Lifetime's upcoming Whitney Houston biopic will feature some of the singer's big hits, though it won't be Whitney's voice, or the voice of former America's Next Top Model runner-up Yaya DaCosta , the star of the movie, we'll be hearing.

A Lifetime rep tells E! Online the honor will go to R&B singer Deborah Cox .

The rep says "music rights and clearances are still being worked out," but Cox will be providing the "vocal tracks."

Angela Bassett , who co-starred with Houston in the 1995 film Waiting to Exhale , will be making her directorial debut with the biopic, which will reportedly focus on Houston's relationship with Bobby Brown .

Houston's family is not involved with the production.

The movie is set to premiere next year.
