Whitney Houston Funeral Televised

Whitney Houston Funeral Televised, As preparations continue for what’s expected to be a star-studded funeral for Whitney Houston, New Jersey police have urged fans to stay away from the private service.
On Thursday, Newark police said that six square blocks around the New Hope Baptist Church, where Houston began singing as a child, would be cordoned off on Saturday and that fans would not be allowed in.
Newark police director Samuel DeMaio advised fans to stay home to watch the funeral, which will be broadcast on TV and streamed online. He also said there would be no procession from Newark’s Whigham Funeral Home, where Houston’s body is resting, to the church.
However, as of Friday morning, fans and media had already gathered outside the church.
In New Jersey, devotees have left flowers, photos, messages and other tribute items to the singer at the church, the funeral home and the school renamed for Houston. Fans have appealed for a public memorial where they can also unite to grieve the singer.
The singer’s final resting place will be next to her father, John Russell Houston Jr., at the Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, N.J. following Saturday’s funeral, a source close to the family told The Associated Press.
