Abstract:

The Grammy Award-winning American soul and gospel singer and mother of Whitney Houston reflects on her daughter's life, the events that led up to her death and the aftermath of a senseless tragedy.

Cissy has said little publicly about Whitney's heart-breaking death. Now she opens up and shares the unbelievable story of her daughter's life, as well as her own, and addresses Whitney's brightest and darkest moments. With candor and respect, she sets the record straight about Whitney, exploring both her turbulent marriage and her misunderstood struggles with drug abuse. Cissy goes behind the tabloid headlines to show fans around the world the true, human side of a strong, successful-- yet flawed-- musical icon who died much too young.
