After all that talk about a Whitney Houston biopic, the juice has finally been spilled that the Lifetime movie, “Whitney” (directed by Angela Bassett, starring YaYa DaCosta) is set to premiere on January 17, 2015.

It’s a known fact that Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown were one of the music industry’s top couples.  Therefore, the film will give fans a glimpse of the astranged relationship between the late singer/actress and singer, from courtship to marriage.  Yaya DaCosta and Arlen Escarpeta will portray the couple, even though Bobbi Kristina (Whitney and Bobbi’s Love Child) is probably still pissed because she did not get casted to play her mother in the movie.  Whitney’s vocals will be sung by  Singer, Deborah Cox.  The soundtrack is said to feature songs such as “The Greatest Love of All,” “I Will Always Love You,” “I’m Every Woman,” and even Bobby Brown’s hit “Every Little Step.”

WAIT!  Don’t turn the channel yet!  The premiere will be immediately followed by an hourlong documentary “Beyond the Headlines: Whitney Houston.”  This documentary will feature interviews with friends and colleagues… even some industry insiders who have invested insight into Houston’s career and will cover the tragedies of her downfall.
