Whitney Houston’s Hologram Is Going On Tour
Who knew watching Sci-Fi movies growing up that holograms would be used to resurrect deceased musicians for concerts and performances from beyond the grave? How bad must the show go on? Bad enough apparently.
While Whitney Houston rests in peace, the singer’s hologram will be dancing with somebody when it goes on tour next year. Yup, Nippy’s joining Tupac and Michael Jackson in the creepy hologram business.
Hologram USA, the company behind the Holiday hologram, announced Friday that it will also develop a digital version of the late “How Will I Know” singer with the consent of her estate. In 2016 the Houston hologram will “perform” a live concert, to be streamed on the website FilmOn, at a major venue before embarking on a tour. (Hologram USA and FilmOn share a CEO, Greek billionaire Alki David.)
“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, who is the head of the late singer’s estate as well as her sister-in-law, in a statement accompanying the announcement.
If they hologram Bobbi Kris and re-create Whitney singing “My Love Is Your Love” like she did in 1999, these people are going straight to hell.
