The first Sparkle was not only a delightfully cheesy 1976 musical drama starring Lonette McKee and Irene Cara, but spawned an enduring soundtrack by Curtis Mayfield and Aretha Franklin. Unsurprisingly, the best songs on this 2012 remake were written by Mayfield, including "Hooked on Your Love" and "Something He Can Feel." Newcomer Carmen Ejogo gets the honor of covering the latter and three other songs, and she turns "Something He Can Feel" into a slow burner. The late Whitney Houston sings a gospel number, "His Eye Is on the Sparrow," and one can’t help but notice how ragged her voice sounds; she had just enough vocal technique left to get through it. Jordin Sparks sounds the best here: imbuing her three songs with sassy energy, she even pulls off a cute '70s-style "rap" at the beginning of "Love Will."
