Whitney Houston who is now late will once again take to the stage for a UK tour but in the form of a hologram. People are a little conflicted about the whole and think its a little awkward.
Virtual Whitney will be projecting all over the country next year according to a report from Music Week. Seth Faber, the Senior Vice President of Primary Wave, the music and marketing company who have signed a deal with Whitney Houston’s estate in order to create the show, has said, “So much effort has gone into making the show as authentic as possible, it’s going to be a phenomenal experience.” His company now own half of Whitney’s estate and half of any profits made.
The tour will be supported by the singer’s original backing singers and band, including her half-brother Gary, who toured with her nine times while she was alive. Reports say all the biggest Whitney tracks will be performed too, including ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’ and ‘I Have Nothing’.
Other family members are also on board, with Pat Houston, Whitney’s sister-in-law and former manager, telling press, “The hologram has taken precedence over everything. Before she [Whitney] passed, there was so much negativity around the name – it wasn’t about the music anymore. 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.”
Legendary singer, Whitney Houston was tragically found dead in a bathtub at the age of 48, with the autopsy stating it was due to a combination of drowning, cocaine use and coronary heart disease.
This new deal may also see a Broadway musical on the cards and an album of unreleased tracks from Whitney.
