- The late music icon has been announced to return to the world stage as a hologram in 2017.
Following the shelved initial announcement of late music icon, Whitney Houston‘s hologram world tour, it has now been confirmed the singer’s image would embark on the tour in 2017.
The tour which was first billed to hold in 2016 was shelved for unknown reasons, similar to the unaccomplished announcement of same honour of legendary pop icon, Michael Jackson and rapper, Tupac Shakur.
Confirming Whitney’s hologram honour which is set to debut at a US venue, the Hologram USA/Filton Studios CEO Alki David said of the venture: ‘I was heartbroken when Whitney passed away in 2012. The opportunity to share her spectacular gifts with the world again is exactly what I hoped for when I built the hologram business. I’m confident we’ll create the ultimate celebration of Whitney’s amazing artistry.‘
Pat Houston – Whitney’s sister in-law and president of the late singer’s estate – also said of the 3D technology invention, ‘It’s a great opportunity for her fans to see a reinvention of one the most celebrated female artists in history and to continue a legacy of performances that will not be forgotten in years to come.’
Whitney Houston was found dead in a bathtub in her guest room on the eve of the 2012 Grammy Awards. Her daughter, Bobbi Kristina also died of similar circumstances in July 2015.
