Whitney Houston's Private Funeral: New Details Revealed

| Filed under: R.I.P.Whitney Houston

new details on whitney houston funeral

As we said before, we definitely think it was a smart move not having a public memorial. Whitney's family deserves the opportunity to say goodbye to her in private.

Yesterday, we learned that Whitney Houston's funeral will be an invitation-only service, which will take place on Saturday at the Hope Baptist Church (where Whitney started her singing career) in Newark, NJ.

Now, we've learned some new details about the the funeral arrangements, which are as follows:

- Whitney's mother Cissy Houston is taking charge of the funeral arrangements
- Faith will be a major focus of the ceremony
- Funeral home being used also handled Whitney's father John Russell Houston's burial arrangements in 2003

We're just glad to hear that things seem to be moving forward smoothly at this point. Hopefully we don't hear about any more drama with regards to these funeral arrangements.

    Because weddings and funerals bring on all different types of emotions there is usually some sort of drama. It's just natural human instincts. It has to be hard for Whitney's family to not want Bobbie Brown there but he is in fact Bobbi Kristina's daddy and she may want her daddy by her side at a time like this. Whitney was so blessed with her talent and it's sad that she eventually didn't appreciate her life. I guess when you only live for the drugs that is the only thing that matters. Seems that way anyways.
