Hologram technology has grown in leaps and bounds and it is becoming a highly sought after new form of entertainment. Earlier this week it was announced that the famed Apollo Theater in Harlem will launch a Billie Holiday hologram.
Now, the greatest voice of all time-Whitney Houston-is being brought back in hologram form, and set to tour the world!
The company Hologram USA and Pat Houston, president of the Whitney Houston Estate, have partnered together to create the hologram of the late singer.
Hologram USA president Alki David’s FilmOn Studios will create the content as well as distribute via FilmOn.com and syndicate to all major digital outlets online, on satellite, and cable. The live show will open at a major U.S. venue and tour the world in 2016.
“I was heartbroken when Whitney passed away in 2012,” says David. “The opportunity to help share her spectacular gifts with the world again is exactly what I hoped for when I built the hologram business. 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.”
Pat Houston adds, “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.”
The interactive show will feature some of Houston’s greatest hits and incorporate audiences and special guests.
