LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) – Days after Whitney Houston’s estate announced a major deal with Primary Wave Music Publishing to acquire 50% of the late pop icon’s assets, her estate has now revealed that Houston will also be getting the full hologram treatment.
Pat Houston, the singer’s sister-in-law, former manager and now president and chief executive officer of her estate, said in a statement, “Whitney prided herself on her family and that included her fans. She adored her audiences and that’s why we know she would have loved this holographic theatrical concept.”
Brian Becker, chairman and chief executive officer of Base Entertainment and Base Hologram, the company behind the forthcoming hologram tour as well as others like Amy Winehouse, said, “Whitney Houston was unquestionably one of the most important singers of any generation. She was a talent beyond words, and her influence and artistry transcended all boundaries – music, fashion, and film. Her career inspired so many musicians across all genres and generations and we are honored that her family is entrusting part of her legacy to us. We look forward to working with them and helping to share her magnificent gift with audiences of all generations.”
Houston, who died in 2012 at the age of 48 following an accidental drowning, remains one of the best-selling recording artists in history, with over 200 million records sold worldwide.
