Another day another magazine cover for Jordin Sparks, who is joined by her “Sparkle” sisters Carmen Ejogo and Tika Sumpter on the front of EBONY’s September issue which hits newsstands today.
Inside the cast gives their first magazine interview which includes Whitney Houston reflections with the entire cast of the film. EBONY also has two “as told tos” by writer Lynn Norment with Bobbi Kristina and Pat Houston.
Check out some excerpts from Jordin Sparks and Bobbi Kristina below:
“I think if Sparkle were here now, and a real person, we would be best friends. She’s been wanting [fame] her whole life. Music is all she thinks about; it’s all she has ever wanted to do…That’s how I felt when I was growing up.”
“I’m so proud that you were able to finish making Sparkle…(you) being so happy was an absolutely beautiful thing for me to watch,” she said.
The issue also includes an HBCU special profiling the winners of the 2012 HBCU Queens contest and for the first time ever, EBONY lists the leading secondary education programs at Historically Black Colleges and Universities across the nation across the Sciences, Business, Liberal Arts, and Law disciplines.
