First Look: WHITNEY - The Lifetime Movie

Image
由不知名小咖女星Yaya DaCosta所領銜主演的惠媽傳記電影"Whitney",首波預告片日前釋出。關於惠媽的生平,資深歌迷們應該都如數家珍,但對於把一些可能是事實的過往或是謠傳加油添醋赤裸的呈現,對於逝者及其家屬,真的公平嗎?
在這個網路資訊多到爆炸的年代,是與非...........該由誰來判定?
Everything about the late Whitney Houston is iconic: her voice, her music, and her story. And on Jan. 17, Lifetime will bring Houston’s journey to life in Whitney, the network’s new Hollywood biopic that stars Yaya DaCosta (The Butler) in the title role and was directed by Angela Bassett.

Happy Birthday! A Tribute To Whitney Houston

Image
On August 9, 1963, one of the brightest stars to ever grace a musical stage was born. Whitney Elizabeth Houston dazzled us from the moment she first sang in her church choir to her glorious rise to become one of the most successful and idolized songstresses in music. And though she is no longer with us, SoulTrain.com thought it only right to salute this musical icon on what would have been her 51st birthday with some of her greatest moments.

First look: Yaya DaCosta as Whitney Houston in Lifetime's biopic

Image
Lifetime’s early-2015 biopic Whitney Houston (working title)—directed by the singer’s Waiting to Exhale costar Angela Bassett and starring ­former America’s Next Top Modelcontestant Yaya DaCosta—just began shooting. But DaCosta has already re-created the iconic cover of the pop diva’s 1987 Whitney album. And her ­modeling background came in handy for the quick shoot. Laughs the star, “I just looked at the picture and did the pose!” Somewhere Tyra is smizing proudly.

9 Unforgettable “Star-Spangled Banner” Performances

Image
在我心中,史上最強美國國歌演唱,非惠媽莫屬。
Songs can take on a variety of moods depending on how they’re performed, and that extends even to the most august of tunes, our national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Many would be surprised to know that the melody dates back to 18th-century London, where it was originally composed for a gentleman’s club of amateur musicians. It became popular both there and, ultimately, across the pond, where it was sung with a wide spectrum of lyrics.

Whitney Houston biopic director Angela Bassett talks casting, drugs, family, and Bobby Brown

Image
曾與惠媽一起演出電影【等待夢醒時分Waiting To Exhale】的女星Angela Bassett,日前宣布將執導關於惠媽生平的電視電影。消息一出,中外惠媽歌迷一片譁然......

Ever since Angela Bassett announced she would direct a Lifetime film on beloved singer Whitney Houston, diehard fans—and most of the Internet—have speculated on nearly every aspect of the film. Who would play Houston, with her prodigious voice and winning smile? Would her daughter Bobbi Kristina appear in the movie? Would her family be involved? How would her ex-husband, singer-songwriter Bobby Brown, be depicted? And what of Houston’s death in 2012—would that make it to the small screen?

Ariana Grande vs. Kelly Clarkson vs. Robin Thicke: Whose Whitney Houston Cover Do You Like Best?

Ariana Grande vs. Kelly Clarkson vs. Robin Thicke翻唱大車拼~
Judging by how diverse each of these singers are, you might not expect them to all have covered Whitney Houston. But it’s true: Ariana Grande, Kelly Clarkson and Robin Thicke have all channeled the late icon. Ariana Grande covered the late singer’s classic hit ‘I Have Nothing’ at the White House, while Kelly Clarkson and Robin Thicke both decided to rock their own (very different) versions of ‘Exhale (Shoop, Shoop).’ Which artist covers Whitney Houston the best?

Clive Davis talks Whitney Houston album, pre-Grammy party and more

Clive Davis typically has many irons in many fires. So even though he's holed up in an elegant Beverly Hills Hotel bungalow he's had at his disposal "forever" — fielding phone calls, e-mails and, yes, even faxes while organizing the annual pre-Grammy Awards bash he's again hosting at the Beverly Hilton Hotel — the veteran producer and record executive makes a point of talking about a project especially close to his heart: a Whitney Houston live album.
