17 Reasons Brandy Is The Only 'Cinderella' You Need

Brandy will forever be Cinderella.

"Cinderella" is one of those classic stories that's been reimagined so many times that it's hard to tell which version is the definitive version. Luckily, I've got you covered, because the 1997 Rodgers & Hammerstein version, starring Brandy, Whoopi Goldberg, Bernadette Peters, Whitney Houston and basically every amazing actor and actress under the sun is hands down the best ever version of "Cinderella."
