Immortalized: Whitney Houston Gets Waxed

Whitney Houston Wax Figure

Madame Tussauds has saluted the late Whitney Houston by immortalizing the iconic pop singer in wax.

The popular wax museum has unveiled four wax statues of Houston. The wax figures were created in London and cost Madame Tussauds $1.2 million in production costs.

The four statues each capture a historic moment in Houston’s storied career, which ended abruptly when the singer died on Feb. 11, 2012.

Houston’s look from 1987 music video for “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” is on display at Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas.

The singer sports a white track suit from her 1991 Super Bowl performance of the National Anthem at the Washington, DC location of the museum.

Madame Tussauds in Hollywood has a replica of Houston from her 1992 film, “The Bodyguard.”

Houston in the gold sequined floor-length gown that she wore for a photo shoot for her 2009 comeback effort, “I Look to You” is on display at the New York City location of the museum.

Houston’s sister-in-law/manager, Pat Houston believes that Madame Tussauds recognition of the late star a nearly year to her death is a fitting tribute to her fans.

“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.”
