Multiple outlets report that music mogul and Houston mentor Clive Davis personally asked the soul legend (Houston’s godmother) to sing.
Gossip Cop has reached out for confirmation.
The private service is scheduled for Saturday afternoon at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey.
It’s the same church where Houston sang while growing up.
Other expected guests include Chaka Khan, Rev. Jesse Jackson, L.A. Reid, Ray J and Brandy.
Marvin Winans, the pastor who married Houston and Bobby Brown, will deliver the eulogy.
