Whitney Houston Hologram to Tour World in 2016.

In a partnership announced today Whitney Houston’s aunt and the President of the Whitney Houston Estate, Pat Houston, and Hologram USA will develop a hologram of the late singer. Pat Houston, Whitney’s sister-in-law and president of her estate, said in a statement that the hologram is “a great opportunity for her fans to see a reinvention of one the most celebrated female artists in history and to continue a legacy of performances that will not be forgotten in years to come.” Created by David’s FilmOn Studios, the show will include Whitney’s greatest hits and will be interactive, incorporating audiences and special guests. Patsy Cline, Buddy Holly and Bing Crosby are among the deceased icons that Hologram USA and FilmOn are working on to create life-like HD hologram images.

Not only will the hologram premiere at a U.S. venue and tour the world, but the content created by FilmOn Studios will be syndicated across all digital and cable platforms. The technology has also been used to beam Jimmy Kimmel into the Country Music Awards, Julian Assange into the U.S. and rapper Chief Keef into the Chicago area before the controversial performance was shut down. Hologram USA also has a deal with the Apollo Theater in Harlem to make it the first U.S. venue with a long-term hologram stage, which will house performances from the historic venue’s past entertainers.

Whitney Houston died of a combination of heart trouble and cocaine ingestion the day before the 2012 Grammys and hours ahead of a scheduled appearance at mentor Clive Davis’ annual pre-awards gala. Three months to the day after her death, Lifetime announced it had secured “The Houstons: On Our Own,” a reality show that showed her family attempt to work through their grief and pick up the pieces. Last year the same network premiered a strongly contested biopic that chronicled the singer’s highly publicized, tumultuous relationship with R&B singer Bobby Brown from the time they first met during the peak of their fame, to their courtship and through their troubled marriage. Prior to its release, Houston’s mother Cissy attempted to cancel the film, begging the filmmakers to “please, please let her rest.” 2015 may not bring everything that Back to the Future II promised it would: flying cars, self-lacing shoes, we don’t see ’em happening over the next 12 months. (Then again, don’t bet against Nike.) But this year will definitely pack plenty of punch when it comes to cultural happenings. Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again.

Vice President Joe Biden visited the Late Show With Stephen Colbert for an emotional, uplifting 20-minute interview Thursday night where he talked about a potential presidential run, faith and the loss of his son Beau. Stephen Colbert first commended Biden for being that rare politician that speaks what he believes and doesn’t hide behind a façade. “What always confuses me about some folks I worked with is why in God’s name would you want the job if you couldn’t say what you believe,” Biden said. “You would want a job that, in fact, every day you had to get up and modulate what you said and believe.

The vice president poignantly shared stories about his son, who faced tragedy at a young age after being in a car accident that claimed the lives of his mother and sister and severely injured his younger brother. Biden explained how his deep faith guides him through tragedy, and Colbert credits Biden with overcoming the heartbreak and working toward the betterment of America. “My mom had an expression.

She’d say, ‘As long as you’re alive, you have an obligation to strive, and you’re not dead until you’ve seen the face of God,'” Biden said. “It really, really has been imbued in me, my siblings, my mother, my grandfather. However, there was no big announcement to make as Biden admitted to still being too emotionally raw to hit the campaign trail. “I don’t think any man or woman should run for president unless, number one, they know exactly why they would want to be president and two, they can look at folks out there and say, ‘I promise you have my whole heart, my whole soul, my energy, and my passion to do this.’ And I’d be lying if I said that I knew I was there … I’m being completely honest. So sir, I just want to say, your experience and your example of suffering and service is something that would be sorely missed in the race – not that there aren’t good people on both sides running – but I think we’d all be very happy if you did run.
