Pat Houston, the popstar's sister-in-law, former manager and now president and chief executive officer of her estate, said in a statement: "Whitney was proud of his family and this included his fans."
"She loved the audience and that's why we know she would love this holographic theatrical concept," said Pat Houston. "An event at this level is something special and the history of the Hologram Base to be totally authentic and respectful has made them the perfect partner. This tour will allow the audience to experience Whitney's incredible voice and passion for music for a long time and help them share this magic with future generations. "
The Base is the company behind another planned celebrity hologram tour.
Last year, Amy Winehouse's estate announced plans to produce a hologram tour to celebrate the singer's legacy.
The Grammy Award-winning singer Winehouse died of accidental alcohol poisoning in 2011. She was 27 years old.
Brian Becker, president and chief executive officer of Base Entertainment and Hologram Base, said in a statement that "Whitney Houston was undoubtedly one of the most important singers of any generation."
"She was a talent beyond words, and her influence and art transcended all boundaries – music, fashion and cinema." His career has inspired many musicians of all genres and generations and we are honored that his family is entrusting part. of his legacy to us. We look forward to working with them and helping share their magnificent gift with the public of all generations. "
The announcement comes in the wake of the news last week that the Houston estate has signed a contract with Primary Wave Music Publishing to acquire 50% of the property's assets, including music and movie royalties, merchandising and the rights to its name and image.
There are also plans for other projects, including a new album and a possible Broadway musical.
"It's all about time for me," she said. "It's been very emotional for the past seven years, but now it's about being strategic."
