Whitney Biopic: Snippet Of ‘I Will Always Love You’ (Performed By Deborah Cox) Surfaces

deborah whitney Whitney Biopic: Snippet Of I Will Always Love You (Performed By Deborah Cox) Surfaces

Much ado has been made about Lifetime‘s upcoming Whitney Houston biopic.

From song clearances, to starring actors, to its very existence; the Angela Bassett production hasn’t been short on controversy.

The latest round of debate ignited this week when it was announced that Deborah Cox will be voicing ‘The Voice’ in the made-for-TV movie. Legalities surrounding copyright means it won’t be possible to use Houston’s hits in their original form. Hence, Cox – a powerhouse in her own right – is providing “vocal tracks” for lead Yaya DaCosta to “perform” to.

Naturally, the news has many eager to hear whether Cox can do justice to Whitney’s iconic catalogue. And it seems folk won’t have to wait too long to find out.

TMZ have premiered a clip of the re-sung rendition of the late diva’s signature hit ‘I Will Always Love You’ – which was recorded on set in Los Angeles this week.

Listen below and, as ever, let us know what you think!

apollo phaedra Apollo Nida Doesnt Believe Marriage To Phaedra Parks Will Last In Prison

Are Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida on the brink of a break-up? If the latter’s words are anything to go by, the answer is “yes”.

‘The Real Housewives Of Atlanta’ couple has been at the centre of a media storm following Nida’s second criminal conviction – this time for multiple counts of fraud.

The speculation looks set to intensify too. For, during an interview with Atlanta’s B-100 radio station today, the father of Parks’ two sons revealed that he believes she will divorce him once he’s in the slammer. His reason for thinking as such? “(She) didn’t even f***ing show up” for his sentencing.
