The film assembled the incredible staff members, helmed by “Harriet” director Kasi Lemmons, penned by “Bohemian Rhapsody’s” writer Anthony Mccarten. A highly anticipated holiday season film, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” revealed a “no-holds-barred” portrait of of the complex and multifaceted artist behind her amazing voice. Ackie tackles Houston’s highs and lows of turbulent life, starting from her early childhood as a New Jersey choir girl to becoming one of the best-selling and most-awarded recording artists of all time.

And I think when I’m able to simplify it down to that, I’ll be able to handle the pressure,” Ackie added.

I Wanna Dance With Somebody” is set to release exclusively in movie theaters on Dec. 23.
