The Kevin Macdonald film, ‘Whitney’ the documentary about the late singer Whitney Houston’s life will hit theaters July 6th.

‘Whitney’ contains several new glimpses into the late performer’s past, including previously unreleased tracks and never-before-seen footage, as well as recorded live performances throughout her career.

“I approached Whitney’s life like a mystery story; why did someone with so much raw talent and beauty self-destruct so publicly and painfully?” Macdonald shared with Variety. “I was lucky enough to have the support of Pat Houston and the Whitney Houston estate in this quest. They entrusted me with the ‘keys to the vault’ while giving me complete freedom to follow the story wherever it went. At heart, ‘Whitney’ is an intimate family story that reveals a new side to a woman that even her most die-hard fans never knew.”

 The film also features Houston’s original studio recordings and a capella performances of some of her most beloved hits, as well as home video content the filmmakers were able to collect with access to the Houston estate.

The late singer’s manager and sister in law, Pat Houston also has executive producer credits in the film.
