Whitney Houston is a massive part of the soundtrack to my childhood. And since she came on the scene back in the 80’s, she has really set the bar as far as incredible vocal talent, beauty, and magnetism. There will never be another her. That being said, when I heard there was a biopic being done on her life and career, I thought, “Dude… that’s a TALL order”. Then again, I thought that when I heard about “Bohemian Rhapsody” and I loved that movie.
Here’s the trailer:
Naomi Ackie plays Whitney, and it’s a bold move. But I’m willing to give her a chance! Some commentors are complaining that she doesn’t look like Whitney, but seriously…who the heck DOES? She was one in a million. I love music biopics, and I love that Stanley Tucci plays Clive Davis in this one. So will I see it? You bet. I’ll withhold judgement until then.
“I Wanna Dance With Somebody” hits theaters December 21st!
