New Trailer For Whitney Houston Documentary "Whitney"

Check out the new trailer for the upcoming documentary on pop superstar Whitney Houston - Whitney.


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.

The documentary feature Whitney is an intimate, unflinching portrait of Houston and her family that probes beyond familiar tabloid headlines and sheds new light on the spellbinding trajectory of Houston’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.

Along the way, the film touches on her relationships with Bobby Brown and Robyn Crawford.

“Robyn was her safety net. Bobby was jealous,” says an unidentified voice. “His heart was, he wanted to be on the stage. He wanted to be in the forefront, and eventually she stepped down to lift him up.”

This documentary has been approved by the Houston family estate.

An earlier, unauthorized documentary - Whitney: Can I Be Me - was roundly denounced by Houston's family in that it touched on Whitney's drug use and bisexuality.

Houston’s mother Cissy Houston told Oprah in a 2013 interview she would “absolutely” have been disappointed if her daughter had come out to her as gay.

Whitney premieres this Thursday at Cannes and is scheduled for a theatrical release July 6.
