Cast: Whitney Houston


Whitney Houston broke more music industry records than any other female singer in history. With over 200 million album sales worldwide, she was the only artist to chart seven consecutive U.S. No. 1 singles. She also starred in several blockbuster movies before her brilliant career gave way to erratic behavior, scandals and death at age 48.

This documentary is an intimate, unflinching portrait of Whitney and her family that probes beyond familiar tabloid headlines and sheds new light on the spellbinding trajectory of the superstar’s life. Using never-before-seen archival footage, exclusive demo recordings, rare performances, audio archives and original interviews with the people who knew her best, Oscar-winning filmmaker Kevin Macdonald unravels the mystery behind “The Voice,” who thrilled millions even as she struggled to make peace with her own troubled past.

What happened to her early on... Bobby Brown is not the bad guy made out to be...Although he is a control freak. Her Lesbian Lover Robin’s huge influence...her Tragic childhood. Again , its all about your childhood. The GREATEST VOICE IN THE PLANET > Whitney Houston will forever be the ultimate Voice. Perfect pitch, tone, resonance, emotive ability and control. Singing history is defined as Before Whitney and After Whitney...? note: Should continue to play in the Theaters. Many people did not know this is on."
