For our first movie of the year, it's nothing but the biopic of one of the greatest voices in entertainment -- I Wanna Dance Somebody,  a movie about the life of the one and only Whitney Houston is already playing in cinemas. It could have been in theaters last Christmas but we have to give way to our local film festival.
Entering the cinema for the first time this year gives lot of chills especially if you're really in for an exciting movie. We've been waiting for IWDWS since the first trailer was released last October. From the writers of Bohemian Rhapsody, you can also watch out for a great show. The theater lobby of TriNoMa cinema 7 during the premiere last Thursday booms with Whitney's iconic songs and you really can't stop yourself from singing along.
IWDWS reveals lots about the life of Whitney Houston (Naomi Ackie). Nippy as she's called was pushed by her mother Cissy Houston (Tamara Tunie) leading to a fruitful partnership with her good friend Clive Davis (Stanley Tucci). You'll admire Whitney's talent in making her songs bigger than the demos, delivering her amazing voice to the waves.  She also relates her songs to her experiences, women empowerment, and family. It's great to know the story behind each song and appreciate it to the core.

Whitney's life is not all fame and glamour. The movie takes you to her journey and relate to her. Her ups are glorious and downs drop to the lowest. You'll love her friends who wished her success and hate the people that brought her down. Bobby Brown and her dad were two different antagonists on her life and influences, at least she learned to fight and get up again. But old habits are hard to stop.
There are 22 songs that are featured in the movie, and you will ask to grab a mic like how you've seen Bohemian Rhapsody. Though some of the songs didn't finish all throughout, at least they were included in the list.

Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance with Somebody is now playing in theaters, directed by Kasi Lemmons from Columbia Pictures.
