She told the paper a hologram tour featuring the artist's laser-generated likeness is the first priority of the new contract, which could be followed by branding deals and a potential Broadway musical.

The choice to launch a hologram tour comes as part of an exclusive deal Houston's estate signed with Primary Wave Music Publishing, a boutique music and marketing company based in NY.

Whitney Houston's estate announced a slew of new projects featuring the beloved singer, including a hologram tour, a new album or previously unreleased songs, a possible Broadway musical and a Vegas show.

"It's been quite emotional for the past seven years", said Pat Houston, Whitney's sister-in-law and former manager.

Pat added: "The hologram has taken precedence over everything".

Primary Waves will acquire a 50 percent stake of Houston's estate, valued at $14 million.

Rapper Tyler, the Creator forced to cancel United Kingdom gig
Tyler's tweet incited massive crowds blocking the street and a few individuals climbing gates. "They go [t] nervous". According to a now-deleted post, the rapper claimed it got "Too rowdy, cops canceled it, go home".

Pat stressed that despite the personal chaos depicted in the documentaries and the tabloid press, Whitney was not struggling financially at the time of her death.

She died at age 48 after accidentally drowning in a bath at The Beverly Hilton hotel, and coroner's report said heart disease and cocaine were contributing factors.

Primary Wave has moved aggressively into the catalog business since its founding in 2006, and works with assets from Smokey Robinson, Bob Marley, Def Leppard and Kenny Logins.

BASE Hologram chief executive Brian Becker said: "Whitney Houston was unquestionably one of the most important singers of any generation". The singer's final decade was marred by substance abuse, discord surrounding her troubled marriage to singer Bobby Brown, and subpar albums and concert performances. "People had forgotten how great she was".

Houston isn't the only superstar to be immortalized in hologram form and it was announced previous year that the estate of the late Amy Winehouse - who passed away aged 27 in 2011 - teamed up with the BASE Hologram company to create a virtual likeness of the star, which will go out on the road with a live band and backing singers to perform "digitally remastered" versions of her classic hits.
