MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A funeral service was held at New Hope Baptist Church in New Jersey on Saturday to honor the life of Whitney Houston, the famous singer who died last Saturday.

Houston was found dead in a hotel bathroom the night before the Grammy Awards.

Houston will always be known for her talents in front of the microphone, but also struggled with drug addiction relating to her marriage to Bobby Brown.

The guest list at the funeral included stars such as Elton John, Oprah Winfrey, Bill Cosby, Mariah Carey, Denzel Washington, Jay-Z, Beyonce and Brandy. Stevie Wonder sang a solo as did Jennifer Hudson.

Aretha Franklin was also scheduled to make an appearance, but was a late cancellation.

      Apparently you care enough to crawl out of your slime pit and post your nastiness for the world to see.

    Bro its our “Fallen Sister”. You should show some respect. My understanding is that they will do tests on her to try to figure out how she lasted this long. Plus the Mexican Cartell are in a panic now! Their crack demand just went down by 40%.

      Thank you for confirming how UGLY Minnesota really is. I’m amazed you took time out from swilling your fifth six pack to stumble over to the computer.

    She was a selfish crack head who didn’t spend time with her child and now left a child to be cared for by more media/hollywood weirdos. Pray for her daughter that she does not end up in hell with her Whitney. @booboo you seem so angry…can’t find a man to touch you huh???

    Dear Whitney Houston, Thank you for the music. It seems that the most tortured souls have the greatest talent, just ask Van Gogh. And it seems that you were just that. You loved Jesus, perhaps not yourself, but He never forgot you and now you get to sing for Him. Your Bible was called “raggity” by your bodyguard because you always had it with you. It was well used.

    Nobody is perfect. And that is exactly how it’s supposed to be. R.I.P.

    Gov. Chris Christe even ordered the flags flown at half staff. Just guessing she must have been in some war that the general public did not know about.
    What the He** . Why did he do this for a has been and a drug addict? She should have learned from what happened to her buddy MJ. stupid is stupid does.

  6. Tim Baryard says:

    Looks like Whitney Houston is cool again now that she’s just made the transition from mainstream to the underground.

    Care and love for those that fall to the pills, chem’s and booze. The Herb is the Tree of Life ! JAH KNOW! The healing of the nations! End the drug war! Ron Paul-common sense-love-freedom———–RIP Whitney. It will be beautiful to hear you sing again when I die.

    We all have a day, no one knows the day nor the hour! Many of you on this site are so disrepectful! The main people talking are perverts, alcholics and closet gays! You hide behind the post because you are cowards! May Whitney rest in peace!

    I’m still upset and it been a week already….the woman owed me money Dammit! Where be dat Bobby B.?!

    You actually make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I to find this matter to be actually one thing that I think I would by no means understand. It sort of feels too complicated and very huge for me. I am taking a look forward in your next post, I’ll attempt to get the hang of it!
