07 Aug 2014
Brandy and Whitney Houston in the 1997 ABC telefilm "Cinderella." Seventeen years before Keke Palmer is to tackle the role of Cinderella, Brandy and Whitney Houston, under Walt Disney Television's progressive eye, broke racial boundaries by telling a classic story from a multi-cultural perspective. Executive produced by Houston herself, this is a beautiful example of making a bold statement by re-defining and re-examining type.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
