Singer and actress Brandy Norwood played the lead role of Cinderella in this re-telling of the classic fairytale. Whitney Houston, of course, iconically played Cinderella’s fairy godmother.

I suggested Brandy. ” And what a successful casting decision that became as over 60 million viewers watched Brandy as Cinderella.
