The experience also showed Sparks a new side of Detroit, where the movie filmed. She shares with American Way her favorite Motor City hangouts.
“It’s like stepping back in time,” says Sparks, who got to check out the club before singing there for Sparkle. “It’s this hazy, old-school jazz club that totally fit the vibe of the film; we didn’t have to do anything when we shot there. And the food is delicious.”
“I don’t know if it’s specific to Detroit, but this was my go-to delivery [place] while we were shooting, especially when we got out late. The All Meaty is truly awesome.”

“I go to spas a lot on tour, but I especially loved this one. You can order room service to the [indoor] pool. And book a massage — it was one of the best I’ve ever had!”
