Whitney Houston's funeral service will be streamed online this weekend. A single video camera will be placed in the New Hope Baptist Church in the singer's hometown of Newark, New Jersey, and the footage will be made available to media outlets through the Associated Press.

The funeral, which will be held on Saturday at noon, is expected to last about 90 minutes. Marvin Winans, the gospel singer and pastor who married Houston and Bobby Brown in 1992, will deliver the eulogy. After the service, Houston will be buried at the Fair View Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey, where her father was buried in 2003.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
