“What we wanted to do was make sure that this was a fun, happy video and just kind of dedicating it to her,” Jordin told Entertainment Tonight. “What better song to leave for people to hear than a song that is so upbeat and just so happy and so encouraging?”
“Sparkle” castmates Derek Luke, Tika Sumpter, Omari Hardwick, Goapele and Carmen Ejogojoin Jordin in the video, where the late star is remembered with various points toward the sky, a Whitney t-shirt, and Jordin saying “We love you, Whitney!” at the end, along with an In Memoriam dedication.
