Sparkle Movie Sneak Peek
Whitney's Last Song
Three months after filming ended, Houston passed away on Feb. 11, 2012 at the age of 48. "There are certainly some themes in the movie that everyone would have wanted to ask Whitney about like, 'Did you relate your own life to this part,' which I'm sure she would have answered honestly," Sparks told Redbook. "The cool thing about Whitney was that she was not scared to talk about or confront the things she had gone through."
