Fans of Whitney Houston will have on last chance to see their beloved idol live on television for the last time as her funeral will we broadcasted live on television and via web streaming. According to Carolyn Whigham, who owns the Newark funeral home where Houston will have said, “Her publicist has chosen one person who will be allowed into the sanctuary and who will be streaming (video) to you all,”
Saturday’s funeral for legendary pop singer Whitney Houston who as sold more than 170 million records is expected to be made available for television and web streaming from the New Jersey church where she grew up, Houston’s publicist said Wednesday.
Jumbo screens will be set up outside the New Hope Baptist Church where the service is to be held in a small and intimate setting where dozens of celebrities and personalities will be attending to pay their final respects to the singer. The church was special to the Houstons because it was there that Houston honed her vocal skills and her mother Cissy served as music director there for decades.

Whitney was found unconscious in her bathtub on Saturday afternoon at the Beverly Hilton hotel while preparing to attend a pre-Grammy party. Throughout her career, she was publicly known for substance abuse and her tumultuous relationship with ex husband Bobbi Brown.
Although the family is not commenting on Houston’s burial location, her death certificate filed Wednesday in Los Angeles lists it as Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey. The funeral date has yet to be made public but wherever Whitney is now, we pray that there will be love.
