Stars Mourn and Remember Whitney Houston at Funeral Service

Aug 9,1963 -Feb 11,2012


    Stars, family and friends mourned Whitney Houston in a spirited funeral service at her hometown church on Saturday, a week after the sudden death of the singer whose spectacular voice made her one of the biggest pop stars of her era.
     A choir had guests swaying to gospel music in the crowded New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, where Houston first honed her wide vocal range as a young choir singer with her mother Cissy Houston, a backup singer for Aretha Franklin.
   "Whitney returns home today to the place where it all began," said actor Kevin Costner, who starred opposite Houston in the 1992 hit film, "The Bodyguard." He urged those around the world to "dry our tears, suspend our sorrow and perhaps our anger  just long enough, just long enough to remember the sweet miracle of Whitney."
 Clive davis ,tyler perry, bebe winans also gave touching speech about whitney.
   Stars who performed at the service include Alicia keys, Stevie wonder,R.Kelly,Kim burell,and bebe winans.
     Whitney will be buried sunday morning next to her father  at fairview cemetary in westfield new jersey.
