The Hollywood Reporter has posted a track list for the “Sparkle” soundtrack.
If it’s accurate, Jordin Sparks fans should be thrilled.
The album closes with “Celebrate,” the duet by Jordin and Whitney Houston that has been released as a single.
And the video for the song was just released.
In addition, Jordin is featured on six other tracks, including three solos — “One Wing,” “Love Will” and “Look Into Your Heart.”
The album also features a solo by Whitney — “His Eye is on the Sparrow” — and a song by Cee Lo Green.
The soundtrack comes out July 31, and pre-orders are now being taken. The film premieres Aug. 17.
Jordin talked about the filming of “Sparkle” in a recent interview with VH1 that I’ve embedded below.
The similarity between her name and the name of the film isn’t lost on Jordin, who says she’s been called Sparkle, Sparkler and Jordin Sparkles at various times in her life.
So Jordin Sparks in Sparkle. The first time she read the script, she said she thought that had a certain “ring to it.”
As for performing with Whitney, she says it was a dream come true.
So much so that during an early scene in which she’s getting a scolding from Whitney, all she could do was smile back.
Anyway, check out the interview below and head here to watch the video for “Celebrate.”
