  Where to catch Whitney's funeral
TVSA can confirm that Whitney Houston's funeral will air live on CNN and Sky News on Saturday (18 February) at 18h00 (CAT).

The funeral takes place at the New Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey - where Whitney grew up - and is by invitation only.

According to CNN, 1500 guests are expected with about a dozen celebrities among them including Kevin Costner who'll be speaking; and Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin who'll be performing.

Gospel singer, family friend and pastor Marvin Winans will be leading the eulogy.

The Associated Press are the only news agency who are being allowed video access to proceedings so they'll be broadcasting the service online, and to various news channels round the world.

International news networks will have cameras outside the church to capture their own footage to feature round the service.

The live online feed will be available on Livestream.

Touching sermon indeed. We will remember her for who she really was now. Let nothing separate you from the love of God! even though she was troubled its evident that she still hanged on to Her Father in Heaven.  Somehow I wonder if meeting Bobby was just a wrong turn/obstruction to her purpose-

She allowed to be drifted away-and when she did-the good person she was-it seemed she hoped she could change him for the better!

NOTE!! Your enviroment/people in your sphere can influence you for the Good/Bad.

if you see that it too heavy for you to positively influence RUN!! for you will be the one dragged to the other side

It was a seriously moving ceremony for real!

I loved CNN's commentory that Whitney took the whole world to church! That was so profound! Then the pastor sermon about PRIORITISING! Man oh man! too moving!

The singing was electrifying too. So, regardless of what she did that was negative, her last rememberance ended on a POSITIVE note!
