Sparkle (1976)

This camp classic combined the spirit of the Motown era with a rags-to-riches story. It launched the career of Irene Cara, who went on to star in another musical classic, Fame. Sparkle struck a chord with mainstream audiences well beyond its time at the box office and prompted one famous fan, Whitney Houston, to spearhead a remake.
