Sparkle (2012)

After nearly two decades in television, Akil finally took the leap into feature films. With Whitney Houston, Akil remade the 1970s cult classic film Sparkle for a modern audience, casting Jordin Sparks in the lead. For the perfect director, she had to look no further than her husband and frequent collaborator, Salim Akil.
