Whitney also mentored budding artists, with singers such as Brandy, Monica, and Mariah Carey all citing strong influence from her guiding hand. She would eventually abandon the pretense and don the fairy godmother outfit outright in 1997, in a race-inclusive retelling of the Cinderella fairy tale. The hit TV film features Brandy as the lead and was made under Whitney’s production company, BrownHouse Productions. Intimate behind-the-scenes moments capture the relationship Whitney had with Brandy as they worked on recording layered and textured vocals for the musical: Whitney consistently nurtured and validated the younger singer’s skill and capability while pushing her to step up to the next level. Just a few years later, Brandy would deliver Full Moon to the world and be given her own honorific: the “vocal bible.”
