Sony Pictures has released the official trailer for its forthcoming Whitney Houston biopic, I Wanna Dance With Somebody.

The film is a powerful and triumphant celebration of the incomparable Whitney Houston.

Directed by Kasi Lemmons, written by Academy Award nominee Anthony McCarten, produced by legendary music executive Clive Davis and starring BAFTA Award winner Naomi Ackie, the film is a no-holds-barred portrait of the complex and multifaceted woman behind The Voice.

From New Jersey choir girl to one of the best-selling and most awarded recording artists of all time, audiences are taken on an inspirational, poignant—and so emotional—journey through Houston’s trailblazing life and career, with show-stopping performances and a soundtrack of the icon’s most beloved hits as you’ve never heard them before.

The I Wanna Dance With Somebody cast also includes Stanley Tucci as “Clive Davis,” Ashton Sanders as “Bobby Brown,” Tamara Tunie as “Ciccy Houston,” Nafessa Williams as “Robyn Crawford,” and Clarke Peters as “John Houston.”
