Newark - The hearse carrying Whitney Houston's casket has arrived at the New Jersey church where her funeral is being held.

About 1 500 people were invited to the service on Saturday at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark. Houston sung in the church choir there as a child.

Houston died on February 11 in California, the day before the Grammy awards. She was 48.

A gospel choir was rehearsing in the church hours before the service, and roses and lilies surround the pulpit.

*Channel24 will host the live streaming of Whitney Houston's funeral on Saturday at 19:00.
