WHITNEY HOUSTON ON TOUR

Whitney Houston is back in the news because there is word that she will be going on tour soon.  Okay, of course we all know that Whitney died over 3 years ago but…. plans are to bring her back to life via hologram.  A hologram is  a three-dimensional image of an object that is a photographic record of light interference patterns produced using a photographic plate and light from a laser.

Rolling Stone reports:

The late Whitney Houston will return to the stage as a hologram next year. The project is being organized by Hologram USA in conjunction with Pat Houston, the singer’s sister and president of her estate.

The virtual recreation of Houston will be a multimedia endeavor. Not only will the hologram premiere at a U.S. venue and tour the world, but the content created by FilmOn Studios will be syndicated across all digital and cable platforms. The show will be interactive and feature the singer’s greatest hits alongside as-yet-unannounced special guests.

I want to know.  Is this something that you would go to see?  Let me know what you think.  In the meantime, enjoy Whitney singing “I Have Nothing” from the Bodyguard soundtrack.
