Watch WHITNEY HOUSTON FUNERAL LIVE ON THE INTERNET
Singer Whitney Houston’s millions of fans worldwide will be able to share in her homecoming service on Saturday (Sunday in Manila) as they watch her private funeral on the Internet.
This will provide a much-needed connection for fans who have lacked a formal place to eulogize Houston, one of the world’s best-selling artists who died in Beverly Hills, California, on Saturday at the age of 48.
You could also gather and place flowers outside the Newark, New Jersey, church where the funeral will be held by invitation-only at the request of Houston’s family, who wish to maintain some privacy. Other fans had stopped by the funeral home.
But many have longed to share more fully in commemorating the superstar’s life, and have shown their grief in one of the few ways available to them—by buying her music.
Houston’s funeral will be at New Hope Baptist Church, where she sang as a child. Her eulogy will be given by gospel singer Marvin Winans, a Grammy Award winner and longtime family friend. Afterward, Houston will be buried in Fair View Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey, according to her death certificate. Her father, John Russell Houston Jr., was buried there in 2003.
