SInger Deborah Cox recorded Houston's vocals for the film.
We’ll have to wait until January to see the highly anticipated Whitney Houston biopic, Whitney. In the meantime, Lifetime keep us curious by releasing clips of Yaya DaCosta as the iconic singer.
The Angela Bassett-directed film will follow Houston’s tumultuous relationship with Bobby Brown as well as her rise to stardom. Though DaCosta won’t be singing the songs (those will be voiced by R&B singer Deborah Cox), judging by the clip above, where she is recording “I’m Your Baby Tonight,” she will expertly capture the essence of Houston.
Will you be tuning in for the January premiere?
