Whitney Houston was one of the most iconic artists in the music industry. Her passing shook the world and left an impact that is still felt around the world today.
Whitney was the most awarded female artist of all time, selling more than 200 million records worldwide. With her first studio album in 1985, and for more than 25 years that followed, her music became the soundtrack for multiple generations. That is why Stella Meghie, who is in advanced talks to direct, and Anthony McCarten are gearing up to bring Whitney’s story to life on the big screen, and forever in our hearts. That’s right, Whitney Houston’s life story is being turned into a major motion picture (with the blessing from her estate of course!)
The producers describe the film, currently titled I Wanna Dance with Somebody, as a:
“Joyous, emotional and heart-breaking celebration of the life and music of the greatest female R&B pop vocalist of all time, tracking her journey from obscurity to musical superstardom. While being very frank about the price that super-stardom exacted, it will be both the rich and complex saga of the search for the perfect marriage between song and singer and audience, and at the same time the moving tale of a simple Jersey girl trying to find her way back home.”
We are beyond excited for this movie, and we will be stocking up on the tissues in preparation for the big premiere! In honor of the goddess herself, let’s take a trip down memory lane and reminisce on just a few of our favorite Whitney Houston songs of all time!
‘I Will Always Love You’
‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’
‘How Will I Know’
‘I Have Nothing’
‘I’m Every Woman’
‘Run To You’
Words cannot describe the love and respect we have for such a fierce queen. We hope this movie does justice in telling her life story, and we will be the first ones in line for tickets!
