Watch Live: Remembering Whitney Houston

Stevie Wonder will sing at the private funeral of Whitney Houston on Saturday in what promises to be a very musical service. Publicist Kristen Foster also confirms that invitations went out to Houston's ex-husband, Bobby Brown; her co-star in "The Bodyguard," Kevin Costner; and Oprah Winfrey.

Houston's longtime musical mentor, Clive Davis, will speak at the funeral. The eulogy will be given by gospel singer and longtime family friend Marvin Winans. Others who will be part of the program include Donnie McClurkin, Tyler Perry, Kim Burrell, Rickey Minor, Alicia Keys, Dionne Warwick and Cece Winans, Foster said.

Houston died Saturday in Beverly Hills, Calif., at the age of 48.
