Whitney Houston Funeral Service Celebrate Houston’s Voice, Love & Faith During her Homegoing Service at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, NJ … She is Now With Him

 

The funeral was held today for Whitney Houston at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, NJ. Whitney Houston had passed away at the age of 48, tragically far too young.

Even though we are not perfect on Earth, today at Whitney Houston’s Homegoing service actor Keven Costner reminded us that she was the “perfect’ choice for him and her starring role in the 1992 movie “The Bodyguard.” For our many faults, sins and demons there are on Earth, we were also reminded today that we are all ‘perfect” in Heaven. May the grace of the Lord be with you forever Whitney, God Bless and Rest in eternal Peace.

Speaking at the service in Newark, Costner recounted his own second thoughts of putting her up for the role. She was a novice, he said, and the studio had questions of whether choosing a person of color would be good for the box office.

Doubts began to spread to the young entertainer.

In the end, Costner said, Houston nailed the tryout and went on to further fame and success.

“So off you go Whitney, off you go, escorted by an army of angels to your heavenly father,” Costner told mourners at the funeral. “And when you sing before him, don’t you worry. You’ll be good enough.”

At the conclusion of the service Whitney Houston’s coffin was lead from the church was her smash recording  “I Will Always Love You” was played. What better way to finish the service than to hear Houston’s amazing voice fill up the New Hope Baptist Church one more time. What a fantastic voice, imagine that playing in Heaven for eternity?

I would be remiss if I did not mention Whitney Houston’s greatest love of all. Whitney’s amazing voice began in the church and ended there today as well. However, it was obvious today from many that even though she battled her demons of drug addiction, she never lost sight of trying to find “Him”. I am reminded by a post from the Gateway Pundit of Houston’s come back song, that I had forgotten … “I Look to You”. This might be Whitney Houston’s greatest lasting legacy in music to all of us.  Please take a moment and listen. For all those who have looked to HIM during times of loss, hardship and our human failings. Whitney, there is no more pain, only eternal Love and Peace … Rest in Peace.

I Look To You

As I lay me down
Heaven hear me now
I’m lost without a cause
After giving it my all

Winter storms have come
And darkened my sun
After all that I’ve been through
Who on earth can I turn to?

Chorus:
I look to you,
I look to you
After all my strength is gone
In you I can be strong
I look to you,
I look to you
And when melodies are gone In you I hear a song
I look to you

’bout to lose my breath
There’s no more fighting left
Sinking to rise no more
Searching for that open door

And every road that I’ve taken
Led to my regret
And I don’t know if I’m go’n make it
Nothing to do but lift my head

Chorus:

My levees are broken
My walls are coming down on me
My rain is falling
Defeat is calling
I need you to set me free
Take me far away from the battle
I need you
Shine on me!

AMEN WHITNEY HOUSTON!
