It debuted Wednesday night at  2018 Cannes Film Festival, the first official trailer for Kevin Macdonald’s Whitney Houston documentary, Whitney, was released Wednesday morning. In the film, the late musician is remembered through never-before-seen archival footage, exclusive demo recordings, rare performances, audio archives and original interviews with her loved ones.WH_095_I1225_WhitneyHouston.tif

 

In the preview, many familiar tabloid headlines are referenced as vignettes of Houston’s life flash onscreen and a banner promises to reveal “the answers you never knew” to the “questions you want asked.” The Grammy winner’s friends and family discuss her headline-making romance with Bobby Brown, her “tough” relationship with mom Cissy Houston and the drug abuse that contributed to her death at age 48 in 2012.

“There were times when I looked up to God and I’d go, ‘Why is this happening to me?'” the singer says in one scene, seemingly pondering her rise to superstardom and the downfalls of fame. “People think it’s so easy and it’s not.”

 

Whitney hits theaters July 6. Watch the trailer below.
