Los Angeles, Sep 12 (IANS) A hologram of late singer Whitney Houston will come alive at a show next year, before going on a world tour.
Alki David and his company Hologram USA announced on Friday that they’re developing a digital version of the late superstar with the consent of her estate, reports aceshowbiz.com.
The Houston hologram will make its debut at a show which is scheduled to take place at “a major US venue” next year and will be available through David’s FilmOn.com. Following the concert, Houston will be embarking on a world tour.
“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,” David explained the project.
“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,” he added.
Pat Houston, the deceased singer’s sister-in-law and president of the Houston family, added: “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.”
Houston died in February 2012. She was found unconscious in a hotel room’s bathtub.
