    Ms. Houston was known as “the Voice” for a reason. Her voice was so pure and rich. When she sang her voice carried you away on waves of all kinds of emotion, the greatest being love. Whitney was love and she didn’t even know how loved she really was. Her vulnerability and humility allowed her gift of one of the greatest voices the world has ever known to soar and reach into all of our hearts. She changed us all forever.

  40. classified infomation

    Hi my name is Samara I am 11 but I`m turning 12 in a few months.
    I have been singing since I was 7 and and been in chorus for 4 years(Even honor chorus for a year) . When my mom told me about Whitney I fell in love, I love the majority of her songs including I will always love you, I wanna dance with somebody,I have nothing, and many more. I don’t really like acting but I would give it a try. Singing is my passion and people say I almost sound like Whitney. So I would like a chance.
    I have one question is it to late, did the movie already come out.

  41. Elizabeth Gomez

    Whitney Houston is one of my favorite all time singers. I learned of her death at a singing audtion for Americas Got Talent. The day she died, my heart broke. Her song, I will always love you pricked my heart and I identify greatly with this song as I recently went through my own divorce of a marriage of 30 years. I am a singer and to be a part of her movie would be an honor. Her song means letting go is hard its hard to let go of love but the song emphasized that love in its real sense NEVER DIES but goes on past ttime and space,

  42. Bridgette Beltran

    Whitney Houston is one of the best singers of all time. She had her ups and downs, but overall, she was the best. She is a legend, and left a legacy that will be remembered forever. She inspired me so much. Her story is very tragic, but I am so happy that there’s gonna be a movie based off of her life! This reminds me a bit of the “Selena” movie. Two amazing performers with a tragic ending. My name is Bridgette (BRIJ-et) Beltran. I am 12 years old, turning 13 on September 4th. And as everyone says, I would love to be in this movie. I think I would be great for this movie because I have a deep passion for singing and acting (and dancing, but that doesn’t really apply to this movie). I love singing her songs. When I sing them, I sing them with all the power I am capable of doing. I Will Always Love You is by far, hands down, 100% one of my favorite songs, and when I sing it, I feel like it would be disrespectful to Whitney to sing it weak, and soft. I sing my lungs out to that song. I have been singing since I could make a sound. I really would be great for this movie because I have a deep passion for singing and acting. It is what I do, what I was born for. Although I am not sure what part I would play in this movie, since I was hoping for maybe a young Whitney, but I am not African-American.

    I have dark dark brown hair
    I am Hispanic
    My skin color is a light caramel
    Eyes are dark brown
    Hair is curly
    Waist – 24 in
    Height – 5’2
    Weight – 105
    I do have a “powerhouse” singing voice. I can do whistle tones, yodel, really anything. If you would like some picture of me, feel free to email me. Thank you so much, and I wish you success with the movie. (:

    Greetings, to whom ever this may concern, it would be with great honor to get a role in the Whitney Houston story. I am a 17yr old, passionate skillful singer, dancer and actress who would love to be a part of such an amazing event I would dedicate my all to this role and show true skill and perfection. I am an African american talented 17yr old girl born in a small town, pacoima and raised in the valley and Lancaster waiting to show the people who tried to but failed, to beat me and my dreams down, what I’m capable of. growing up as a brandy and Whitney fan I loved and listened carefully to the perfection in Whitney’s mesmerizing voice and fell in love with her voice and still I listen to Whitney Houston and loved watching her be extraordinary,and play roles like a fairy God mother. like in my favorite movie Cinderella starring brandy. And of course the legendary Whitney. It would be a blessing to be picked to star in this Whitney Houston story, I would be so humbly, greatful. Thank you
    Sincerely~jennell Wadell~ inspiring great artist

I’ve taken an acting/theater class high school. i have also taken a video production class where I learned how to make movies and work with cameras and special effects. My group and I did so well on the project that my teacher uploaded our video to a contest which was the Montclair Kidz shorts film in 2013. My group won first place an it was very exciting. It was at that moment when I realized that I wanted to pursue a career in acting. I’ve always dreamed of becoming an actress. I do believe I have the talent. I am ready to take the next step. please do consider myself as a potential role in this movie. I am interested in any.

    My whole life I have been told by people that I remind them of Whitney. I discovered my singing ability in the 4th grade and like Whitney, I was the skinny girl with the big voice. Friends, family and strangers agree this would be the role for me and my reply is, “Nobody knows who I am”. If I had one wish, it would be to play Whitney Houston.
    I am young, super slim, and I know that I would be able to make you believe I am Whitney Houston.
