Houston's Casket Arrives at Church for Funeral

NEWARK, New Jersey — The hearse carrying Whitney Houston's casket has arrived at the New Jersey church where her funeral is being held.

About 1,500 people were invited to the service Saturday at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark. Houston sung in the church choir there as a child.

Houston died Feb. 11 in California, the day before the Grammy awards. She was 48.

A gospel choir was rehearsing in the church hours before the service, and roses and lilies surround the pulpit.
