Whitney Houston?s Golden Hearse Arrives At New Jersey Funeral Home
Whitney Houston?s body is now in New Jersey, where her funeral will be held on Saturday. A plane owned by actor-producer Tyler Perry landed at an airport in Teterboro, New Jersey, where security was tight. A gold hearse left the airport and arrived just before midnight at the Whigham funeral home in Newark, the city where Houston was born. A crowd of about 50 fans had gathered outside. A few opportunists were selling "In Memory of Whitney Houston" T-shirts for $10 each in the parking lot. Whitney?s mother, Cissy, was also outside the funeral home, awaiting her daughter?s body. The family was initially divided over where to bury Whitney. Cissy and cousin Dionne Warwick wanted the burial to take place in Atlanta -- but were convinced by the rest of the family to bury her in Newark. Whitney funeral service will be held Saturday in the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, the church where she first showcased her singing talents as a child.
