''Sparkle'' is an Aretha Franklin album, written and produced by the late Curtis Mayfield. The disc is the soundtrack album for the 1976 Warner Bros. motion picture ''Sparkle'', starring Irene Cara. The songs on the soundtrack feature the instrumental tracks and backing vocals from the film versions, with Franklin's voice taking the place of the original lead vocalists.

This album returned Aretha to Gold status after two failed albums. The first single release, "Something He Can Feel" was a #1 R&B hit for Aretha and reached #28 on ''Billboard''s Hot 100. However, it was Aretha's only Pop Top 40 hit during the second half of the 1970s. The album itself reached the Top 20 of ''Billboards main album chart and was certified Gold for US sales of over 500,000 copies. In 2009 it was reissued on Rhino's budget Flashback Records label.

The songs "(Giving Him) Something He Can Feel" and "Hooked on Your Love" were covered by En Vogue on their 1992 breakthrough album ''Funky Divas''.
