Lena Horne Biopic...

Lena Horne has reportedly agreed to let Whitney Houston play her in an upcoming biopic about her life.  Lena Horne is arguably most famous for the song 'Stormy Weather', but aside from being an accomplished jazz singer, she was a pioneer for Black actors on the silver screen during the 40s and 50s when racism prevented her from having significant parts in movies.

Read the Contact Music report 'Whitney Gets A Boost From Horne', stating Whitney wrote to Lena Horne recently requesting the opportunity to take on the role.

Evans Thanks Whitney For Her Support

Hip-hop star FAITH EVANS is forever indebted to WHITNEY HOUSTON for coming to her aid when she was arrested for marijuana and cocaine possession last year (04).

The former wife of NOTORIOUS B.I.G and her husband TODD RUSSAW were arrested in Georgia after they were pulled over for a routine traffic violation - when drugs were found in their car.

And the couple's Atlanta neighbour, Whitney, was one of the first to offer her support.

Evans says, "Everyone down to Whitney Houston was calling. She was like, 'Are the kids OK? Do they need a ride to school?'"

Alicia Keys Duet Rumour...

[From Sky Showbiz]

Taken from Neil Sean's Gossip Column:

Stunning singer Alicia Keys plans to get Whitney Houston back on top with a new track that she's penned for the soul star. The all-conquering Falling star has had a track planned with the singing diva for some time, as she told my mole: "We were supposed to hook up for the last album, after all we were both discovered by the same manager but the whole idea fell through."

She adds: "It's looking great as I have written a duet for her and she loves it! We plan to get it down and onto the next album. I drew on her for inspiration, she was the voice that made me want to become a musician and I'm overjoyed that she loves the track." All That I Can Give will show just what a fine performer Whitney is... and please those fans who've missed her - including Alicia.
