On June 5, 2012, “Celebrate,” a duet with Whitney and Jordin Sparks, was released as a single from the album Sparkle: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. This was the last song Whitney recorded before she passed away on February 11 of that year. The song went on to win several awards including Best Gospel/Inspirational Performance at the Soul Train Music Awards. The film was a personal triumph for Whitney who had always wanted to do a remake of the 1976 original and she served as one of the producers. The film was dedicated to her memory.
