Kevin Mazur/WireImageWhitney Houston‘s mother, Cissy Houston, has voiced her objections to an upcoming Lifetime biopic about the late singer. But Whitney’s cousin, Dionne Warwick, says she’s taking a “wait-and-see” attitude towards the project.

The biopic, which is being directed by Oscar-nominated actress Angela Bassett and stars America’s Top Model runner-up Yaya DaCosta as Whitney, is expected to air sometime in 2015. Asked her thoughts on the project, Warwick tells ABC News Radio, “I don’t know anything about it, and I’ve kinda chosen to keep on the outside of it, and see it when it happens…and then I’ll have an opinion.”

However, the legendary singer says she’s confident that Bassett will treat Whitney and her story with the respect it deserves.

“I’m certain that Angela wouldn’t do anything to hurt Whitney or the family,” she tells ABC News Radio. “I have a great deal of respect for her and her art, and I’m certain that whatever she chose to depict is gonna be done with style and class. And so, like I said, I’ll wait to see it and then I can speak from a position of strength.”

Right now, Dionne is more focused on her new album, Feels So Good, which arrived in stores this week. It features her duetting with artists ranging from Cyndi Lauper, Ruben Studdard and Billy Ray Cyrus to Gladys Knight, Cee Lo Green and Jamie Foxx.
