But according to Houston’s sister-in-law and former manager, Pat Houston, this is what the singer would’ve wanted.
“In the spirit of Whitney, I know we’re doing all the right things right now. This is something that she wanted to do. I get very emotional watching this, because it is so, so close to what she wanted.”
As for the critics, Pat Houston also addressed them:
“Of course she doesn’t look like her. She is a hologram. If you are coming for a Whitney’s experience then it’s the place to be. Just let’s the music play!”
Well in any case this show, or rather the hoopla behind it, is something to behold.
