If Tupac can do it, then so can Amy Winehouse. Eccentric billionaire Alki David said he's planning to bring back the soulful singer from the dead using a hologram in order to take "her" on a world tour. "With an orchestra and her hologram, she can take to the stage and fans can see her perform her legendary hits," David told the Sun newspaper.
Winehouse's father Mitch is apparently on board, too. "The most important thing to Amy was the music and I'm sure a lot of people would like to hear her sing again," he previously told the newspaper. Whether it's a "book, an album or a hologram" he said supports efforts to keep Winehouse's memory alive.
The "Rehab" singer died of a drug overdose in 2011 at her London flat. She was 27 years old.- - Jordan Valinsky
