the 1976 film about the road to stardom for a young girl group. Houston plays the mother of the singing trio and lead character Sparkle Williams is played by Jordin Sparks. The movie is set to hit theaters on August 17.
Other artists on the 11-song soundtrack include CeeLo Green, Goapele and Carmen Ejogo.
