Jordin Sparks covers the September issue of Redbook, showing off her famously fit figure. Sparks' dramatic weight loss has been much-discussed in the press, but it's a positive thing, since she looks terrific, especially in that sparkly, sequined peach mini skirt. More importantly, she's healthy! The 'Sparkle' singer/actress also spoke about her co-star and idol Whitney Houston.
While it's been a banner year for popular music in 2012, we can't forget about the musicians whose deaths had a huge impact on pop music this year. We had to say goodbye to some iconic music makers in 2012, and we're taking time to pay tribute to the pop stars who tragically died in our list of the Artists We've Lost in 2012.
Jordin Sparks is filming a music video for 'Celebrate,' the song she recorded with Whitney Houston for the movie 'Sparkle.' The official YouTube site of the film posted a new clip with footage from the video shoot and scenes from the movie featuring the full cast, including Houston and Cee Lo Green.
The loss of Whitney Houston will be remembered by a new documentary depicting what happened behind the scenes at this year's 54th annual Grammy Awards following the news of the singer's death.
