Whitney Houston's New Wax Figures Are Kind of Incredible

Whitney Houston's music has already earned a place in the pop culture hall of fame, and now the singer is being immortalized in another way.

Madame Tussauds is memorializing the Houston, who died last year, with four separate wax figures. This marks the first time in 200 years that the museum has simultaneously created so many figures of the same person.

"We were extremely honored when Madame Tussauds approached us about doing four figures of Whitney from different points in her 30-year career," Houston's manager and sister-in-law Pat Houston said in a statement on behalf of the Houston family. "This is something we are excited to do for the fans."

The four wax figures of Whitney were all created at the Tussauds studio in London, but will be displayed in different cities. Washington D.C. will get the figure of Houston performing the national anthem at the 1991 Super Bowl; Las Vegas will display Houston from her 1988 music video for "I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)"; Los Angeles will get Whitney's figure from her 1992 movie The Bodyguard; and New York will honor the star with a wax figure modeled off a 2009 photo shoot.

The four Whitney Houston wax figures will be unveiled in New York City this Thursday, almost a year after the singer passed away.
