First Look: Whitney Houston Played By America’s Next Top Model Star YaYa Dacosta

MOBO- FRIDAY, JULY 11, 2014 12:09 PM GMT

Former America’s Next Top Model star Yaya DaCosta will play Whitney Houston, in a biopic about the singer’s life, it has been revealed. Lifetime’s early-2015 biopic Whitney Houston (working title)—directed by the singer’s Waiting to Exhale costar Angela Bassett- has just began shooting. Even though Yaya does not have the same vocal range as the late R&B diva, she has the look down to perfection, as the first promotional photo demonstrates, with its striking resemblance to the pop star’s original 1987 Whitney album cover. As for how she prepared for the shoot, she said: “I just looked at the picture and did the pose!”

The biopic will focus on Whitney’s relationship with ex-husband Bobby Brown and will not address her death in 2012, which is something Bassett told TMZ she did not want to highlight.

“We’re not interested in dragging her life again through, you know, the muck. She had to play out her choices, and the consequences of them, in a very hot, glaring spotlight, but we’re not interested in dragging that through again.”
