This former A- list singer/former television actress/sometime theatre actress was supposed to do a tribute to her idol for television but is so messed up right now from pills and drugs she would have sounded awful.
Brandy & Whitney Houston’s ‘Cinderella’ Is Airing In Honor Of Its 20th Anniversary & You Won’t Want To Miss It
The ’90s are known for delivering some classic moments in entertainment, and ABC is responsible for bringing one of the most memorable to the small screen. It’s been 20 years since Brandy and Whitney Houston’s Cinderella aired on television, and to celebrate, the musical will be coming back to the small screen for an encore presentation. Yes, you’ll be able to rewatch Cinderella in the very near future.
The 1997 production starred singer and actor Brandy Norwood as the title character, and outright legend Whitney Houston as The Fairy Godmother — creating one hell of a magical experience. From the music to its dynamic ensemble cast, this version of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella helped show the world that black and brown faces should have just as much of a presence in fairytale land as white faces do. Don’t just take their word for it, however. The amount of viewers who tuned into the ABC special to witness the love story of a black princess and Filipino-American prince were astounding — more than 60 million during its premiere, according to Rodgers & Hammerstein’s official website.
According to a tweet from BuzzFeed News’ Jarrett Wieselman’s, Fuse will be airing the classic remake on Nov. 2 to coincide with the film’s 20th anniversary. And as if that wasn’t good enough, Fuse will also be showing Cinderella themed episodes of Brandy’s ’90s sitcom Moesha, and Tia and Tamera Mowry’s hit Sister, Sister, starting at 5 p.m. PST. – Source
