Whitney Houston’s sister Pat Houston is teaming up with Hologram USA to bring a hologram concert experience to fans next year.
Hologram technology has been used several times in the past to bring late entertainers “back” for their fans – like Tupac. Pat shared why she decided to take this tour on the road in 2016. “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.”
Hologram USA’s CEO shared that it will be a celebration of Whitney as an artist. “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.”
Fans are torn when it comes to this new technology. In one way it feels a little twisted to “bring them back from the dead” but yet it’s a great way for fans to feel connected once again.
I fall squarely in the “creeps me out!” category. I see it in “regular people” terms – like I wouldn’t want my grandmother or my dad or anyone else I know that has passed away coming back as a hologram – no matter what the situation.
