Whitney Houston and Jordin Sparks‘ new song ‘Celebrate’ is such a happy track, but you can’t help but feel an underlying sadness when watching the video.

However, it was a lovely tribute seeing the entire cast of ‘Sparkle’ getting together to celebrate the life of the late icon and it was done in such a classy way too. Jordin has never looked better.
Whitney will be tributed by her mother Cissy Houston and other “top divas” at the 2012 BET Awards, which will broadcast live this coming Sunday on July 1st. ‘Sparkle’ will also hit theaters on August 17th. Rest in peace Whitney!
