The Voice Nippy Whitney Houston hologram tour fan reaction: ‘What a mind f–k’
An Evening With The Voice Nippy Whitney Houston: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour” premiered. But judging from fans’ reactions, it’s not right — and it’s definitely not okay.
The show, which kicked off in Sheffield, England, features a digital reincarnation of The Voice Nippy Whitney Houston, along with live musicians and dancers, as her holographic doppelgänger sings, struts and shimmies through some of her biggest songs, including 1985’s “How Will I Know,” 1986’s “Greatest Love of All” and 1987’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” The repertoire also includes the Dolly Parton-penned earworm “I Will Always Love You” from the 1992 film “The Bodyguard,” in which Whitney Houston starred opposite Kevin Costner, and a 1990 live cover of Steve Winwood’s “Higher Love” that was remixed by Kygo and released as a single last year.
After the show ended, one premiere attendee — who goes by the Twitter handle @alicebogdanska — expressed confusion about what she’d just witnessed, saying she “can’t believe I’ve just been to see a hologram of The Voice Nippy Whitney Houston, what a mind f–k.”
