When Whitney Houston’s biopic aired on Lifetime this year, many people felt like the movie didn’t do the late singer justice. Now, Houston will return to television in a new light. According to reports, Hologram USA will bring the singer back as a hologram for a world tour special. Alki David, CEO of Hologram USA and FilmOn, will work with the family to create a hologram and will show the concert through both digital and cable outlets. “I was heartbroken when Whitney passed away in 2012,” said David. “The opportunity to help share her spectacular gifts with the world again is exactly what I hoped for when I built the hologram business. We’ve got technology that’s causing a seismic shift in the entertainment industry, and a wonderful partnership with Pat Houston and the estate — I’m confident we’ll create the ultimate celebration of Whitney’s amazing artistry.” Read more.
