Whitney Houston's Funeral To Be Live Streamed

Some relief for fans of Whitney Houston: they'll be able to watch the singer's funeral service this weekend.

Originally, the service was going to be private, but the Grammy winner's family has decided to stream the service live over the Internet.

That makes many fans thankful that they won't be excluded from the singer's final sendoff.

"She gave a lot to the people, so to watch it live is a privilege," fan Elizabeth Ekpn said.

"I think it's a very good way for the public to see it," Tracey Callaway concurred.

Officials from the New Hope Baptist Church are hammering out the arrangements with the Newark Police Department for Saturday's service, discussing how to handle both the crowds and the dozens of VIPs expected to attend.

The church can seat about 1,500 people; among the invitees, Houston's godmother Aretha Franklin, who might sing.

The superstar was found dead in her Beverly Hills Hotel room on Saturday. Investigators have subpoenaed records from Houston's doctors and pharmacies to figure out whether prescription drugs found in the hotel room contributed to her death.

Bur right now, fans are choosing not to focus on her death, but rather, celebrate her life.

    Whitney Houston confessed to Diane Sawyer that she was the devil. She also stated in that interview that she was a child of God. That’s very confusing. You have to be one or the other. www.Hear-The-Truth.com

    This is a great idea. Whitneys fans can attend the funeral and there is no need to worry about DUIs after the funeral.
