Whitney

That voice…

Whitney Houston was the backdrop to Saturday morning chores at our homes growing up, and we sat in the theaters when she made her film debut in 1992. We watched the infamous interview with Diane Sawyer, and sat transfixed on the television screens to watch her funeral after the unexpected death of our “Whitney Houston”.  She was and still is this generation’s goose-bumping raising voice to play through our speakers.  Whitney Houston was gifted, complicated, and conflicted with who the world wanted her to be and who she really was…”Nippy”.

Kevin Macdonald handled her story and legacy with unbiased care reminding us of her gift, providing perspective on her complications, and shedding a brighter light on her inner conflicts. You will dance.  You will sing.  You will feel heartbreak.  You will be glad you went to the theatre to see this must-see documentary.

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

“Whitney” captured the rise, the fall, the faith, the family, the marriage, the parenting, the vulnerability and most importantly the kindness of the force we know as “Whitney Houston”. This was a real documentary…no frills, no overpowering bias, just showing it all. We heard from almost all of her inner circle, watched “Nippy” lounging on her couch and got captivated by her legendary performances all over again. “Whitney” is the gold standard of how a documentary should be done. Go see it now!
