CBS Readies All-New Whitney Houston TV Special Featuring Monica, Cece Winans, & More

Published: Friday 18th Mar 2022 by Rashad

Just months after ABC assembled Brandy, Chaka Khan, and others for a star-studded primetime special about the life and times of late Pop icon Whitney Houston (as we reported here), CBS is following suit with a similarly-themed program titled ‘Whitney: A Look Back.’

More inside:

Presented in partnership with ‘Entertainment Tonight,’ ‘A Look Back’ – which will arrive nearly two months after the 10th anniversary of Houston’s passing – will chronicle the legacy of the larger-than-life diva with the unveiling of rare moments like never-before-seen interview clips and lost performances.

With special guest appearances from Dionne Warwick, Clive Davis, Monica, CeCe Winans, Kelly Price, and others, the one-hour special will also feature commentary from the aforementioned and many others who knew Whitney best.

“The past 10 years is like 10 minutes or 10 days to me,” Monica said. “When I think about Whitney, the first thing that I picture is her smile. It was something that, believe it or not, she never lost. No matter what was happening, her smile was the first thing you saw. Even on a sad day, she would smile at you first… Selflessness, that was her.”

‘Whitney: A Look Back’ will air April 2, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

The television event is one of many tied to Houston expected to roll out over the next year.  In addition to a big screen biopic, ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody,’ the legendary songstress is tied to multiple new albums, a Broadway bio-musical, and a hologram tour.

  1. What would Whitney do March 18, 2022

    Yay CBS cant wait to see how this Whitney special will be produced. What will be told. I think she was killed hopefully they let ppl know she was not on crack but on nose candy. but Don’t have Dion Warwick on the special. That’s no disrespect to her. But we know how she feels. Time for the rest of the FAM to tell her to shut up

    . And yes shout out to CBS

      Your a fool, Crackney Drugsaons was indeed on crack. Who would gain from a crackhead’s death, and who would want to kill her? Also, I doubt CBS would get your shout out LOL.
