In her feature film debut, Sparks stars as Sparkle, a young woman whose big dreams seem almost impossible. Despite being warned against the pitfalls of the music industry by her protective mother (Whitney Houston), Sparkle forms a trio with her sisters (Tika Sumpter and Carmen Ejogo), encouraged by the support of the handsome and ambitious Stix (Derek Luke).
Together, the sisters perform the soul-stirring songs that Sparkle pens, but as their fame grows, so too do the risks of jealously, self-doubt and insidious temptation. This soulful and sweeping drama is brought to life with a powerful all-star cast including Mike Epps, Omari Hardwick and singer Cee-Lo Green.
In commemoration of Houston's final feature film, the posthumous release of Sparkle will debut on the small screen two weeks before the first anniversary of her death. Sparkle is a must-see for all Houston fans and film buffs.
