  • What to watch: 'Sparkle' in theaters
    Houston had been a driving force behind the production of “Sparkle” since she had acquired the remake rights in 2000. Aliyah was originally who Houston had in mind to play the role of Sparkle, but plans were put on the back table after the singer was killed in a 2001 plane crash.
