Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin to Perform at Whitney Houston's Funeral

Published:
When Whitney Houston is laid to rest on Saturday, she will receive an all-star tribute. Both Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder are confirmed to perform at the singer's memorial service in Newark, New Jersey.

The service will take place at noon at the New Hope Baptist Church, where Houston attended and performed in her youth. Newark Police Director Samuel DeMaio anticipates thousands of fans attending and has urged people to watch the ceremony from home, as it will be streamed online and broadcast on network television.

Police have also issued subpoenas for Houston's medical records after the discovery of prescription drugs in the Beverly Hills hotel suite where Houston died on Saturday, at age 48. An initial autopsy has been conducted, but the details have not been released. The Los Angeles Coroner's office has called this standard prodecure.
