NEW YORK — In September, on the Detroit set of the upcoming musical film “Sparkle,” Whitney Houston wasn’t about to do a church scene with a sleeveless dress — or shy about clueing in the designer, B Michael.
“Come on B. My mother would never wear a sleeveless dress to church,” Houston said. “If I’m in church singing, I am going to raise my hands high. I need something dramatic for the sleeves.…You’re the designer, B. You go create these sleeves.”
