“Sparkle” didn’t sparkle quite as much as some predicted it would this weekend. “Rolling Stone” reports the film — which stars “American Idol” alum Jordin Sparks and the late Whitney Houston in her final movie role — was estimated to bring in as much as 18-million-dollars over its first three days in theaters. Instead, box office estimates put “Sparkle’s” opening-weekend gross at just 12-million-dollars, which was enough for a fifth place showing. Fellow newcomer “The Expendables 2″ won the weekend with a take of 28-point-eight-million-dollars.
“His Eye is On the Sparrow” is one the more famous black gospel songs that people sing.
Whitney Houstonâ€™sÂ last recording was released (â€œCelebrateâ€ feat.Â Jordin Sparks) and this morning,Â RCA Records has issued another stirring track from the upcomingÂ SparkleÂ movie (in theatres Aug 17).
The classic gospel song â€œHis Eye is On the Sparrowâ€ is performed by Houston in a moving scene from the film. There wasnâ€™t a dry eye on set after that scene was shot. Â Whitney Houston nailed this version!!! Check it out below. Read More »
