Whitney Houston Hologram to Embark on World Tour in 2016
For those of you who miss the angelic voice of Whitney Houston, you will get to opportunity to see her perform again live...via a hologram.
Hologram USA have teamed up with Pat Houston, president of the Whitney Houston Estate, to present the late pop icon in hologram form. According to the company, the plan is to create the 3D image and content for distribution on the web via FilmOn.com and other media outlets as well as a live show that can tour the world in 2016.
"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," said Pat Houston in a statement (via Rap-Up). "I look forward to the partnership.”
Morbid as this news sounds, the Whitney Houston hologram tour could turn out to be a great idea if it's well produced. Or, it could go horribly bad if the hologram looks terrible and the production value is crap.
However, the Whitney hologram appears to be in good hands. Hologram USA is the same company that resurrected the late rapper Tupac Shakur onstage at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in 2012.
“I was heartbroken when Whitney passed away in 2012,” says said owner and billionaire Alki David. “The opportunity to help share her spectacular gifts with the world again is exactly what I hoped for when I built the hologram business."
"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.”
We'll have to wait and see.
