According to the New York Times, ever since Houston died in 2012 at the age of 48, Pat Houston, the performer’s sister-in-law and former manager has turned down every project they have been pitched until now.
Now, she believes it’s the right time to launch a tour…of her hologram singing saying, “Everything is about timing for me… it’s been quite emotional for the past seven years. But now it’s about being strategic.”
We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with The Estate of Whitney E. Houston to celebrate #WhitneyHouston‘s incredible legacy in “An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour” set to commence early 2020. Stay tuned in the coming months for more info! pic.twitter.com/xK26gacXKb

As you can imagine, this isn’t going over very well on social media:
I rebuke and reject this. Let folks rest. More specifically, LET BLACK WOMEN REST. Nip has given us enough and we werent worthy then so we def arent worthy now. https://t.co/ZGAr2I5mjF

Everyone knows I’m a huge Whitney Houston fan. One of my regrets is NEVER being able to see her perform live. I’m not sure about this hologram though. That’s a little too creepy for my liking. They ARE coop & the technology is great technology. Not sure I’d want to see it live… pic.twitter.com/bpkXpwFiJa
