When Singers Become Actors

The late Whitney Houston returns to the big screen today in Sparkle - the film that would become her last acting role. The musical drama sees Houston play the part of Emma, mother to three young ladies seeking fame as a girl group, while she warns them of the perils of the life they so desperately crave.

Singers turning to acting is not a new phenomenon – singers from Barbra Streisand to Eminem have been turning their talents to the big screen for decades and though not all have done it well, some have shone in their attempts.

Head over to Filmoria to find out who the team have chosen as their standout performances by singers who have truly become actors.

Featuring Will Smith, Plan B, Frank Sinatra and more.
