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.
“A completely fresh look at Whitney’s life and death that will reframe everything you think you know about the singer.” – Terri White, Empire
The new documentary 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 (Touching the Void, The Last King of Scotland) unravels the mystery behind “The Voice,” who thrilled millions even as she struggled to make peace with her own troubled past.
