The Voice. The Queen. The iconic Whitney Houston is one of my favorite artists of all time. So imagine my excitement to find out about a documentary with never-before-seen footage directed by Academy Award winner, Kevin Macdonald.
According to EW, Miramax and Roadside Attractions made the announcement this past Friday that the documentary would be released in theaters nationwide July 6th. Check out what Macdonald had to say about his approach:
“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.”
He went on to say:
“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.”
Let us know what you guys think about a Whitney Houston documentary. I’m such a big fan of the iconic singer, I know I can’t wait. You can catch Whitney in theaters everywhere July 6th!
