The Whitney Estate about to get active.

Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law and former manager Pat Houston has revealed that she is about to take an aggressive approach to the Whitney estate. In a new interview with the NY Times, Pat revealed that a number of projects centered around the singer’s legacy have been discussed, including a Broadway musical and an album of unreleased tracks.

However, the project closest to realization is a hologram tour. On Monday (May 21st) the Whitney Estate announced they were teaming up with BASE Hologram to produce a hologram tour with Whitney. The tour will be titled An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour and it will be directed by choreographer Fatima Robinson (Dreamgirls) and the hologram will be backed by a live band and singers.

In a press release, Pat had this to say about the tour:

Whitney prided herself on her family and that included her fans. She adored her audiences and that’s why we know she would have loved this holographic theatrical concept,

Again, expect to see a lot of Whitney over the next couple of years. The Whitney Estate signed a deal with marketing company Primary Wave Music Publishing in an attempt to rebuild Houston’s name.

“It’s been quite emotional for the past seven years. But now it’s about being strategic,” Pat said in the NY Times.
