Whitney Houston Funeral Time

Whitney Houston’s star-studded funeral service will be broadcast over the Internet tomorrow at 12 p.m. EST

Much like all of her productions during her lifetime, Whitney Houston‘s funeral service Feb. 18 will be one for the ages. Held at the New Hope Baptist Church in Westfield, New Jersey, the celebration of Whitney’s life will be attended by some of the biggest A-listers from Hollywood.

Alicia KeysClive DavisAretha FranklinTyler PerryDionne WarwickStevie WonderKim BurrellRickey MinorDonnie McClurkinMarvin Winans and Cece Winans, L.A. Reid, Brandy and Ray J are all expected to make appearances at the invite-only service.

Stevie and Aretha will sing and Whitney’s record producer, Clive Davis, will also speak to the attendees.

“I would advise the public that there really is going to be nothing to see here at the church. The best thing to do would be to stay home and watch the service on television,” the police chief, Samuel DeMaio advised.

Following her service, Whitney — who passed away Feb. 11 inside her Beverly Hills hotel room — will be laid to rest at Fairview Cemetery.

In addition to viewing the funeral online or on your TV at noon, please join in HollywoodLife.com‘s life chat.

My Idol “Whitney”…I am deeply saddened to hear the news of your death. You will be greatly missed. You are now in a better place, doing what you do best “singing”..in the city of golds “Heaven”. Mahalo and Aloha, may you rest in peace my forever “American Idol Hero”…there’s no one like you.

Experts should not keep stating that Bobbi Kristina will follow in the foot steps of her mother cause that’s not true going through the things she went through at such a young age with two unhealthy parents addicted to drugs watching them struggle is more of the reason she would choose her soberity and being so judgemental toured this young women will not help toured her recovery she just lost her mother back off experts

Whitney why did you have to live so soon. I guess we will never now, but you and the father above. We wish you well whitney,you did you work here on earth. You will be miss each and every day. Bobbie kristine your just remember that you still have a mother here on earth and that is your grandmother i’m quite sure your grandmother will be by your side every step of the way. So hang in their baby girl. Bobby Brown do the right thing and don’t try drain your daughter out of her money. Just be her father and guide her the right way for the love of your wife whitney. I love you Bobby Brown!! From yvette k. g.
