Jordin Sparks Pays Tribute to Whitney Houston

Jordin Sparks took the stage at Essence magazine’s Black Women in Hollywood to honor her late “Sparkle” co-star and idol Whitney Houston.

Before Sparks performed one of the songs from their upcoming moving she told the audience, “She went from being this unreachable supernova pop star to my co-star to my friend.”

Of her tribute for Whitney, Sparks told Access Hollywood, “I’m being a part of the tribute for Whitney, I was already going to do it and sing a song from the movie… and then all the recent events happened and now I’m going to be singing a song that she actually sang but is also in the movie…It makes me very emotional. I looked up to her, I sang her songs, and then I met her face-to-face and she was so kind, she was so sweet. I am just very blessed to have got to know her for the short time that I did. She was incredible.”

Other big names that attended the event at the Beverly Hills Hotel included: Octavia Spencer, Kerry Washington, Paula Patton, Pam Grier and Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rimes, who were all honored for their work.
