Whitney Houston is no longer with us, but the executors of her estate are constantly looking for new ways to honor her legacy. It’s been announced that they’re thinking of paying tribute to the R&B icon with a hologram tour, a new album, and a Broadway musical.
Pat Houston, the sister-in-law of the legendary singer, shared the news with the New York Times and revealed why she feels now is the perfect time to work on this series of projects.
“Everything is about timing for me. It’s been quite emotional for the past seven years. But now it’s about being strategic. People had forgotten how great she was. They let all the personal things about her life outweigh why they fell in love with her in the first place,” explained Houston.
This announcement comes shortly after Primary Wave Music Publishing acquired 50 percent of Whitney Houston’s estate. The new deal includes a potential for a touring hologram, a Broadway musical, branding deals and an album of unreleased songs recorded by six-time Grammy winner, before her death in 2012.
