Whitney Houston’s estate unveils plans for a hologram tour… seven years after singer’s death at age 48

A Whitney Houston hologram tour is now in the works, seven years after the singer died at age 48 at The Beverly Hilton.  

The singer’s estate unveiled plans for the tour in an interview with The New York Times, revealing the project will see the songs I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me) and The Greatest Love Of All back on stage.  

Whitney’s original band and backup singers will join along for the tour, along with her brother Gary Houston, who previously provided backup vocals at her concerts.

‘The hologram has taken precedence over everything,’ Whitney’s sister-in-law and former manager Pat Houston said.  

Whitney’s estate is now focused on revitalizing the late star’s business and image, after years of turning down business pitches involving the late singer.   

‘Everything is about timing for me,’ Pat explained. ‘It’s been quite emotional for the past seven years. But now it’s about being strategic.’ 

Last week, the estate inked a deal with the boutique music and marketing company Primary Music Publishing, an agreement which will see the New York-based company acquire 50 percent of the estate’s assets.

Sources told the New York Times the deal values the estate at $14 million.  

The sky seems to be the limit when it comes to future Whitney-related projects.  

Larry Mester, Primary Wave’s founder, said he was already talking with Broadway producers about a musical and a Vegas-style project.

Unused tracks from her debut album Whitney Houston may appear on an album of unreleased music. 

Whitney is a Grammy-award winning singer whose list of hits include Saving All My Love For You, The Greatest Love Of All, How Will I Know, and Didn’t We Almost Have It all.

She died at age 48 after accidentally drowning in a bath at The Beverly Hilton hotel, and coroner’s report said heart disease and cocaine were contributing factors.   

Whitney was married to fellow hit-maker Bobby Brown from 1992 to 2007, and together they had daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, who died at age 22 in 2015. 

She was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her Georgia home, and spent the final six months of her life in a medically induced coma.
