Your missing it. The Winans are singing.

I'll chalk the "Mother Teresa" comment up to the hyperbole that can happen at these events.

Yeah, wasn't there similar talk at the Michael Jackson funeral?

oh I missed that.. really.. maybe the past decade we haven't seen Whitney she was feeding the hungry and housing the homeless somewhere :shuffle:

Hey now, she provided food and housing to many, many drug dealers. Don't judge.

It's awfully Catholic cardinal, actually. Not sure that's a great image for a skater to invoke.

Al Sharpton tweeting from the ceremony? :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:


I am at Whitney's funeral. I spoke with Bobby Brown trying to calm him down and not distract from the services. Today is about Whitney!


I am going back in the services, I did my best out here. Can't tweet from inside the sanctuary, I hope the press will not distort the day.

And one more a good measure: :rolleyes:

Kevin Costner up now. I'll bet he's glad of the work. :P

Costner's eulogy was a little odd to me. Maybe I am missing something, but why was he talking about her role in "The Bodyguard" like it was Oscar worthy? Was it really that great and I missed it?

Anyone else wondering if there will be a push to get Whitney an Oscar for "Sparkle" a la Health Ledger?

She was surprisingly good in the movie - to the amazement of some.
The film was enormously successful.

If she is as good in her role as Heath was in Batman, than no problem.

The Bodyguard Soundtrack was by far her biggest album I believe and the movie is what lead her to record "I will Always Love You'
David Foster said that when Whitney was recording the song, Cissy looked at him and said this is greatness-pretty much this is going to by my daughter's defining song. Apparently Robyn in her letter said a similar thing that Whitney pretty much felt like she peaked at that song.
