Whitney e1319702636219 Hot Shot: Whitney Houston Shines On Set Of Sparkle

The legendary Whitney Houston looked a picture of beauty as she posed it up on the set of her new movie ‘Sparkle’, with actor Mike Epps.

Starring Jordin Sparks, the remake of the 1976 movie (loosely based on the story of The Supremes) is also being executively-produced by the ‘Million Dollar Bill’ singer.

With filming commencing in Detroit this week, it appears the diva jumped straight in with the singing scenes. What did those on set say about her much-debated vocals?

Find out for yourself after the jump…

    I really hope that she is back in the game. I will never forgive her for that last tour (or should that be the promoters for allowing her to go on stage). I saw her perform live in her prime in the 80’s and early 90’s when NO-ONE could touch her vocally. Let’s hope some of that magic is back..

    THE CRACKHEAD HAS THE BOUFFANT “MARY TYLER MOORE” HAIRSTYLE FROM THE 60’S. SHE STILL HAS THAT BELLY THING GOIN ON. WONDER IF THAT’S A MEDICAL CONDITION THAT HER BELLY APPEARS PREGGO THE LAST FEW YEARS AND DOESN’T GET SMALLER. AS FOR THE CAST AND CREW TWEETS, APPEARS THE PR BLITZ HAS STARTED ALREADY. DON’T BELIEVE WHAT YOU SEE, KEEP EXPECTATIONS IN CHECK. ONE MAN’S RUSTED COPPER IS ANOTHER MAN’S GOLD, JUST SAYING.

    AS FOR SAM, SHE IS EXECUTIVE PRODUCER NOT CO-PRODUCER. 2 DIFFERENT THINGS. CHECK THE CREDITS BRO AND UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE. MAYBE GOOGLE THE TERMS, HMMM.

    she looks beautiful… and really if she even sounds halfway decent she will slay because whitney’s very PRESENCE is phenomenal. You know you are in the presence of greatness/royalty even when she’s on screen. They don’t make them like her anymore. Furthermore she can actually act. Haven’t seen that side in years so hopefully it is still in tact. She could act like herself and own half of the industry..

    and I’m not even STANNING, but Whitney Houston is still WHITNEY HOUSTON, hardships aside.

    Her voice won’t be back to The Bodyguard days but I believe they can be better than what she did on I Look to You cd which would be an improvement and I’d take it. Whitney’s voice is still there where she can sound amazing even if she isn’t singing as high and clear as the bodyguard. I’d take Just Whitney or My love is your love vocals.

    She looks so regal and elegant!

    I am wondering….will she RE-RECORD or will they include her version of Look into your heart?? I hope they feature her version that was released in the 90s on the B Side of Count on Me single.
    I hope they include that version of Whitney.

    Everyone is put here for a purpose. Whitney has always been true to herself and has always been constant in communicating whence her blessing flows…She began sharing her gift at 5 years old…43years later, why wouldnt she still be sharing it. God has a way of showing you who his people are..they do magnifcent things..they show how he loves us unconditionally…Whitney is just like you and me…we are not perfect but we are his children and what he puts in us is a reflection of the power of his love. …Just make sure we buy a ticket to the film..make sure the tix says Sparkle and purchase the soundtrack..Her hard work should generate a nice gift for her and her family..after all when you work hard there should be a nice payoff!!…CONGRATS TO THE QUEEN OF LOVE!!…WHITNEY HOUSTON!

    How many times have we heard she is backi. She is a wack job why don’t she just go somewhere and sit it on down. Her speaking voice is horrible to listen to. She is always hoarse and sounds like she just had a blunt. She waisted a gift from God and my guess is that she still hits that pipe along with all the wrong foods making her a pot belly b****.

    I noticed that there are alot of whitney haters,well she got nothin but luv for ya.she is beieng scrutinizd by them hater & media,for her shortcmings’but one thing i love bout this lady is that she is still standin,u knw why’cauz she is a woman of God.people keep ssyn she wnt get her golden voice back,but wth God evrythn is possble.haters hve always been afraid of Whitney becauseof her worlwide success and influence in the indystry.thats why they if whitney was to be spoken in media is jst the’she wnt mke it,drugs,but u knw you cant hide the fact that she still has power.For thse who r saying the film is of low standards,well whitney is not for publicity’she makes it because she loves what she does.thats what makes whitney so unique frm other artist!to conclude,Im so sick and tired of Media propoganda,tryindemote whitney,whitney houston is the best selling black female artist with more than 200 million records.stop using Mariah as a bargaining chip for racial issues.There Ive said it.
