Fallen Star: Whitney Houston [Funeral Update]

I still can't believe she is gone. While I was just trying to get through this week with work and fashion week, Whitney Houston stayed on my mind. An iconic and legendary singer and actress is gone...and way too soon.  The Whitney Houston Home Going Funeral will be taking place on Saturday, February 18th at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey. Celebs such as Ray J and Kevin Costner have already been spotted at the airports flying in for the service. Other celebs who will be in attendance are Alicia Keys, Tyler Perry, Rickey Minor, CeCe Winans (Bobbi Kristina's godmother), and gospel singers Kim Burrell and Donnie McClurkinAretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder are slated to perform, while Houston's longtime producer and mentor, Clive Davis, will be a speaker. It goes without saying that Dionne Warwick (cousin), Bobby Brown (ex-husband), and Bobbi Kristina (daughter) will be there as well. BET and Centric will be covering LIVE from the service, so check your cable provider (you can get a complete list here: BET and Centric to cover and other channels that will be covering you can find at The Hollywood Reporter).

I say, instead of focusing on Whitney's bad vices, let's always remember her talent. No one has a voice like hers and no one can do a Whitney song justice other than Whitney.
