The music industry it also wants its niche within the NFTs. We have already seen it a few times with artists such as Eminem or The Weekend. The NFTs are already on everyone’s lips, and this edition of Miami Art Week, it seems that nothing else has been talked about. The marketplace musical OneOf took advantage of the event to launch a series of unpublished products from the career of Whitney Houston, the artist known as The Voice who left us almost ten years ago.
There have been several NFTs that have been traded on music, but those that have had a leading role have been those related to the American artist. Everything turned upside down when OneOf presented a NFT absolutely unique and unpublished. A song by the artist totally unknown until now. Specifically, this topic, which never saw the light of day, is a demo that Whitney Houston recorded when she was just 17 years old.
The auction of the model was completed on the night of December 14th, where a buyer came to offer the large sum of $ 999,999. The rest of the products would end up selling as well, collecting a total of $ 1.1 million in sales. The winner of the auction will have access to the song, never heard before. In addition, the demo is mounted together with a video of also unpublished illustrations by the artist Diana Sinclair, where exclusive photographs of the singer’s life are also shown.

Houston Foundation, which is dedicated to the education and training of young people to prepare them for the future. This has been made known by Pat Houston, who was the artist’s manager and sister-in-law, who also feels very satisfied that the legate of whitney serve to expand the technology of the current era.
