The life and musical career of the late Whitney Houston will be examined in the Showtime documentary, Whitney. “Can I Be Me.” The cable giant announce today that it would premiere the Nick Broomfield film on August 26 at 9 p.m., just 17 days after what would have been Houston’s 53rd Birthday.

From the looks of the trailer below, the film will feature rare, never-before-seen video, photos and archival footage of Houston’s personal and professional life. It will also explore how success and fame played a role in her ultimate demise and much more.
