The Whitney hologram was slated to perform a duet of “I’m Every Woman” with Christina Aguilera during the 2016 finale of “The Voice,” but was scrapped because it “was not ready to air,” according to Houston’s estate.
FilmOn founder Alki David went back and retooled the image for the “Hologram Icons” show. However, he didn’t get approval from Houston’s estate to release it, and doesn’t feel he needed to.
Whitney’s estate is currently weighing their legal options since this was done without permission.
Last year, the Whitney Houston Estate announced their own plans for a Whitney hologram that would perform her music on tour.
