Toby Canham

To commemorate the singer's passing, Fuse will spend all of Saturday airing Whitney Houston: A Tribute, 24 hours of Whitney videos and retrospectives. We will break in at noon for a live broadcast of the funeral services. Additional coverage before and after the ceremony will also stream live on the Fuse YouTube channel.  

The funeral ceremony begins Saturday at noon in the New Hope Baptist Church. Pastor Marvin L. Winans—who married the late singer to Bobby Brown in 1992—will give the eulogy.

Stevie Wonder and Whitney’s godmother Aretha Franklin will sing at the church and Kevin Costner will speak at the ceremony. Costner, who co-starred with Houston in The Bodyguard, was the one who suggested Whitney cover Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You” for the film's soundtrack.
