F.W. de Klerk,
By the time Whitney Elizabeth Houston was 15, she was singing background vocals for Chaka Khan, Lou Rawls, and Jermaine Jackson. In 1983 Whitney signed a worldwide recording contract with Clive Davis's Arista Records. However her success came with its fair share of drug use, love affairs, and scandals.
Much of the footage in this documentary stems from backstage film shot during Whitney Houston's 1999 tour by Nick Broomfield's co-director, Rudi Dolezal. All the interviews with Houston's friends and family date from that time as they all refused to co-operate with Broomfield. Dolezal had over 100 hours of footage to draw from. See more »
Being a big fan I could not wait to watch this special. But it was anything but special. From the moment it starts it is a man talking about Whitney Houston's life and achievements with photos of her flashing in the background. If you have ever watched TV or picked up a magazine then you already know everything this show has to offer.
