LOS ANGELES — Whitney Houston’s last recording — a duet with “American Idol” winner Jordin Sparks — was released yesterday ahead of the singers’ upcoming film, “Sparkle.”
“Celebrate,” produced by R. Kelly for “Sparkle,” which will hit movie theaters on Aug. 17, was recorded by Houston shortly before her sudden death at age 48 in February.
The up-tempo track features disco beats and a positive message, as Sparks and Houston sing lyrics such as “I’m going to celebrate, celebrate you.”
Sparks on Sunday delivered a heartfelt tribute to Houston at the Billboard Music Awards.
