The late Whitney Houston will live-on and trend forever! #TrendingIcons!
Earlier in February, Madame Tussauds revealed four wax figures in honor of the superstar. The four wax figures were officially unveiled in New York City to honor Houston’s life and will be placed in Madame Tussaud’s locations across the country:
- Washington, DC: Figure features Houston at the 1991 Super Bowl, where she sang the national anthem.
- New York: Figure features a re-creation of a 2009 photo shoot from Whitney’s final studio album.
- Hollywood: Figure features Houston in her breakout performance in the 1999 movie “The Bodyguard”
- Las Vegas: Figure highlights Whitney look from her ’80s hit “I Wanna Dance With Somebody”.
All four wax figures, highlight and immortalize some of the most iconic moments from the singer’s 30-year career.
Houston, who was on the verge of a comeback, with a role in the remake of the movie “Sparkle”, was found dead in the bathtub of a Hollywood hotel last year, one day before the 2012 GRAMMY Awards show- and I’m sure we all recall the emotional tribute to #TheVoice- One of the greatest talents of all times.
Trending FlashBack: The Houston Tribute- Whitney was shouted out a number of times during the 2012 award show— Alicia Keys and Bonnie Raitt mentioned her before their tribute to Etta James; Rihanna exhorted the crowd to “Make some noise for Whitney”: When introducing Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder said, “To Whitney up in heaven, we all love you Whitney”— but the major tribute happened at the end of the in memoriam segment, which segued directly into Jennifer Hudson’s performance of “I Will Always Love You.” The emotional Ms. Hudson delivered a beautiful rendition of Whitney’s signature song.
