Whitney Houston's final recording is released
Whitney Houston's final recording - a duet with Jordin Sparks called 'Celebrate' - will be released on June 5
Whitney Houston's final recording will be released on June 5.
The late pop legend's last ever song, 'Celebrate', is a duet with 'American Idol' winner Jordin Sparks, and included in the movie 'Sparkle' - the last thing Whitney worked on before her death in February.
The track was produced by 'I Believe I Can Fly' hitmaker R. Kelly and premiered on US radio yesterday (21.05.12).
The song features lyrics such as: "I'm going to celebrate, celebrate you," and Jordin chimes in: "We love you Whitney" at the end of the song.
Whitney plays the 'No Air' hitmaker's mother in 'Sparkle', a remake of a 1976 film about the pressures of fame in the Motown era.
The film is Whitney's first foray into acting since roles in 'The Bodyguard' and 'The Preacher's Wife' over fifteen years ago.
Jordin, 22, sung a moving rendition of Whitney's biggest hit 'I Will Always Love You' in tribute to her at the Billboard Icon Awards awards on Sunday (20.05.12).
48-year-old Whitney was found dead in her Beverly Hills hotel bathtub on February 11, with her death attributed to accidental drowning from heart disease and cocaine use.
'Sparkle' will be in US cinemas from August 17.
