The Rev. TD Jakes, of Dallas, is the producer of “Sparkle,” the unreleased film that critics believed might help relaunch Houston’s acting career.
She had a leading part in the remake of the ‘70s classic, alongside Jordin Sparks.
Rev. Jakes released the following statement this evening:
“We are deeply saddened by the tragic and untimely passing of Whitney Houston, whom we were blessed to have just completed work with on the remake of the film “Sparkle.” We ask the world to join us
in lifting up Whitney’s family in prayer and ask God for their strength and comfort during this devastatingly difficult time. At the apex of her career, Whitney had no peer, with a voice that shaped a generation. She has left behind a musical and film legacy that will endure…. she will be sorely missed by us all.”
set for an August release.
