Whitney Houston will be laid to rest today. In a star studded funeral, the legendary singer will climb the stairway to heaven. Friends and family will celebrate her life and legacy, saying goodbye to one of the greatest singers of all time.
On Saturday, the “Home Going” ceremony for Whitney is scheduled at 9am PST and 12pm EST, the funeral will be streamed live via TMZ. Allowing fans to say goodbye as well to our Leo girl.
Unfortunately, a wacko right wing Christian group plans to picket Whitney’s funeral and have gone on a Twitter tirade. The Christian Post is reporting that members of the Christian group, known for its strong anti-gay stance, are planning to stage a protest at the pop diva’s private memorial, set for this weekend in her hometown of Newark, N.J. The group has even released a parody of Houston’s signature song, titled “God Will Always Hate You, Whitney” (sung to the tune of “I Will Always Love You”). WTF?
Several celebrities are expected to attend Whitney’s funeral including: Aretha Franklin, Kevin Costner, Tyler Perry, Alicia Keys, Clive Davis, and her ex husband Bobby Brown. So sad, Astrochicks thoughts and prayers go out to her baby girl, Bobbi Kristina. RIP Whitney Houston.
