Whitney Houston Takes Us To Church In Sparkle!

Earlier this week, we gave you the first of two songs the late Whitney Houston recorded for her upcoming movie, Sparkle.

Now, we have the second one — gospel hymn His Eye Is On The Sparrow — and you might just want to have some tissues handy before pressing play…

Take a listen to one of Whitney's last songs recorded (above).

Wow. Utterly chill-inducing!!!

We still can't believe we lost such an incredible voice just months ago. This track is proof that Whitney's voice really WAS still up to par, contrary to what some might have been led to believe.

Sparkle hits theaters August 17 and we can only imagine that the whole audience will be brought to tears once this song plays!

Whitney will forever live on through her music and legendary voice.

Listen To Whitney Houston's Last Song Ever Recorded!

While we were graced with an absolutely stunning rendition of I Will Always Love You from Jordin Sparks last night on the Billboard Music Awards, we now have Whitney Houston's last song EVER recorded.

Just four days before her untimely passing, Whitney recorded a duet with Jordin for their upcoming movie, Sparkle, where Whitney plays Jordin's mom.

Sparkle, which is a remake of the 1976 film, will be in theaters August 17 and will feature the track Celebrate.

Take a listen to the duet in FULL (above)!

The uplifting, positive song — written by R. Kelly — reminds us to celebrate those loved ones in our lives and to put our troubles away!

Jordin Sparks was one of the very first celebs to hit up the Billboard Awards white carpet, and managed to set the tone in a short nude lace dress by Diane von Furstenberg.

Basically she rocked it!!!

This is all very bittersweet.

Whitney Houston did not only complete her last acting role before her tragic passing earlier in the year with the Salim Akil-directed remake of the musical drama Sparkle, in which she stars as the mother of Jordin Sparks' character, but she also contributed some of her last vocal work for the film's soundtrack, including a R. Kelly-penned duet with the American Idol alum called Celebrate!
