Whitney Houston Docu To Premiere In July
“Whitney,” a documentary detailing the life and career of singer and actress Whitney Houston, will premiere on July 6the. The film offers a closer look inside Houston’s personal and public life and includes unreleased tracks and never-before-seen footage, as well as recorded live performances throughout her career. The film’s producer, Kevin Macdonald, says he received approval from the late singer’s estate.
I approached Whitney’s life like a mystery story; why did someone with so much raw talent and beauty self-destruct so publicly and painfully? I was lucky enough to have the support of Pat Houston and the Whitney Houston estate in this quest.
They entrusted me with the ‘keys to the vault’ while giving me complete freedom to follow the story wherever it went. At heart, ‘Whitney’ is an intimate family story that reveals a new side to a woman that even her most die-hard fans never knew.
The film also features Houston’s original studio recordings and a capella performances of some of her most beloved hits, as well as home video content the filmmakers were able to collect with access to the Houston estate.
