Prior to Whitney Houston’s sudden passing in 2012, the singer and actor was set to star in a new film, “Sparkle.” In the movie, which was a remake of a 1976 motion picture, Houston portrayed the protective mother to three daughters who formed a singing trio, per Turner Classic Movies. The actors who played the girl group opposite Houston were Tika Sumpter, Carmen Ejogo, and Jordin Sparks. The “Sparkle” soundtrack included 11 songs, per Apple Music, one of which was Houston’s rendition of the gospel tune, “His Eye Is On the Sparrow.”

This collection also featured one of the last tracks Houston ever recorded, a duet called “Celebrate,” as NBC 4 New York wrote in 2012. Sparks and Houston sang the song, which carries a positive theme of making it through tough times and leaving your troubles behind. Houston sings on the upbeat recording, “Though we been going through changes / Just trying to make it from day to day / Tonight don’t you worry about a thing / Just cast your cares away,” reminding listeners to see the bright side of life.

The song finishes with Sparks saying, “We love you Whitney!” in honor of Houston’s legacy.
