Seven years after Whitney Houston died, the superstar is set to go on tour again. Primary Wave Music Publishing announced last week it has just signed a deal with Whitney’s estate, and is planning for a series of potential projects — including a “hologram” tour, a Broadway musical and an album of unreleased songs.

The pop diva’s hologram, joined by her original band and backup singers — including her elder brother Gary Houston — will perform her megahits. “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, who is Gary’s wife and executor of the estate, said in a statement.

A hologram is a 3D projection. In 2016, Whitney’s hologram performed a duet with singer Christina Aguilera for a TV show. Although the broadcast of the performance was eventually canceled, due to technical difficulties, many fans were moved to tears when seeing her come to life when the footage was leaked online.
