The estate for Whitney Houston has revealed plans to release an album of unreleased material by the late singer, as well a proposed tour featuring her image brought to life in hologram.
With Primary Wave's global appeal and wealth of contacts, the partnership will advance the artistry and integrity of Whitney's legacy to a stratosphere that she herself left us all to enjoy for a lifetime," Pat Houston, the late artist's sister-in-law and executor of the estate, said in a statement.
"Before she passed, there was so much negativity around the name; it wasn't about the music anymore," Pat Houston told The New York Times.
"People had forgotten how great she was. They let all the personal things about her life outweigh why they fell in love with her in the first place."
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.
"Whitney Houston is an incomparable artist whose voice resonates in people's lives to this day," said Lawrence Mestel, head of Primary Wave, which focuses on marketing classic catalogues of megawatt names including Bob Marley, Smokey Robinson and Def Leppard.
"She is the definition of an icon and we are thrilled to partner with Pat Houston and the entire Houston family to further the legacy of this legendary artist."
