We still can’t get enough of Whitney Houston. A new documentary called Whitney about the late, great singer will be dropping in July.
Kevin Macdonald’s Whitney, the documentary about the life and career Whitney Houston, will hit theaters in the U.S. on July 6. The date comes after Miramax back in June 2016 acquired rights to the film — the only one officially supported by the late singer’s estate — and partnered with Roadside Attractions to release it. Executive producer Altitude Film Entertainment is handling international sales and will bow Whitney in the UK and Ireland also on the same date.
The docu, produced by Lightbox and Lisa Erspamer Entertainment, includes previously unreleased recordings, never-before-seen home movie footage and live performances recorded by Houston at various stages her life, as well as original studio recordings, a capellas of some of her biggest hits. The Oscar-winning Macdonald looks at Houston’s life, work and creative process, revealing a woman both blessed and cursed with her talent.
Houston passed away in 2012 at the age of 48. Rest in power.
