She Went From Performing On A Small Stage In NJ To Global Stages Around The World: Whitney Houston’s Funeral Invitation Revealed

She went from performing on a small stage in NJ to global stages around the world. Last week, we lost one of the greatest vocalists in the history of music. Whitney Houston’s “home going” service will be held at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark where Whitney use to sing as a child. The general public will be able to watch a live stream of the services beginning at 11:30AM ET/8:30AM PT on BET News and CENTRIC. Celebrities such as Aretha Franklin, Clive Davis, Alicia Keys, Ray J, Brandy, Dionne Warwick, Kim Burrell, Cece Winans, Stevie Wonder, Donnie McClurkin, Rickey Minor, Tyler Perry, and Kevin Costner will attend the private, invitation-only service, while the The Rev. Marvin Winans will preside over the funeral.

I am sending my deepest condolences out to the entire Houston/Brown family. I am also praying for Bobbi Kristina, heavenly father, please watch over her.

BREAKING NEWS: Whitney Houston’s Daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown Rushed To The Hospital

Last night Saturday (February 11), I reported that singer Whitney Houston died at the Beverly Hilton hotel. The exact cause of her death is still unknown. However, it is being reported that NO illegal drugs have been found in the hotel room where Houston died and it’s possible the singer drowned in the bathtub. I just received an update and it is being reported that Houston was found in the bathtub of a Beverly Hills hotel yesterday, with her face underwater, people close to Whitney tell TMZ. The autopsy on the body of Whitney Houston will be performed today, but we’re told any results will be deferred pending a toxicology report. Now it is being reported that Houston’s beautiful daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, was just rushed to Cedears-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. Below is how TMZ is reporting the story:

Whitney Houston‘s 18-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was just rushed to Cedears-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles … TMZ has learned.

According to our sources … Bobbi was taken out of the Beverly Hilton, where Whitney died yesterday, on a stretcher.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ police and fire responded to a call for a medical emergency, but would not confirm who was transported.

As TMZ first reported, Bobbi Kristina got into an angry shouting match last night with police officers outside the hotel room where her mother was found dead

Bobbi Christina is Whitney’s only child from husband Bobby Brown. Houston and Brown were married in 1992 and divorced in 2007.

Story developing …

UPDATE 1: (Reporting from TMZ.com)

With the death of ex-wife Whitney Houston, and his daughter Bobbi Kristina in the hospital, sources close to Bobby Brown tell TMZ he is on his way to Los Angeles be with his daughter … and skipping a concert to do so.

According to our sources, Bobbi Kristina has not been alone since her mother passed — she’s had Bobby’s family by her side the entire time.

New Edition has a concert tonight in Nashville, but we’re told Bobby will skip the show so he can get to Los Angeles to be with Bobbi Kristina. Brown was spotted at the airport in Nashville with an entourage of people by his side (see photo above).

As TMZ first reported, Bobbi Kristina has been in the hospital twice since Whitney passed away.

The Greatest Love: Whitney Houston Was Found In The Bathtub Of A Beverly Hills Hotel Yesterday

Last night Saturday (February 11), I reported that singer Whitney Houston died at the Beverly Hilton hotel. The exact cause of her death is still unknown. However, it is being reported that NO illegal drugs have been found in the hotel room where Houston died and it’s possible the singer drowned in the bathtub. I just received an update and it is being reported that Houston was found in the bathtub of a Beverly Hills hotel yesterday, with her face underwater, people close to Whitney tell TMZ. Below is how TMZ is reporting the story:

Whitney Houston was found in the bathtub of a Beverly Hills hotel yesterday … with her face underwater … people close to Whitney tell TMZ.

According to our sources, her stylist, hairdresser and two bodyguards were among the people in the room at the time. We’re told they became worried about Whitney because she had been in the bathroom for over an hour and it was time to start getting ready for the Clive Davis party.

Our sources say they began to knock on the door and there was no answer. We’re told the hairdresser, who is female, went in to check on Whitney. She immediately screamed and, according to our sources, one of the bodyguards came running in and pulled her out of the tub.

We’re told Whitney’s face was below the water and her legs were up … like she had slid down the back of the tub.

According to our sources, her body was very cold and the bodyguard attempted CPR. That’s when hotel security was called.

Paramedics arrived shortly thereafter, but Whitney was pronounced dead at 3:55 PM.

We Will Always Love Whitney Houston: No Illegal Drugs Have Been Found In The Hotel; Possible Drowning

Last night Saturday (February 11), I reported that singer Whitney Houston died at the Beverly Hilton hotel. The exact cause of her death is still unknown. However, it is being reported that NO illegal drugs have been found in the hotel room where Houston died and it’s possible the singer drowned in the bathtub. Below is how TMZ is reporting the story:

No illegal drugs have been found in the hotel room where Whitney Houston died — at least not yet — but prescription drugs were present, and it’s possible the singer drowned in the bathtub … TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us … when EMTs arrived Whitney’s body was already removed from the bathtub so it will take an autopsy to determine if she OD’d, drowned or died from some other cause.

Informed sources tell us … Beverly Hills cops — who were still searching the room at the time this story was posted — found various pill bottles. There was no evidence that Whitney was drinking alcohol in the room.

Whitney’s body was just removed from the room on a gurney.  It will go to the morgue for an autopsy to determine cause of death.
