Sparkle is our eponymous star, set to shine in this tale of rags to riches as she rises to achieve her ambition of becoming a musical force. A musical prodigy from an affluent area of Detroit, Sparkle must overcome issues that are tearing her family apart whilst following her own musical ambitions. One of three sisters to a single mother, Sparkle tries to balance a new romance with music manager Stix whilst dealing with the unexpected challenges her new life will inevitably bring as she and her two sisters, Sister and Dolores, strive to become a dynamic singing group during the Motown era.
Sparkle is of course no stranger to the music industry, her mother being a fallen star who tasted the fruits of musical success only to be given the bitter pill that led to her downfall. Not wanting her daughters to fall victim to the same hardships she underwent, she reluctantly watches on as her daughters rise through the ranks to take the Motor City by storm, facing all adversity that comes their way head on. With a hit soundtrack that is sure to entertain it also features new songs from Jordin Sparks, Cee-Lo Green and Whitney Houston in what is her last screen appearance.
