Houston Remembered in Song, Speeches

In the final hour of Whitney Houston’s emotional funeral service, Patricia Houston, Whitney’s sister-in-law and manager, and Rev. Marvin Winans gave celebratory and touching eulogies. R. Kelly, joined by a choir, sang “I Look to You,” a song he wrote specifically for Houston. He was followed by gospel singer Cece Winans, who sang a soulful rendition of “Don’t Cry for Me.” At the end of the service, the world said goodbye to Whitney to the tune of “I Will Always Love You” as her casket was carried out of the church.
