A Whitney Houston hologram tour is coming, according to the late singer’s former manager Pat Houston, as well as a new album and maybe even a show on Broadway.
Pat Houston is also Whitney Houston’s sister in law and executor of the estate, and she said the family wasn’t ready to conduct business deals for the legendary artist since she passed seven years ago. But now they are.
In fact, a new deal was recently signed with Primary Wave Music Publishing to release Whitney Houston related projects and items.
Meanwhile, the company Base is putting on the hologram tour, which Pat Houston said the “All At Once” singer would’ve loved. Her original band and backup singers will be on the tour as well.
“She adored her audiences, and that’s why we know she would have loved this holographic theatrical concept,” said Pat Houston in a statement. “An event at this level is something special and Base Hologram’s track record to be fully authentic and respectful made them the perfect partner.”
“This upcoming tour will allow audiences to experience Whitney’s amazing voice and passion for music for a long time to come and help them share that magic with future generations,” she added.
As for the newly released music, a lot of it will come from recording sessions from the singer’s debut album “Whitney Houston.” Pat Houston also said the music will remind people why they became fans of the New Jersey native when she first hit the scene.
“Before she passed, there was so much negativity around the name; it wasn’t about the music anymore,” she stated. “People had forgotten how great she was. They let all the personal things about her life outweigh why they fell in love with her in the first place.”
Pat Houston also said besides the Broadway production, a Las Vegas-style show could also be on the way.
Whitney Houston passed away in 2012 in an accidental drowning at the Beverly Hills Hotel. A cocktail of medications as well as cocaine were found in her body afterwards.
Other late celebrities which hologram shows have been designed include Michael Jackson and Tupac Shakur.
