Jordin Sparks 'Sparkles' in Detroit

Jordin Sparks meets up with legendary singer Aretha Franklin during a special screening of Sparkle held at the Emagine Royal Oak theater on Sunday night (August 5) in Royal Oak, Mich.

“In one scene, she was scolding me really harshly. I had to focus to stay in character, because how cool is it to get scolded by Whitney Houston?” Jordin told Teen Vogue of filming the flick, out on August 7th. “Many times I couldn’t stop crying when the scene was over. Whitney would always come right over to soothe me.”

Jordin is also pictured at the private GRAMMY film screening and Q&A at Sony Pictures Studios earlier last week in Culver City, Calif.
