Fans who are mourning the sudden passing of Whitney Houston will soon get to see the singer be put to rest at her funeral, which is being broadcasted online.
Whitney Houston‘s funeral will be streaming on Livestream and on TV for fans around the world. The last time that a funeral service was streamed and televised was in 2009 for Michael Jackson.
The ceremony will be held at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, NJ, where the singer grew up. Gospel singer and pastor Marvin Winans, who is a long-time friend of the Houston family, will be delivering the eulogy, CNN reports. The service will be in a smaller and more cherished setting for family and friends of the ill-fated star. Publicists confirmed that of the 1,500 people attending the service, nearly a dozen celebrities will be sitting in the sought-after “invitation-only” seats.
The funeral service will be broadcast this Saturday, Feb. 18th at noon.
