The legacy of arguably one of the greatest singers to ever grace a microphone has an NFT (non-fungible token) to add to her historic career. Once word got out about the collection, the 300 NFTs available sold out within a few seconds.
OneOf created an NFT collection built around a never-before-heard, unreleased song demo that Houston recorded when she was just a 17-year-old up-and-coming artist. The collection is of various rare archival materials, as well as recently produced art. The set is a collaboration with one of today’s most compelling visual artists, Diana Sinclair, who has been hailed as a 17-year-old crypto phenomenon. She has re-imagined and re-invigorated these photographs for contemporary audiences.
The Whitney Houston collection not only celebrates and acknowledges her legacy, but it is being used as inspiration for today’s young talent and the promising future of the world of music, art, and technology.
