    Whitney was soooo close to a breakthrough that it saddens me to now know that she will never again be able to shine…….except in memory and through her marvelous body of work.

    Oh wow. Seeing Whitney makes me sad. Such a legend gone too soon. I was tepid on a remake of Sparkle but after seeing the trailer and WH, I am going to plan to see it. It looks like quite a few liberties were taken. IMO, the young woman who plays “Sister” better bring it ‘cuz Lonette McKee gave a helluva performance in the original and stole the movie from Irene Cara and Phillip Michael Thomas!
