Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia 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 »
