Whitney Houston's Private Funeral to Be Broadcast Live
Though Whitney Houston's funeral will be open to "invite-only" guests, fans will be able to follow the service. A publicist for the late singer has announced that The Associated Press will be the pool camera for the ceremony, which is going to take place this Saturday, February 18 at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey.
The funeral for the "Where Do Broken Hearts Go" songstress is expected to be made available both online and on television via satellite. The AP will stream the service on their website. There is still no word, however, on which network which will broadcast the ceremony.
As of late, it's reported that Aretha Franklin will do a tribute performance for her late goddaughter Houston at the service. Rev. Marvin Winans, who officiated Houston's wedding to Bobby Brown, is expected to deliver an eulogy.
Brown himself is reportedly not invited to the funeral, and he is left "extremely disappointed." Meanwhile, some celebrities to show up at the ceremony are Chaka Khan, Bebe & CeCe Winans, Diane Warren, Darlene Love, L.A. Reid, Ray J and Brandy.
