Whitney Houston will be laid to rest in Newark, NJ.

Whitney Houston will go home as she will be laid to rest in her birthplace of Newark, New Jersey.

According to NBC New York, Houston, 48, who was found dead in her Beverly Hills Hilton hotel room on Saturday (Feb. 11), will be laid to rest in her NJ hometown sometime later this week.

The funeral is reportedly being arranged by Whigham Funeral Home.

While Whigham will not confirm or deny the reports, according to New Jersey’s The Star-Ledger, Whigham handled the arrangements for multiple family members of Houston’s, specifically her late father Arthur Lee Warrick in 2003.

As a NJ resident myself, I almost feel the need to attend the funeral service of the musical legend. What do you think? Should fans be allowed to attend?
