The film is set in 1960s Detroit where three sisters form a singing group and become extremely famous -maybe too famous. As time goes on, the family starts to disband as a result of the rising popularity and everything becomes a struggle.
Whitney plays the mother of the three girls that guides them through their time in the spotlight.
In addition to her character, she also served as executive producer of the movie before her untimely death back in February.
Sparkle comes out in theaters on August 17th, so be sure to save the date!
