NEW YORK (AP) -- A hologram of the late, great Whitney Houston will arrive next year.

Hologram USA and Houston's estate announced Friday that the hologram will stream live on FilmOn.com.

Houston's sister-in-law and president of her estate said in a statement that the hologram is "a great opportunity for her fans to see a reinvention of one the most celebrated female artists in history and to continue a legacy of performances that will not be forgotten in years to come."

Houston died in 2012 at age 48.

FilmOn is a free online and live TV app. Alki David, who is the CEO of Hologram USA, also founded FilmOn.

Hologram USA announced earlier this week that a Billie Holiday hologram will debut later this year at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York.
