Kevin Mazur/AMA2009/WireImage(NEW YORK) — One of the most anticipated films this summer features Whitney Houston’s last onscreen performance.

Sparkle, starring the late music icon alongside Jordin Sparks and Cee Lo Green, is due in theaters on Aug. 17, but fans caught a glimpse of Houston’s performance in a new trailer, released on NBC’s Today Show Monday morning.  The full trailer premiered later on Monday.

A remake of the 1976 classic, Sparkle centers around an all-girl singing group that struggles with family, fame and drug addiction. Houston plays the mother of the three girls.
