Dionne Warwick Comments on Whitney Houston Hologram Tour: 'It's Stupid'

Whitney Houston‘s cousin Dionne Warwick is reacting to plans for the late singer to be a part of a hologram tour.

The 78-year-old legendary entertainer doesn’t think it’s a good idea for a hologram to perform Whitney‘s hits in front of her original band and backup singers.

“I haven’t a clue as to what that is. It’s surprising to me,” Dionne told Entertainment Tonight.

She added, “I don’t know what it is. I think it’s stupid, but whatever it is that’s what it is.”

In addition to plans for a hologram tour, Whitney‘s estate also announced plans for a new album of unreleased material and a Broadway musical.

Whitney Houston Hologram Tour & New Album in the Works

Whitney Houston‘s estate is planning a hologram tour and a new album of unreleased material from her 1985 debut, Whitney Houston!

The late “I Will Always Love You” singer, who passed away seven years ago, will also potentially have a Broadway musical inspired by her.

The hologram will perform Whitney‘s hits such as “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)” and “The Greatest Love of All,” featuring her original band and backup singers, including her brother Gary.

“Everything is about timing for me,” Whitney’s sister-in-law and former manager, Pat Houston, told The New York Times. “It’s been quite emotional for the past seven years. But now it’s about being strategic.”

The Whitney Houston Estate recently signed a deal with Primary Wave Music Publishing, which reportedly values the estate at $14 million.

As stated in the agreement, Primary Wave will obtain “50 percent of the estate’s assets, which include the singer’s royalties from music and film, merchandising, and the right to exploit her name and likeness.”
