Whitney Houston’s estate has announced the late singer will be returning as a hologram.
The legendary How Will I Know songstress passed away at the age of 48 in 2012.
But fans will be seeing her likeness perform again as the star’s sister-in-law Pat Houston, who is also the President of the Whitney Houston Estate, revealed the family is working with Hologram USA on a new three-dimensional laser image of the Grammy-winner.
‘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,’ Pat noted in a statement, according to Entertainment Weekly. ‘I look forward to the partnership.’
Greek billionaire Alki David is the CEO of Hologram USA and FilmOn, a company that will serve as international distributor for the Whitney hologram.
And he is elated to be working in partnership with the singer’s estate to create a perfect 3D image of her.
‘I was heartbroken when Whitney passed away in 2012. The opportunity to help share her spectacular gifts with the world again is exactly what I hoped for when I built the hologram business,’ Alki noted in the press release. ‘We’ve got technology that’s causing a seismic shift in the entertainment industry, and a wonderful partnership with Pat Houston and the estate. I’m confident we’ll create the ultimate celebration of Whitney’s amazing artistry.’
The Whitney hologram is set to debut in 2016 at a major venue in the United States, with a worldwide tour taking place following the premiere.
