NEW YORK (AP) – Fans worldwide who want to bid Whitney Houston farewell will be able to watch her private funeral on the Internet.
Her publicist, Kristen Foster, announced that The Associated Press will be the pool camera for the Saturday ceremony in Newark, New Jersey, and the AP will stream the service on livestream.com/aplive. It also will be available to broadcasters via satellite.
Houston died in Beverly Hills, California, on Saturday at the age of 48. Her body was flown back to her native New Jersey on Monday.
Some fans were disappointed when they learned that the funeral was private and no public memorial was planned.
Houston was born in Newark. The service will be at New Hope Baptist Church, where she sang as a child.
