New Video: Whitney Houston and Jordin Sparks ‘Celebrate’

Whitney Houston is back, if only for a moment, in the new video for the single “Celebrate” with Jordin Sparks.

The visuals for the track, which is off the Sparkle soundtrack, was shot before the untimely passing of Whitney.

In the clip, Jordin throws a party in celebration of the late star. “What we wanted to do was make sure that this was a fun, happy video and just kind of dedicating it to her,” said Jordin to Entertainment Tonight. “What better song to leave for people to hear than a song that is so upbeat and just so happy and so encouraging?”

The former “American Idol” contestant also enlisted co-stars Derek Luke, Tika Sumpter, Omari Hardwick, Goapele and Carmen Ejogo to join in on the fun.

Sparkle will be hitting big screens August 10.
