Whitney Houston broke more music industry records than any other female singer in history. With over 200 million album sales worldwide, she was the only artist to chart seven consecutive U.S. No. 1 singles. She also starred in several blockbuster movies before her brilliant career gave way to erratic behavior, scandals, and death at age 48. Oscar-winning filmmaker Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland, How I Live Now) examines Houston’s life and career in an unflinching portrait of the legendary artist and her family. With access to never-before-seen archival footage, exclusive demo recordings, rare performances, audio archives, and original interviews with the people who knew her best, Macdonald unravels the mystery behind the voice that thrilled millions even as she struggled to make peace with her own troubled past.
