Divalicious! Deborah Cox Will Sing For Yaya DaCosta In The Whitney Houston Biopic!

Filed under: Music MinuteWhitney Houston

deborah cox to lend vocals to whitney houston biopic12

Wow, we're SO happy to hear the director of the Whitney Houston biopic, Angela Bassett, decided to enlist the AH-mazing Deborah Cox to provide vocals for the actress Yaya DaCosta!! With Deborah's impressive background in Broadway, we know she's more than capable to bring Whitney's greatest hits to life!

When Whitney tragically passed a few years ago, we and all of her many fans were devastated. While we can't bring our beloved songstress back, at least we can honor her AH-mazing voice on the small screen!

While Dacosta has the looks down pat, Cox will bring credibility to the film with her powerful set of lungs.

To refresh y'all on Deborah's background, she starred in the a few Broadway hits like Aida and is responsible for the mega popular track, Nobody's Supposed to Be Here!! Like the late Whitney herself, girl can sing!

We can't wait to see the biopic and we think Deborah will do an AH-mazing job!!

Whitney Houston's Lifetime biopic is really coming together!! And so quickly, we might add!

Following the casting announcement AND first look at America's Next Top Model's Yaya DaCosta as singing legend Whitney, it's only appropriate to finally reveal who will be playing Bobby Brown!

It's what everyone has been waiting for after news of the biopic was broadcasted for all to hear!

The network revealed in a new photo of Yaya posing next to her co-star and on-screen hubby, Arlen Escarpata!

The 33-year-old actor looks a little too innocent to portray the New Edition musician, but we have a feeling his acting chops will make up for it!

Arlen has appeared in a number of TV shows, so there's no doubt he has the experience for the role!

Here you go, Whitney Houston fans!

Yaya DaCosta is stepping into some big shoes to tackle the role of the legendary Miz Houston for the Lifetime biopic.

And finally, FINALLY we are seeing a first look at Yaya as Whitney!

Yaya went full-on Whitney to channel the singer's 1987 Whitney album. In this first look, the former America's Next Top Model contestant does seem to have the look and her bubbly personality down pretty damn well.

The biopic, currently titled Whitney Houston, has just started filming with Angela Bassett in the director's chair.

Even though Whitney's family isn't fully backing this project, we're sure Yaya and Angela will do their best to do Whitney right.

But what do you think about Yaya as Whitney?
