The trailer touches on multiple hot-button issues that surrounded Houston, as a disembodied voice fires off questions about drug choice, addiction, her relationships with Bobby Brown and Robyn Crawford.

'There were always a lot of secrets, ' one of the singer's loved ones added in the trailer. Another follows up, saying: "His heart was, he wanted to be on the stage". "And eventually, she (Houston) stepped down to lift him up".

The trailer shows the seven-time Grammy victor opening up about the ugly side of celebrity ("People think it's easy, but it's not") and trash-talking fellow singer Paula Abdul ("That girl is singing off-key on the record").

"There were times when I'd look up to God and I'd go, 'Why is this happening to me?" she recalls in vintage footage. "And then Nicole sent me this article about Whitney's rendition of the 'Star Spangled Banner" and how that changed how the song has been understood and sung ever since" he explained. "She's someone who has had such a big impact on culture but is not taken seriously". You can check it out the Miramax and Roadside Attractions in theaters (in North America) starting July 6.
