Legacy RecordingsLast week, we learned that a deal is in the works to bring the late Whitney Houston back to the stage in hologram form. Now, Alki David, the CEO of Hologram USA, has revealed what fans can expect.
In an interview with Billboard, the Greek billionaire says the Houston hologram show will incorporate both “live components” drawing from the late singer’s own live performances, “digital components, in the same way that Tupac and Snoop Dogg interacted on stage at Coachella,” as well as a narrative structure.
“The show will not just be Whitney comes on, sings and gets off,” David adds. “The narrative will document parts of her life, her achievements and celebrate Whitney.”
He adds that the the company is working closely with Houston’s estate and that “the musical arrangement, the choreography right down to the lighting and the design will be done with the original artists and original technicians and composers who worked with Whitney in the past so as to maintain absolute authenticity.”
David adds the company is planning to debut the show in “about a year. We need to finalize the script [for the show],” he explains, before assuring it “should be a relatively smooth process.”
According to the company, the plan is to create the hologram and content for distribution on the web via FilmOn.com and various traditional media outlets, as well as to create a live show that can tour the world in 2016.
