“Celebrate,” the first official music video from the refashioned Sparkle film hits the Web today. Whitney Houston makes a cameo in the clip, thanks to shots from the movie which play on a wall during a houseparty hosted by Jordin Sparks. The rest of her Sparkle castmates, Derek Luke, Mike Epps, Tika Sumpter, and Goapele, stop by for a night of smiles and dancing and us fans get a bit more of a look at the upcoming remake that made Irene Cara, Lonette Mckee, Mary Alice and Tubbs (before he was on Miami Vice) cult icons. It’s a happy song with a classy theme but watching this video did make me miss Whitney “Oh Hell to the Naw” Houston a bit. Sparkle hits theaters stateside on August 17.
Watch “Celebrate” below, thoughts, ladies?:
