The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour Jumps-Off February 23, 2020
As previously reported by HotNewHipHop the hologram tour starring the late music icon, Whitney Houston, jumps-off next week in Europe. Pat Houston, Whitney's former sister-in-law, manager and CEO of her estate said she believes, fans deserve to see her again. Houston said of the tour "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 Whitney Houston Estate launched promotional details on social media for the upcoming Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour including the cities and venues for the European leg. Houston explained "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." The first stop presented by Base Hologram is January 23,2020 in Mexico! If you’re wondering how the concert producers are going to pull this off they’re using extensive CGI synthesizing and hundreds of hours of her old performances along with a body double.
Marty Tudor, CEO of BASE Hologram explained how this will all work. He said, “We created the hologram the same way they did Carrie Fisher in the Star Wars movie Rogue One." He added is wasn't easy by any stretch of the imagination. Tudor continued. “It’s lengthy, it’s tedious, it’s a big, complicated process, but I think it worked.”

Finally may God's grace be with the daughters, family and friends of acting legend, Ja'net Dubois. The timeless performer graced the stage for decades on the ground-breaking sitcom, Good Times, reportedly passed away unexpectedly. Dubois was best known for her role as the sassy-sexy single neighbor, Willona Woods, of Evans family.
The multi-talented superstar famously sang and co-wrote the theme song for another groundbreaking 70's sitcom,The Jeffersons. She appeared in movies like, including "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka", "Tropic Thunder" and "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle." She began her career performing on Broadway alongside Sammy Davis Jr. and Louis Gossett Jr., in a number of plays to include "Golden Boy"and "A Raisin In The Sun."
Her light will be missed. Mrs. Dubois was found at her home in Glendale, Calif. where presumably passed in her sleep. She was 75 and is survived by her daughters. Rest in sweet power!
