Just a few days after we found out that Billie Holiday’s hologram would be gracing (grazing?) the Apollo stage comes the announcement that Whitney Houston will be getting her own digital avatar as well. Hologram USA — the same company behind pretty much all of the recent swath of holograms — and Pat Houston, president of the late singer’s estate and her sister-in-law, are planning to put on a live show that, according to a press release, “will open at a major U.S. venue and tour the world” next year. The performance will also be distributed online, and on satellite and cable providers.
“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,” Pat Houston said in a statement.
