Are you ready to see the late Whitney Houston take the stage again? Like Tupac, Michael Jackson, and Selena — Whitney’s getting her likeness re-created as a hologram.
In a partnership announced today Whitney Houston’s aunt and the President of the Whitney Houston Estate, Pat Houston, and Hologram USA will develop a hologram of the late singer. They will debut the live show at a U.S. venue and FilmOn will distribute the content worldwide. The show will reportedly feature the hologram performing a selection of her greatest hits and promises, via its announcement release, to be “interactive, incorporating audiences and special guests.”
In a statement, Pat said,”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. I look forward to the partnership.”
Greek billionaire and Hologram USA and FilmOn CEO, Alki David, added, “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. 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.”
It doesn’t matter how many artists get them, the whole ‘hologram’ thing will forever remain a little creepy to us.
