Whitney's message brings Jordin Sparks to tears

Whitney's message brings Jordin Sparks to tears

We had no idea Jordin Sparks had not seen the interview with Whitney Houston we showed her this morning.  But it was clear by her immediate and emotional reaction that she wasn't expecting to hear the kind words Houston had for her and her 'Sparkle' co-stars. 

"They were just perfect... for this project.  Just absolutely perfect," said Houston in an interview shot months before her death in February, 2012.

We were very excited to meet Jordin Sparks today on Morning Express with Robin Meade.  Her new movie, "Sparkle," opens on August 17th.  It's her first major motion picture and it's getting a lot of attention because it's the last film Whitney Houston made.

Of course, Whitney famously transitioned into acting with “The Bodyguard” and another “Idol” alum, Jennifer Hudson, won an Oscar for her first movie, "Dreamgirls."  Is Sparks feeling the pressure for HER first film to be a success?
