Whitney Houston Hologram To Tour The World In 2017

Published: Saturday 7th May 2016 by Sam

The legendary Whitney Houston is set to return to the stage in 2017 — as a hologram.

And unlike the rumors that swirled about similar projects with stars such as Tupac and Michael Jackson, this project has been jointly confirmed by Hologram USA and Pat Houston, the late singer’s sister-in-law and president of her estate.

Details below…

According to Rolling Stone, the virtual recreation of Houston will be a multimedia endeavour.

Set to debut at a US venue and trek the world, the content created by FilmOn Studios will be syndicated across digital and cable platforms. The show will be interactive and feature the icon’s biggest hits and surprise guests.

Speaking on the ambitious venture, Hologram USA/FilmOn CEO Alki David said:

“I was heartbroken when Whitney passed away in 2012. The opportunity to share her spectacular gifts with the world again is exactly what I hoped for when I built the hologram business. I’m confident we’ll create the ultimate celebration of Whitney’s amazing artistry.”

Pat Houston 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.”

If executed correctly, this “could” be…interesting.

There’ll always be the debate about how “right” it is, but the reality is that the estate needs to find ways to keep the coins coming in and – as Michael Jackson’s Circus Soleil success proved – it can be uber lucrative when a brand is licensed effectively.

  2. BGKC Formerly RihNavy May 7, 2016

    This is so disrespectful & sacrilegious. First Left Eye, then Michael, Now Whitney & soon, Prince. Like…damn, let these people rest in peace instead of using them to make money, smh

    I understand how they want Whitney estate to rise up like MJ, Prince, Mariah, and Madonna by doing this but idk it just dosent seem right especially knowing how special Whitney was Live on stage compared to her singles style. Top of that I always wished she was a writer behind those songs, she had to share of course all that royalty. Dolly Parton be praising Jesus everything she hits the bank thanks to I Will Always Love you.

      Whitney and Dion never liked to put their names where they shouldn´t, unlike several no-songwriters from the current mainstream scene 🙂

    • tellitlikeitis May 7, 2016

      That was so…late..and tired..of u to throw mariahs name in there.

      • emanuel mazo May 19, 2016

        Can we keep the peace?. Mariah and Whitney respected each other. They are both legends.

  4. Ronnie May 7, 2016

    Wrong on so many levels. Just goes to show how people are worth more dead than alive.

  5. Suicide Blonde May 7, 2016

    Why?….The MJ hologram was beyond terrible, i don’t want to even imagine Whitney as one ?

  6. Annalise May 7, 2016

    When are they going to let this poor woman rest in peace! The minute she passed, her ‘family’ immediately started that awful reality television show to try and profit from the media circus. Now they are making a complete mockery of her legacy with this. Pat I am NOT happy with you!

  7. Duffster Lovato May 7, 2016

    This is tragic, they need to let Whitney rest in peace.

  8. BeyTheGr8 May 7, 2016

    That d@mn Pat Houston will do anything regarding Whitney for a dollar!

    • Jane McDonnell May 22, 2019

      You are so wrong! Pat Houston loved Whitney and Whitney loved her. Pat didn’t want to work for Whitney she has her own life with companies and the woman works nonstop. She worked for Whitney because Whitney begged her to. I would trust Pat with my life and I understand what you’re saying but why? Did she do something to you? Do you know her? I know her and she is doing her best to help the family. I don’t want to argue with anyone…but I would like all you haters to tell me how you know all this stuff? Please, if you can prove what you’re saying then put it out there but say who or how you got your info because anyone can make things up. If what you’re saying is a fact then prove it!

    I can’t STAND Pat Houston! Whitney’s estate should be run by a more competent person…not only has Pat made dumb decisions, she didn’t even look after the well being of Bobbi Kristina! She’s basically waited YEARS to get Whitney’s estate going, making sure Bobbi Kristina (the main beneficiary) was out the picture first…now she’s going to do the ultimate disrespect with a hologram tour? Somebody, please break your foot off in Pat Houston’s sorry behind!

    • Jane McDonnell May 22, 2019

      That show was planned long before she passed away! I think you should all take a step back and think about the family she left behind. Do you think it’s easy for them to always have questions thrown at them that are really no one else’s business. It amazes me how hateful people can be. I wish you could live one day in their shoes! I know if it was my sister I wouldn’t even be able to talk. Pat is getting a bad image for trying to keep the legacy alive and yes the music is her legacy and we will always have that. But they will never see her again until they pass. If you don’t agree with it… that’s fine but leave her family alone! If the family is in charge at least they will get paid! I would rather see them get the money than someone like Angela Basset who the family asked not to make that movie. You guys really should do your homework and stop talking about things you know nothing about.

  10. What Now May 7, 2016

    Let the girl rest in peace.

  11. well well May 7, 2016

  12. FOR REAL? May 7, 2016

    Just, NO!

  13. JOHNVIDAL May 7, 2016

    I think a great documentary in the vein of last years Amy is a way better idea and I hope that works. “Amy” was loved by fans, successful box office wise and critically acclaimed too.

  14. Janni May 7, 2016

    This is so disgusting ?

  15. JOHNVIDAL May 7, 2016

    Just one last thought: THAT voice!!! omg…

  16. SayWhat? May 7, 2016

    Why does “the estate” need more coins?
    Whitney is dead and her only child is dead. Thee end.
    The estate gets her royalties so why do “they” need more?
    Get a damn job if you need more.

  17. Bessie May 7, 2016

    I hope they hcone to Washington D.C. I would Love to see her again. 🙂

  18. No favs, just here for the music May 7, 2016

    Ok no I’m sorry but this is just f****** weird. Please stop and milking out the money from this woman even when she’s dead!(RIP) Who is getting this money anyway? Smh do they have NO SHAME??

    • LCgirl May 8, 2016

      If I read right the estate now goes to parents and siblings since there are no other children and no spouse unless otherwise stated in a will. But really, Sissy should step in. Pat was left to run the estate so she is making all these decisions. They will never let Whitney rest in peace.

  19. Royalkev May 7, 2016

    Count me out! I saw the real thing live and that same feeling can’t ever be recreated with a hologram!

  20. Livinginconfusion May 8, 2016

    Please let Whitney rest in peace, they should have showed her all this love and attention while she was alive and maybe things would have been different, all money is not good and she wouldn’t want this

  21. Josh May 8, 2016

    Her hologram is making its debut singing with Christina Aguilera on The Voice!!!
