Whitney Houston‘s 4 hour homegoing service was held Saturday, February 18, 2012 and attended by an invitation-only crowd that was limited to family and friends.
While New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, NJ was filled with friends, family and celebrities, Houston’s funeral services were watched around the world: as it was streamed online live and shown on a number of television networks.
Houston’s funeral is slated to begin at 9 a.m. Pacific at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, N.J. — the late pop titan’s childhood church.
Houston’s ex-husband, Bobby Brown was asked to leave just minutes into the services (click HERE for details) but among those attending were Houston’s “Bodyguard” co-star Kevin Costner, cousin Dionne Warwick, Tyler Perry, Ray J, Brandy, Alicia Keys, R. Kelly, BeBe and CeCe Winans, and of course her daughter Bobbi Kristina and mother Cissy Houston.
