The Vinyl LP soundtrack album, sung by Aretha Franklin, would hit #1 on the top R&B Albums list. The song "Something He Can Feel" hit #1 on the Hot Soul Singles list. The sounds made that American Bicentennial summer something to rejoice and truly celebrate. Of course the album was produced by a musician I consider a genius, the late Curtis Mayfield.
On August 17, 2012, Sparkle, the remake, will be released in theaters throughout the United States. For many of us, it will be more than just another movie; it will be like going home for a nice little summer vacation.
