Lifetime has given us our first look at Yaya DeCosta in the role of Whitney Houston.
The former America's Next Top Model contestant will portray this iconic artist in the upcoming biopic I Will Always Love You: The Whitney Houston Story, with Arlen Escarpeta on board as Bobby Brown.
And, based on the following network photo, it looks like producers made the right call, doesn't it? At least based on resemblance?
Houston, of course, died unexpectedly in February 2012 at the age of 48.
She was found dead in her hotel bathtub mere hours before she was scheduled to attend Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammy party.
