Jordin Sparks Speaks About Working With Whitney Houston On 'Sparkle'

'Battlefield' songstress Jordin Sparks has spoken for the first time since Whitney Houston's death about what it was like working with the star in the hugely-anticipated movie Sparkle.

The American Idol winner answered a series of question from fans about working with her idol everyday in the remake of the 1976 movie.

"She was an amazing, amazing superstar and she became my friend. It was incredible to even be around her – she was such a sweet woman," Jordin said according to Eurweb.com.

The 22-year-old singer went on to reveal how she and Whitney connected emotionally and went on to share detailed memories of how the pair bonded.

"Something that I found out was that when she did The Bodyguard she was 22, the same age that I am now and Kevin Costner was so sweet to her and was so kind and just really wanted to mentor her and give her an amazing experience on her first film – and I found out that she wanted to do the same for me cause it was my first and it was something that I was nervous about and she really did that."

Sparks went on to share exclusive scene details of how Whitney would  "have a little fun with her by making faces at her to try and make her crack."

Sparkle is set for release on August 2012.

Whitney was found dead on February 11 at the age of 48. The cause of her death is yet to be determined.
