Tributes from fans worldwide are still pouring in for Whitney Houston... and who wish to bid farewell to the singer will not be disappointed as they will be able to watch her private funeral on the Internet live.

Her publicist, Kristen Foster, announced that the Associated Press (AP) will be allowed a camera at Saturday's ceremony at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark.The funeral will be streamed on AP's Web site and will also be made available to broadcasters.

The ceremony, due to begin at 5 p.m. GMT and 12 p.m. EST, is by invitation only.

Houston started her singing career at the New Hope Baptist Church and her mother Cissy served as music director there for decades.

She will be buried at the Fairview Cemetery in Westfield in her native state of New Jersey next to her father, John Russell Houston.

Meanwhile, friends of the family have already told Houston's ex-husband Bobby Brown that he is not welcome at the funeral or in Bobbi Kristina's life, according to TMZ. They believe Brown is responsible for the drug and alcohol problems both his ex-wife and daughter experienced.

Houston was found unconscious in her bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, while preparations were being made for the Grammys. Her autopsy results may not be made public for up to eight weeks, as speculation rages that Houston may have died from a lethal cocktail of prescription drugs and alcohol.
