The only time star power can be gathered together like this is for an awards show or a funeral. We're so sorry to say its the latter, but we're pleased so many people planning on making the trip to say goodbye to a beloved talent.
The number of A-list stars expected to be at Whitney Houston's funeral tomorrow has grown to almost a dozen recognizable stars. Besides the previously announce attendees like Oprah and Kevin Costner, friends and admirers such as Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Elton John, Bill Cosby, and David Bowie are all expected to attend the service at Newark, New Jersey’s New Hope Baptist Church.
Of the service, New Hope church Pastor Joe A. Carter told the New Jersey Star-Ledger:
"It’s going to be a ceremony that reflects her life. A celebration of Whitney’s life, with the participation of many people who are very important in Whitney’s life."
And who better to celebrate her life than those who loved and knew her best.
It will be a somber occasion, but hopefully one that brings a lot of people closer to peace with her passing.
