Whitney 'Can I Be Me'

Whitney 'Can I Be Me'

An unparalleled icon, Whitney Houston was, for many, the original diva, her legendary voice providing a soundtrack to her myriad fans’ lives. But behind the music was a complex, isolated woman haunted by insecurities and demons. WHITNEY ‘CAN I BE ME’ examines Houston’s New Jersey gospel roots, her rise to global fame in the 1980s and the key relationships in her life, building to deliver the clearest picture yet of a star still sorely missed

With contributions from those who were around her throughout her career, WHITNEY ‘CAN I BE ME’ also offers insight into the 1999 world tour where things began to unravel, with co-director Rudi Dolezal offering a glimpse of the real Houston in previously unseen behind-the-scenes footage.

Respectfully looking into Houston’s life, Nick Broomfield (Kurt & Courtney, Biggie & Tupac) adds balance to the tabloid headlines that dogged the end of Houston’s career, providing a portrait of trailblazing talent whose memory continues to live on.
