In three days, it will be a year since the passing of mega superstar singer/actress, Whitney Houston. Am I the only one still feeling the loss? In honor of her memory, Madame Tussauds will create four varying depictions, each from an iconic point in her life.
The sculptures, created in Tussauds’ London studio, will be on display four US cities. Whitney performing the National Anthem at the 1991 Super Bowl XXV will be seen at the museum location in Washington D.C. while ingenue Whitney from the “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)” video will be available at the Las Vegas site. New York will honor the fallen star with a recent likeness of her from a 2009 photo shoot from her latest and last album, “I Look To You,” and Hollywood will glow with Whitney from her roll in “The Bodyguard.”
“We were extremely honored when Madame Tussauds approached us about doing four figures of Whitney from different points in her 30-year career,” says Pat Houston, Whitney’s manager and sister-in-law in a statement on behalf of the family. “This is something we are excited to do for the fans.”
This is the first time in Madame Tussauds’ 200-year history that four distinct wax sculptures have been created for one subject concurrently.
Whitney you are missed.
To celebrate her life instead of mourning her death, I have included videos of Ms. Houston for all of us to remember her spirit and her talent.
