'Sparkle': Late Whitney Houston on being 'like their mother' to costars -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Sparkle may have earned mixed reviews from critics when it came out this year, but the musical set in the late 1960s starring the late, great Whitney Houston as a fierce, loving mama to three singing sisters — Jordin Sparks, Carmen Ejogo, and Tika Sumpter — showcases the controversy-plagued icon at a stable, hopeful point before her accidental drowning in February.

Check out this exclusive video clip, below, from extras on the movie’s Blu-ray, out this Friday, of Houston gushing about her younger costars. “They are the three most warm and loving and supportive young women that I’ve come across in a long time,” says Houston. “I have really come to be like their mother in a sense. I’m so proud of them, I don’t know what to do.”
