In the battle of documentaries and biopics depicting the life of Whitney Houston and the ones around her, Clive Davis's upcoming project chronicling his own life as a music industry mogul, is grabbing significant eyeballs for presenting another spectrum detailing various aspects of Houston's personal life.

Davis however firmly stresses that his movie, 'The Soundtrack of Our Lives', unlike others, will provide a more wholesome picture of who Whitney Houston really was.

Speaking to entertainment weekly, the legendary record producer spoke on witnessing Houston's battle with substance addiction taking a toll on her health. "We were hopeful that after the interview with Oprah Winfrey that she had permanently eradicated this terribly lethal problem," Davis told EW. "Knowing that she did not beat it, there will always be pain at her much-too-early passing."

Davis also talked about the letter, he wrote to the late legend after witnessing the drastic changes in her physical appearance at the Michael Jackson: 30th anniversary Celebration in 2001.

"I wrote her that letter after I saw her at Madison Square Garden, where, as the film shows, she was quite the skeleton while performing," he recalled. "It brought a gasp to me and the realization of how serious her drug problem was. Of course, I wrote the letter and tried so hard."

Despite, another recently released unauthorized documentary by British filmmaker, Nick Broomfield depicting a different image of the late icon, Davis insists that his film "shows a more complete picture of who Whitney was" than anything we’ve seen yet.

'The Soundtrack of Our Lives' has been released in the United States on 27 September and will feature the record executive's association with several other acts, apart from Houston, throughout his decorated career - including the likes of Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, Barry Manilow and more.
