Homegoing for Whitney Houston

The Homegoing service for Whitney Houston will be noon at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey. Pastor Marvin Winans will deliver the eulogy. Stevie Wonder and many others will perform at the service.

As the world says their final goodbyes to the singer, many news outlets will stream live including BET and MSNBC. Atlanta radio KISS 104.1FM will also have a live stream. It's hard to believe that a week has gone by since the breaking news of Whitney Houston's death hit the radio airwaves and television news media began to cover the story.

All this past week, there has been huge coverage on her life with music and interviews with loved ones and fans across the world. The Homegoing service is a term African-Americans have used for the funeral of family and friends. While everyone mourns the loss, their life is also remembered in joyous song and words.

We can truly say that Whitney Houston has left us with memorable music and lyrics that touched our lives. As the angels await her arrival in heaven, her music truly was the greatest love of all.
