The Whitney Houston story is coming to a small screen near you thanks to Angela Basset and Lifetime who are bringing the iconic superstar’s story to life with the oh so pretty Yaya DaCosta.
Yaya DaCosta, a former America’s Next Top Model runner-up who has since appeared in Lee Daniels’ The Butler and The Kids Are All Right, will play Whitney Houston in an upcoming Lifetime biopic directed by Angela Basset. The lovely model favors Whitney Houston a lot as they slowly release images comparing the model turned actress to the singer.
The biopic plans to cover Houston’s rise to fame and turbulent relationship with husband Bobby Brown. What I like most about the film is that it’s going to be available to everyone since it’s going to be on television. My next question is who will play her larger than life ex husband Bobby Brown?
It should be fascinating to see the Whitney Houston story come to life and I know that Angela Basset will do her friend’s story great justice. What do you think about Yaya DaCosta staring as the WHITNEY HOUSTON?
