Over seven years since the untimely passing of R&B legend, Whitney Houston, her sister-in-law and former manager Pat Houston has revealed that there are several projects in the works to honor the singer’s legacy. Those projects include a Broadway musical, an album of unreleased tracks, and a hologram tour. The hologram tour is underway, and probably the first of those projects to be actualized.
Whitney’s estate is teaming up with BASE Holograms, the producers of various other artists’ holograms, to bring the An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour. The choreography for the concert will be created by Fatima Robinson, who has previously worked on various big films and music videos including Dreamgirls. The Whitney hologram will be backed by a live band and singers.
These motions to preserve and exalt Whitney Houston’s legacy come after many years of pain on the part of her family. Pat Houston says that after these seven emotional years, she is ready to get strategic. Pat Houston had this to say regarding the upcoming tour:
“Whitney prided herself on her family and that included her fans. She adored her audiences and that’s why we know she would have loved this holographic theatrical concept.”
Whitney Houston’s death (2/11/2012) was devastating for family and fans alike. What has been similarly painful is the way that her name has been degraded after the cause of her death was ruled an overdose. The upcoming projects, in addition to The Whitney Estate’s new deal with marketing company Primary Wave Music Publishing, hopes to preserve the legacy of one of the most iconic singers of all time.
