Earlier this week, it was reported that R&B powerhouse Deborah Cox would be supplying the singing vocals for actress YaYa DaCosta’s role as Whitney Houston in the highly-anticipated upcoming Lifetime film set for 2015. Upon that announcement, the common consensus was that Cox is a great choice, and now we can hear what onscreen Whitney will sound like on stage!
TMZ got their hands on audio of Cox covering Whitney's mega hit “I Will Always Love You” for a live performance sequence. A statement from Lifetime states that the "music rights and clearances are still being worked out," but after listening to this, we hope it clears completely because Cox sounds great!
Since Whitney was called "The Voice," this should, in a sense, bring the icon back to life.
