Aretha And Stevie Wonder To Sing At Whitney Funeral

Stevie Wonder has joined Aretha Franklin as one of the artists to perform at Whitney Houston's private funeral in New Jersey tomorrow.

As previously reported, Whitney Houston's former co-star Kevin Costner has been invited as well as Oprah Winfrey and despite rumours that her ex-husband Bobby Brown was banned from the service, he has now received an invitation.

Houston's publicist has confirmed that Clive Davis, who was recently slammed for continuing with his pre-Grammy party just hours after the 'I Will Always Love You' singer's death, will be speaking at the funeral tomorrow.

The eulogy will be given by gospel singer and Whitney's friend Marvin Winans, at her childhood church.

Other people that are expected to attend is Whitney's cousin Dionne Warwick, Cece Winans, Alicia Keys, Tyler Perry and more. Aretha Franklin is actually a close family friend and even Whitney's god-daughter, with the singer calling her 'Aunty Ree'.

Organisers are already prepping the New Hope Baptist Church and it looks as though music is set to be a key part of the ceremony, with speakers and drums being put in the church.

According to reports, Newark police will be shutting down the area for six square blocks around the church so those without invitations will be kept away.

The AP will be streaming the service live tomorrow at http://livestream.com/aplive.
