Pop superstar Whitney Houston will most likely be laid to rest on Saturday, Feb. 18th.

Pop superstar Whitney Houston will reportedly be laid to rest on Saturday, Feb. 18th.

 

The 48-year-old singer was found dead in her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel last Saturday, just hours before she was slated to appear at a pre-Grammy gala.

 

The singer readily admitted her struggles with substance abuse, but the cause of death has not yet been determined.

 

Houston, a Newark native, rose to fame after honing her talent as a gospel singer at the New Hope Baptist Church.

 

That very same church will host her funeral, Pastor Joe Carter told the Daily News. The invitation-only service will feature a star-studded choir, Carter said.

The Whigham Funeral Home will be handling the singer's services, though she will reportedly not be buried in Newark.
