According to reports a documentary will be released about the legendary singer Whitney Houston, who passed away in 2012 at the age of 48, entitled Whitney. The documentary, created by Oscar-winning director Kevin Macdonald, will reflect the late singer’s life and career.
“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,” Macdonald said in a statement. “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.”
Macdonald’s movie ‘Whitney’ is filled with unreleased recordings, never-before-seen home movie footage and live performances recorded by Houston at various stages in her life, as well as original studio recordings, and a capellas’ of some of her biggest hits. His goal is to share the singer’s talent, her successes, and failures, allowing fans around the world to humanize such a glorious talent and relate to her ups and downs.
