Another biopic chronicling the life and career of an iconic singer is once again coming to the disappointing Lifetime network in January. ‘America’s Next Top Model’ finalist, Yaya Dacosta plays singer Whitney Houston in the Lifetime biopic ‘Whitney’ scheduled to air on January 17th.
In an effort to boost anticipation for the Angela Bassett directed made for tv film, the network has released a teaser of DaCosta channeling her inner Whitney in a studio setting. With vocals loaned to the project by ‘Nobody’s Supposed To Be Here‘ singer, Deborah Cox, and Wesley Johnson who plays top songwriter, Babyface, the scene has just enough positive energy to create some sorta anticipation. It is definitely headed in a much better direction than the Wendy Williams directed biopic.
