Madame Tussauds has unveiled 4 different waxworks of late Whitney Houston, which is the most the museum has created of one person in its 200-year-old history.
The waxworks of the star, who died a year ago on the eve of the Grammy Awards last year, were created in London but they will be displayed at museums in separate cities, according to insiders, reported Daily Mail.
The singer's former manager and sister-in-law Pat Houston was on hand to unveil the collection with her husband and Whitney's brother, Gary.
"We were extremely honoured 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," Pat said.
The four statues represent iconic moments in the singer's life.
Houston performing the national anthem at the 1991 Super Bowl is going to Washington DC's Tussauds and Hollywood will get her in her 1992 movie "The Bodyguard".
Las Vegas will display the young Houston as seen in her 1988 video for 'I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)' and New York will exhibit a more recent likeness of the singer, from a 2009 photo shoot for her final studio album.
"She was a true and rare talent, and we are exceedingly proud to be adding her wax likeness to our attractions in the United States," said Rosemary Preta, director of marketing, Midway USA, Merlin Entertainment Group.
Houston was found unconscious in Suite 434 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on February 11, and later pronounced dead. The cause of death was not immediately known and it was later ruled by the coroner to have been an 'accidental drowning
