Whitney Houston's "Sparkle 2012"

"Sparkle" tells the story of the title character; Sparkle, (Jordin Sparks) the youngest of three sisters and a music prodigy who struggles to become a star while overcoming issues that are tearing her family apart.  Sparkle is from an affluent Detroit area, naive to the unexpected experiences her new life will bring as she and her two sisters blossom into a dynamic singing group during the Motown-era.

The late Whitney Houston will play the trio's mother (Emma). Mike Epps plays a wealthy comedian named Satin, who woos Sparkle's sister into a drug-filled abusive relationship on their way to the top.

During her journey, Sparkle endures the tests of fame as she rises through the music business. "Sparkle", set in the late 1960s when Detroit was the music mecca of America.

    ALL: It pains me to see the majority of our members not be able to see this movie together as a group (which is what we are) especially when the original Meetup posting went up on May 15th and the "Buy Advanced Tickets Now" notice was posted on July 25th; Folks, that was 24 days ago! ELLE: I'll be in the Lobby Lounge in jeans and a black shirt at 8:00 PM. EVERYONE: Have a safe trip to and from the movies tonight.

    I don't know how I missed the part about buying tickets in advance. I signed up for this meet-up months ago when I was still new at it. Hope everyone has fun!

    Ditto - I forgot to buy my ticket earlier. The only seats left are way up front. I may skip this one and try to see it another time.
