Showtime Documentary Films will premiere WHITNEY. "CAN I BE ME," a film exploring the incredible career and complicated life of the memorable singer, at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City on April 26. The film will air on Showtime later this year.
According to her band members, "Can I be me?" was Houston's favorite expression, one she used so much that they sampled it to play at the start of rehearsals. The film explores Whitney's central dilemma: even though she had made millions of dollars, had more consecutive number ones than The Beatles and was recognized as having one of the greatest voices of all time, she still couldn't do what she wanted to do, either professionally or in her personal life.
