Well, the verdict is in and the Whitney Houston Documentary” was wonderful….. (wonderful being an understatement). I was able to go check it out this week, and it was worth every bit of the $10 I paid.

I’ll be honest, I’m a frequent moviegoer and all, but if it weren’t for the fact that I was following auntie O (Oprah), on Instagram, I wouldn’t have known about it. I was a little worried when I saw the word “documentary,” and was furthermore surprised when I found out that it was playing in select theaters…. But boy, was it worth it!

Rotten Tomatoes gave it 90%, and I soon found out that Kevin McDonald, the director, left no stone unturned.

The documentary addressed how her singing career was made a family affair, her unfortunate drug abuse, and answered every question her fans ever had. Most of all, though, it did so in the most elegant, tactful, jaw-dropping, yet heart-throbbing way.

In short, it was a very vulnerable movie–it put it all out on the table and still made Whitney out to look like the special person everyone loved. Though we all know Whitney had a special place in every black person’s heart, she also broke the mold globally, and was able to reach you no matter your skin color.

Even with all the things Whitney went through being in the public eye, she still left a lasting impression, a legacy and MAJOR mark on this world and this industry–being the only female artist to have seven consecutive #1 Billboard Hot 100’s.

Below is a video of the trailer. Hopefully it’ll pull at your heartstrings as much as it did mine to go and check it out! We love you, Whitney!
