Divabetic pays tribute to the incredible Whitney Houston on thee free diabetes podcast, Diabetes Roundtable to broadcast live on Tuesday, August 7, 2012, 6 -6:30 PM, EST Available for free at www.divabetic.org
The happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic says he’s proud to salute Whitney Houston on the eve of her new film, Sparkle,” Whitney’s extraordinary talent is a part of the soundtrack of our lives – even watching the Olympics – it’s hard not to think of her. She’s truly a DIVA inspiration. We’re hoping her strong and powerful voice will motivate others to raise awareness for diabetes.”
Whitney Houston‘s turn as the mother of three sisters who encounter the downsides of fame in the new movie “Sparkle” has been viewed as a performance that could have relaunched her career.
But in light of Houston’s February death, it will be seen as the performance that “adds another diamond to her legacy,” says Houston’s co-star, Tika Sumpter, who portrays one of the late legend’s on-screen daughters.
The film is a remake of the 1976 production of the same name, which is said to be loosely based on the Supremes, as it follows the fame that comes to the titular Sparkle and her sisters after they launch a singing career.
“American Idol” star Jordin Sparks portrays the title crooner, and she told CNN in an interview that she, along with the rest of the cast, cherish the fact that they got to work with Houston before she passed.
“We got to experience the beauty and the essence and the humility that was Whitney,” Sparks, who portrays the titular Sparkle, told CNN in an interview. “We have those last moments with her, so we get to speak about that – we get to tell people about her and who she was and what we experienced. And I think that’s important, too, to add to her legacy.”
“Sparkle,” Sparks continued, will be the “last thing people are going to see, the last thing she did and she looks beautiful. She lights up the screen, and you can just tell she’s so full of joy to be doing this. I saw it for the third time the other day and I just still was so taken aback by the fact that it’s all happening and we were all a part of it, and there she was. She was just incredible.”
