Whitney Houston’s stunning wax figure visits Madame Tussauds London from New York
Here in London we're paying tribute to internationally renowned music icon, Whitney Houston, as we welcome her stunning wax figure from Madame Tussauds New York for an eight week visit from 17th October, 2013.
The figure is inspired by the singer’s 2009 ‘I Look to You’ comeback album and portrays her smiling broadly with her arms gently outstretched. She is wearing a glamorous floor length gold sequined gown with sleek shoulder length hair.
"The figure was created with the close co-operation of her family who were delighted with the results."
“We are very excited to be welcoming Whitney Houston to our London music stage,” commented our PR Manager, Nicole Fenner. “This is a very special figure as it was created after her very sad and untimely death with the close co-operation of her family who were delighted by the results. She will be joining fellow female icons, Adele, Rihanna and Madonna and we are sure guests will love the opportunity to step on stage with one of the world’s most celebrated musical talents,” Nicole added.
The figure was unveiled by members of the Houston family in the USA last year and is one of four created to celebrate Houston’s life and career. The other figures are featured in our attractions in Washington DC (based on Houston’s ‘Star Spangled Banner’ Super Bowl performance), Hollywood (based on the singer’s movie appearance in ‘The Bodyguard’) and Las Vegas (inspired by Houston’s early smash hit ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’). This will be the first time any of the figures have been seen outside the USA.
