‘Celebrate’ may serve as the final song Whitney Houston recorded, yet it’s thankfully not the last of her new material.
Today ushered in with it the premiere of Houston’s titillating take on ‘His Eye Is On The Sparrow’ from the ‘Sparkle’ soundtrack.
Indeed, it was her performance of this very song while filming the movie (due August 17th), that had the cast and crew in floods of tears.
Can it evoke a similar reaction in recorded form? The answer awaits after the jump…
Listening to this serves as a potent reminder of the rich qualities embedded in her “new voice”. Life’s stuggles may have shaved off some of that legendary range, yet the foundation of why she remains ‘The Vocal Bible’ (see: emotive and stirring delivery) is oh so present here. Indeed, few of today’s stars could establish the connection Whitney did with the lyrics of each and every song she sung. This being no different.
