And here she is…the young lady to play in the upcoming Whitney Houston movie: Her name is Yaya DaCosta. Striking resemblance, huh?
Bobby Kristina is mad about it–she felt she should have been chosen to play her mother. http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/tv/bobbi-kristina-brown-mad-angela-bassett-whitney-houston-film-article-1.1849675
Angela Basset is the director and doesn’t agree.
I agree with Angela. What about you?
Whitney has been gone for over 2 years now. Everytime I hear her music, I actually stop to listen to that voice.
You see, I saw Whitney come up–I remember buying her fist album, but honestly, at that time, I was so into hip hop, dance music, and R & B, I just wasn’t into the Barbara Streisand type songs Whitney was singing. And yes, I was one of those people that didn’t think she had enough soul–wasn’t hip enough. But as the years progressed, I grew to respect her talent.
When Whitney died, her death didn’t exactly shock some people, but it made me sad, and as I watched her funeral on television, it just struck me, that she was just a little church girl–like myself, as they cued up the various photos of her singing in the choir–just like me. At that time, I connected with Whitney for the very first time.
Yes, we lost one of the last divas–and superstars we’ll probably see for a very long time, but what is everlasting is that voice–it will remain in our memory forever.
RIP Whitney Houston…
