Video: Whitney Houston & Jordin Sparks – ‘Celebrate’

Jordin Sparks

Whitney Houston’s legacy lives on in the video for “Celebrate,” the R. Kelly-produced single off the soundtrack to Sparkle and the final song recorded by the late legend. Her Sparkle co-star Jordin Sparks threw a house party and celebrated the life of her mentor with her co-stars including Derek Luke, Omari Hardwick, Goapele, Carmen Ejogo, and Tika Sumpter.

“What we wanted to do was make sure that this was a fun, happy video and just kind of dedicating it to her,” the “American Idol” champ told “Entertainment Tonight.” “What better song to leave for people to hear than a song that is so upbeat and just so happy and so encouraging?”

The 22-year-old singer plays Whitney’s daughter in the remake of the 1976 Motown-era film, which opens in theaters on August 10.

    I don’t care how many times she started smoking again. Whitney Houston had the spirit and energy of a legend. These young kids are not poised and don’t give out that vibe at all. Jordin is cute. Hope she keeps taking her music career seriously. She comes from money so she already had it all to begin with so…
