Tupac, Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley and now Ronnie James Dio.

The famous Black Sabbath singer is being resurrected as a hologram this year, thanks to his widow Wendy. "I just wanted to keep his memory and his music alive," she tells Tom Power. 

As Wendy continues to work with a company (in fact, the company behind films like Avatar and The Jungle Book) on Ronnie's hologram, she speaks on the process of creating this and what it was like to see the hologram come to life onstage. 

"It was very emotional," she says. "It was like he was back again."
