Whitney Houston Gets Wax Treatment in London
Her untimely death is still fresh in the air, and Whitney Houston was immortalized in wax thanks to Madame Tussauds.
The “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” songstress’ likeness was unveiled in London on Monday (October 21), and a choir of 30 gospel singers also showed up to provide a proper welcome.
Madame Tussauds’ Nicole Fenner told press, “We are very excited to be welcoming Whitney Houston on to our London music stage for the next eight weeks. This is a very special figure as it was created after Whitney’s very sad and untimely death with the close co-operation of her family, who were delighted by the results.”
Colin Vassell of the London Gospel Factory Choir added, “Whitney Houston is one of the most talented singers of her – or any – generation and we were delighted to welcome her wax figure to London. She is a personal hero of mine so to get to stand alongside her and sing was a slightly surreal but awesome experience. We chose a song she performed in the film ‘The Preacher’s Wife’ because it is so uplifting and great fun to perform. We hope we did her justice.”
