In addition to her album release, Tamela will be making her big screen debut on August 17th playing Whitney Houston’s best friend in the highly anticipated Sparkle. In an interview with Essence, she talked about the movie and how it was to work with the legendary Whitney Houston.
ESSENCE.com: How did you land the part in Sparkle?
MANN: I actually got a phone call for the part. I was shocked, but happy at the same time. I made myself look a little older on my audition tape, like I was from the 1950s, and David sent it in. I was so happy when I got it.
ESSENCE.com: What was it like working with Whitney?
MANN: It was a wonderful experience. I had such a good time. We talked about the Lord; we talked about family and about singing. She actually got to hear the first two songs that I recorded, “All To Thee” and “I’ll Hold On.” She was like, ‘I can’t wait to hear the rest of it. You’re gonna get ’em with this, baby.’ I was very hurt when I got the call about her passing.
