Forever “The Voice:” Madame Tussauds Unveils Wax Tribute To Whitney Houston

It’s funny how time flies.  It feels like just yesterday the world sat in collective shock as news spread like wildfire across the globe that America’s sweetheart, “The Voice,”  Whitney Houston was dead.  Now, two days away from the one year anniversary of her passing, the famed Madame Tussauds wax museum has unveiled four brand new statues of the late icon, each from a different period in her stellar 30 year career.

The unveiling will mark the first time in the more than 200-year history of Madame Tussauds that four distinct wax likenesses of a single subject representing different points of their life have been created.  Molded at the museum’s London studio, the four shades of Whitney will be spread out to different cities across the country.  Las Vegas will receive “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” Whitney, Los Angeles gets “The Bodyguard” Whitney, New York receives a statue of Whitney from a 2009 photoshoot and D.C gets a statue designed in honor of Whitney’s historic Super Bowl performance.

Whitney’s sister-in-law, friend and manager, Pat Houston gave praises on behalf of the Houston family saying:

“We were extremely honored when Madame Tussauds approached us about doing four figures of Whitney from different points in her 30-year career.  This is something we are excited to do for the fans.”

The New York City statute of Whitney Houston will be revealed today and all four will become permanent exhibits at all of the Madame Tussauds locations.
