Starring Naomi Ackie as Whitney Houston and Stanley Tucci as the legendary record producer Clive Davis, who discovered Houston while she was performing at a New York City nightclub and signed her to his Arista Records label. Ackie performs Houston’s 1985 hit “How Will I Know” onstage at the start of the trailer, showing the beginning of Houston’s career.

Fans are excited to see Whitney Houston be honored and respected as the incredible vocalist  she is with this feature film.

In an official statement following the verdict, Cardi says:

“Part of growing up and maturing is being accountable for your actions. As a mother, it’s a practice that I am trying to instill in my children, but the example starts with me. I’ve made some bad decisions in my past that I am not afraid to face and own up to. These moments don’t define me and they are not reflective of who I am now. I’m looking forward to moving past this situation with my family and friends and getting back to the things I love the most–the music and my fans.
