Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder are set to perform musical tributes to Whitney Houston during her funeral in New Jersey on Saturday, Gossip Cop has confirmed.
We’re also told Oprah Winfrey has been invited to the private service at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, and that Kevin Costner may speak about his co-star from The Bodyguard.
A rep for the actor would not comment on Costner’s participation.
Houston’s musical mentor Clive Davis is confirmed to speak, and gospel singer Marvin Winans is slated to eulogize his longtime friend.
Despite reports elsewhere, Houston’s ex-husband Bobby Brown will be in attendance at the funeral.
Gossip Cop will update as more information emerges.
