CD Review: Various Artists

Sparkle: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (RCA)

The only reason to hear this soundtrack to the remake of the 1976 movie about a 1960s girl group is for the last two songs recorded by Whitney Houston (who also stars in the film) before her death. She flies solo on the blah gospel cut "His Eye Is on the Sparrow" and duets with Jordin Sparks (who plays Sparkle) on the festive "Celebrate." A bunch of songs by the movie's stars, like Cee Lo Green, round out the record.
