It’s been one year since Whitney Houston passed away. On the anniversary of her death, Madame Tussauds remembers the late legend by immortalizing her in wax. Houston’s family including brothers Gary and Michael, sister-in-law/manager Pat, and mother Cissy Houston were on hand to unveil four wax figures at Madame Tussauds in New York City on Thursday.
“We were extremely honored when Madame Tussauds approached us about doing four figures of Whitney from different points in her 30-year career,” Pat Houston told People. “This is something we are excited to do for the fans.”
Four iconic images of the diva were showcased including one of a young Whitney from 1988′s “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)” video, her performance of the National Anthem at the 1991 Super Bowl, her “Queen of the Night” outfit from The Bodyguard, and most recently from a photo shoot for her 2009 album I Look to You.
The unveiling marks the first time in 200 years that the museum has simultaneously created this many figures of the same subject. While they were made in London, they will be displayed across the country in different cities including Washington, D.C., Hollywood, Las Vegas, and New York.
