Here’s why I Wanna Dance With Somebody is definitely one for your winter movie list

1. The cast is some up-and-coming big names

Okay, we might be underselling with the ‘up and coming’ comment, as the casting for this film has been done perfectly. In the lead role is Naomi Ackie, you might recognise her as Bonnie from your binge sessions with Netflix’s ‘End Of The F***ing World’.

We also have the legend that is Stanley Tucci as Clive Davis, Ashton Sanders as Bobbi Brown and Bria Danielle Singleton as Bobbi Kristina.

Basically, it’s a very cool lineup of names you’re gonna wanna remember for a long time!

2. Find out the events that lead to the creation of some of the best songs of our time

In October 2020, the music video for “I Will Always Love You” surpassed 1 billion views on YouTube, making Houston the first solo 20th-century artist to have a video reach that milestone.

What events in history conspired to lead to the creation of a song so awesome? Why is a school in New Jersey named after her? Why is she nicknamed ‘The Voice’? So many answers to find out in the span of one hour!

3. Two words: WHITNEY HOUSTON!!!

Whitney is phenomenal, and for so many reasons.

  • The first artist to perform in a post-apartheid South Africa by singing for Nelson Mandela
  • Guinness World Record Holder: most awarded female artist of all time, with more than 400 career awards
  • She broke the records of both Elvis and The Beatles by having 7 consecutive #1 singles.
  • She sold more physical singles than any other female solo artist in history
  • The Bodyguard remains the best-selling soundtrack album of all time.

These are just the tip of the iceberg. Starting out at just 22, Whitney’s songs still remain a classic. AKA, you’ve heard at least one in your lifetime, somewhere, sometime, somehow.
