Whitney Houston Biopic: How Yaya DaCosta Became The Singer

Originally posted 01/17/2015 07:40PM

Whitney Houston is one of the most recognizable singers in the history of music, so Yaya DaCosta did not take it lightly when she was cast to portray the icon in the Lifetime movie Whitney.

"I initially wanted to become her exactly. I was just set to do everything in my power to make the audience almost forget that they weren't really watching Whitney," the former America's Next Top Model contestant, 32, tells PEOPLE. "But then I realized that I only had a few days to prepare. It was more important to try and capture her essence than to go crazy because that could have come across as a mockery."

Whitney Houston's Mother Speaks Out: 'I'm Glad the Lifetime Project Is Finished'

Originally posted 01/17/2015 09:25AM

With the Lifetime biopic Whitney set to air Saturday, Cissy Houston, the mother of the iconic singer, who died in 2012, is speaking out about the TV movie that was made without the family's cooperation.

"I'm glad the Lifetime project is finished," Cissy Houston tells PEOPLE. "I hope from now on her fans will keep her child, [Bobbi Kristina Brown], in their prayers, and I hope people will let my child rest."

Adds a Houston family friend: "The family is not happy about this project. Bobby [Brown] and Whitney had a complicated relationship. I don't even think their loved ones understood it. So, for people who didn't know them to take on what, to some extent, dishonors them – and their relationship – that is the most hurtful."

It was dream-scenario Monday night for Team Pharrell star DaNica Shirey on The Voice.

She sang a few bars of Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing" to the late icon's longtime mentor, Clive Davis, who met with the Top 10 singers and gave Shirey high praise – after she sweetly confided that she'd written an 11th grade biography about Davis's life.
