About this event
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 before her soaring career gave way to addiction, personal scandal and eventually, her tragic death aged 48.
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’s probing documentary offers an intimate, unflinching portrait of Houston and her family. Whitney moves beyond the headlines to shed new light on the spellbinding trajectory of her life.
