Just six months ago this week, the world lost one of the greatest voices of our time with the tragic death of Whitney Houston. She died just months after she finished shooting a decade-long passion project.
That project was the new movie "Sparkle." It was her last on-screen performance. In the film, Houston plays Emma, a hard-working single mom who dreamed of a singing career that never took off.
Houston was just 13-years-old when the original film was released in 1976, at a time when she was chasing her own musical dreams. She would eventually start and executive produce the remake that she didn't live to see. The movie will hit theaters this Friday.
Bishop T.D. Jakes, producer of the new movie "Sparkle" and founder of Potter's House Church in Dallas, talks to Soledad on "Starting Point" about the legend's final film performance and her legacy.
