Oscar award-winning director Kevin MacDonald is bringing us a Whitney Houston documentary.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, chief creative officer of Sony Music Entertainment Clive Davis will be interviewed for the film. MacDonald had this to say about the late legend: “The story that is never told about Whitney is just how brilliant she was as an artist; by many measures she had the greatest voice of the last 50 years. She changed the way pop music was sung – bringing it back full circle to its blues and gospel roots. She was also completely unique in being a black pop star who sold in countries where black artists don’t traditionally sell.”
