Whitney Houston hologram coming in 2016

A Whitney Houston hologram is coming in 2016 thanks to Pat Houston, President of the Whitney Houston Estate, and Greek billionaire Alki David, the CEO of Hologram USA.

The holographic representation of Whitney Houston will perform in “a major U.S. venue” for a show that will be beamed to TVs and computers around the world via David’s FilmOn.com, according to a press release. The announcement even promises a posthumous international tour after the show’s U.S. debut.

Pat Houston had this to say about the partnership that will — in the words of the press release — “bring back” Whitney Houston. “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.”

David’s Hologram USA will design the Whitney hologram in partnership with her estate. Alki David recently made headlines for teaming up with controversial rapper Chief Keef for his series of attempted holographic concerts.

On February 11, 2012, singer Whitney Houston was found dead in a bathtub in a Beverly Hills, California, hotel. The Los Angeles County coroner later ruled that the 48-year-old's death was <a href="http://www.cnn.com/2012/04/04/showbiz/whitney-houston-toxicology/" target="_blank">an accidental drowning</a> with the "effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use" as contributing factors. Houston won six Grammys and sold 170 million albums, singles and videos over her career. Click through to see images from her life.

When asked about a Whitney hologram in late 2014, Pat Houston expressed mixed feelings. “I don’t know how I would feel about [a hologram] and certainly I’ve been approached to do a project of that magnitude, and I said, ‘No.’ But who knows what the future holds,” she said at the time. “I mean, it’s just been only two and half years. Maybe down the road.”
