M. J. Edwards Funeral Home and Memorial Keepsakes have released an obituary honoring the life of our favorite “Jersey Girl,” Whitney Houston.
Services for Houston, who died Saturday, February 11, 2012, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA the night before the Grammy Awards, will be held at New Hope Baptist Church and streamed online. She sang at the church as a child. Her eulogy will be given by gospel singer Marvin Winans. Her god-mother Aretha Franklin will also pay tribute. Clive Davis and Kevin Costner will also speak at the funeral.
[Editor’s Note: In the original version of this article M.J. Edwards Funeral Home was identified as the funeral home entrusted with the final arrangements for Whitney Houston. The correct funeral home is Whigham Funeral Home in Newark, New Jersey. We apologize for the error.]
