Whitney Houston’s fans get a chance to say goodbye online
The singer’s funeral will be livestreamed.
Despite earlier announcements that Whitney Houston’s funeral would be closed to the public, there’s now one way fans can attend: via the Internet.
Houston’s funeral will be held at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey, which the singer attended as a child.
New Hope only seats about 1,500 people, and the decision to allow so few people to attend drew some criticism from fans in the area. Newark’s police directorhas told the media that over 100 police officers, including S.W.A.T. teams, will be on hand for security.
“Wow, very gracious of the family to allow that and let us be a part of the service,” LoverForLife04 wrote on the Whitney Houston fan forum Classic Whitney.
