Whitney 'Can I Be Me?'

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Whitney Houston was the most awarded female recording artist of all time, with more consecutive number one hits than The Beatles, and on top of that she was America’s Sweetheart. Yet despite her fame, talent, and success, she died tragically at the age of 48.
Featuring largely never-before-seen footage and recordings and interviews with some of her closest collaborators and friends, this moving documentary tells the story of the girl behind the voice, her extraordinary life and her tragic death.
According to band members, “Can I Be Me” was her most used expression, so much so they sampled it and would play it at the start of rehearsals.
