The Nottingham Agency brought an exclusive screening of ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’ to Atlanta. The star studded event gave attendees an early peak of the new film honoring American icon Whitney Houston before its release date.
Known as the greatest singer of all time, Whitney Houston is portrayed by the beautiful Naomi Aicke. Directed by Kasi Lemmons and written by Academy Award® Nominee Anthony McCarten, the film takes the audience on an emotional rollercoaster as it details the life, career, and fall of the late singer. Stanley Tucci plays the role of legendary record producer Clive Davis, who is also one of the producers of the film. Whitney’s mother and father Cissy and John Houston, are portrayed by Tamara Tunie and Clarke Peters. Ashton Sanders takes on the role of King of R&B and husband, Bobby Brown. Kris Sidberry plays sister Pat, and Nafessa Williams plays Robyn Crawford.
The red carpet premiere was hosted by R&B singer Monica, which was fitting as Whitney served as her mentor and friend. Many stars graced the carpet to celebrate; Rotimi, TS Madison, and Latocha Scott. Also in attendance was Yandy Smith of Love and HipHop, Da Brat and wife Judy, BMF cast member Da’Vinci, and model Tocarra Jones, and many more.
The movie takes you down memory lane, highlighting how the Grammy award winning artist landed her biggest hits. From start to finish, the musical entertainment will have you singing and dancing from your seats. However, have tissues nearby. Some scenes are certified tear jerkers.
‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’ hit theaters Friday, December 23rd!
