Houston’s estate, represented by its executor and Houston’s sister-in-law, Pat Houston, will produce the film alongside Davis. Larry Mestel, whose Primary Wave Music struck a publishing partnership with the Houston estate in 2019, will also produce.

“From all my personal and professional experience with Whitney from her late teenage years to her tragic premature death, I know the full Whitney Houston story has not yet been told,” Davis said in a statement. “I am so glad that Anthony McCarten has committed to a no-holds-barred, musically rich screenplay that finally reveals the whole Whitney whose vocal genius deeply affected the world while she fiercely battled the demons that were to be her undoing.”

Pat Houston added, “Whitney’s legacy deserves only the best that can be given. I stand with the hearts of these partners being the chosen ones to produce a film that’s uplifting and inspiring to all that loved her, giving you a reason to continue to celebrate The Voice that we all fell in love with and will cherish forever!”

God gave me a voice to sing with, and when you have that, what other gimmick is there?

Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden last Wednesday named 25 recordings as aural treasures worthy of preservation because of their cultural, historical and aesthetic importance to the nation’s recorded sound heritage.

Two of the additions — Dusty Springfield’s 1969 album “Dusty in Memphis” and Nippy’s rendition of a Dolly Parton classic, “I Will Always Love You” — have a hidden connection. The late singers’ mother, legendary gospel vocalist Cissy Houston, recorded background vocals as a member of The Sweet Inspirations for songs on “Dusty in Memphis.”

Nippy still is and will always be “The Voice” to me!
