Sparkle, Whitney Houston’s New Film, Features Detroit

The trailer for Whitney Houston’s upcoming film debuted today and some of the locations might be familiar to you. Sparkle, a remake of the 1976 original, stars Whitney as the mother of three girls who form a singing group and struggle with fame and drug addiction. The story is loosely based on the story of The Supremes. Joining the late singer, is American Idol winner Jordin Sparks and comedian Mike Epps.


Sparkle was partly filmed in Detroit and you can spot a few locations in the trailer.
