New York - Pop legend Whitney Houston is to be buried Sunday at a family plot in New Jersey a day after a private funeral, ABC News reported, citing law enforcement sources.

ABC said the star would be laid to rest at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield next to her father, John Russell Houston, who died in 2003.

The television network said law enforcement officials were making arrangements for street closings

The funeral service, in New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey, where Houston sang as a child, is by invitation only and fans have been respectfully asked to stay away for fear of crowds disrupting the event.

Houston's death in Los Angeles on the eve of the Grammy Awards last weekend at the age of 48 shocked the world, drawing an outpouring of grief from fans and contemporaries.
