Whitney’s funeral will be held on Feb. 18 at New Hope Baptist Church and the private service won’t have a dry eye in the church after the R&B legend performs.

Whitney Houston‘s mentor Clive Davis has personally asked the late singer’s godmother Aretha Franklin to sing at her funeral, according to Entertainment Tonight.

A source from Whitney’s camp told ET that when the 69-year-old singer was asked to sing she said, “How could I say no?”

The invitation-only funeral will be held this Saturday at noon and although her ex-husband Bobby Brown was rumored to be banned, he is expected to attend.
