Yes, the World Does Need Another Whitney Houston Documentary

Filmmaker Nick Broomfield announces new documentary about the late legendary singer.

Published March 8, 2016

To say that Whitney Houston is a legend feels like an understatement given just how prolific a figure in our music history she was.

Four years after her death, Nick Broomfield will revisit the singer’s life, in conjunction with BBC Two, in a new documentary aptly titled Whitney.

The accredited filmmaker has several successful documentary films already under his belt, including, Sarah Palin: You Betcha!; Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer; and Kurt & Courtney.

As announced, Broomfield will explore topics that may be hard for die-hard Whitney fans to swallow, namely the forces that made and then consequently destroyed the singer. The documentary will hold a focus on the singer’s later years, unlike Lifetime’s 2015 biopic film of the same name. 

Details surrounding the new film, such as its release date, have yet to surface. is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
