Madame Tussauds unveiled four wax figures of Whitney Houston encompassing four decades of the star’s career. Needless to say the wax figures are extremely realistic. So much so that Whitney's mother, Cissy Houston, found it too difficult to take photos next to her likeness!
"I'm sorry, I don't want to take a picture with it. I love it, don't get misconstrued on why I didn't, but I don't want to. I love it and I'm proud of her," she said.
The singer's mother Cissy, her brothers and former manager were at the museum for the unveiling ceremony.
The figures are a first for Madame Tussauds - it has never before made, and unilaterally released, the likenesses of one personality's life.
With the one-year anniversary of Houston's death approaching, the star's former manager, Pat Houston says the family is taking it one day at a time.
