When she performed there was an unmatched level of charisma and emotion to it – that’s what we are going to bring to audiences, and it’s an honor to be able to help add to her legacy with this project.”
“A hologram show is all about the imagination and creating a ‘wow factor’ that extends to an incredible experience to enjoy for years to come,” added Whitney’s former manager and president and CEO of The Estate of Whitney E. Houston, Pat Houston. “Whitney is not with us, but her music will live with us forever. We know we made the right decision partnering with BASE because they understand how important it is to produce a phenomenal hologram.”
The showrunner of the production is choreographer Fatima Robinson, who is known for her work directing music videos for artists like Rihanna, Kanye West, and Mary J. Blige. According to Billboard, the show will feature a live band, back-up singers and dancers set to digitally remastered arrangements of Houston’s classic songs.
