USA (MIFF 1988 , Documentary)
Director: David Davidson

A gospel legend from her work with the 'Sweet Inspirations', this film traces Cissy Houston's career - from smokey clubs to gospel choir rehearsals, from a 'Sweet Inspirations' re-union concert to a waiting Sunday morning service, from a nostalgic Gospel sing in the living room with The Drunkard Singers', to a sold out concert with her daughter Whitney. An intriguing mosaic of archival footage and stills from "The Golden Age of Gospel" and the "Soul Years" complete a film that galvanizes Cissy Houston's connection to the history of R&D, and Gospel.
