Here’s your first look at the powerful new Whitney Houston documentary Can I Be Me

The life of a legend is coming to a big screen soon.

Award-winning director Nick Broomfield has spent years putting together previously unseen footage of Whitney Houston at the height of superstardom for a powerful new feature-length documentary.

Whitney: Can I Be Me traces the American star’s life from her early beginnings singing in the local church choir in New Jersey, through her record deal break and to her huge rise to become one of the most famous singers on the planet.

The documentary will take a look at her turbulent relationship with husband Bobby Brown, her personal struggles, as well as her close friendship with personal assistant Robyn Crawford until her death aged 48 back in 2012.

Whitney: Can I Be Me will be released in cinemas on 16 June.

But if you want to see it before then, you can.

Gay Times is hosting an exclusive screening of the film in London at The Mayfair on 13 June.

The special event will also include a Q&A with the film’s director Nick Broomfield. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here.
