'Sparkle' Cast on Whitney Houston

Jordin Sparks and her co-stars from Salim Akil's drama share what it was like working with music icon Whitney Houston.

Jordin shared a story of singing  the song "I Have Nothing" on the set only to have Whitney explain that she recorded that song in three takes at the studio. "To hear that story from her, I was just like I better step my game up in the studio too. Three takes and that's the song that came out, incredible" added Jordin.
