    Whitney Houston's funeral will be Saturday, Feb. 18, in the church where she first sang as a child, according to The Associated Press.

    The owner of the Whigham Funeral Home in Newark said that the funeral would be held at the New Hope Baptist Church, but there will be no wake and no public memorial at Newark's Prudential Center, the sports arena + concert venue that Houston's family had discussed as a possible venue.
