A list of people scheduled to speak during the "home going service" for Whitney Houston was just shown to the media outside the church ... but one famous name listed will be a no-show.

Aretha Franklin will not be at the service today, CNN is reporting, due to illness.

Tyler Perry, Kevin Costner, Clive Davis and Dionne Warwick are among those scheduled to speak. 

The service is scheduled to begin at 12:00 PM ET/9:00 AM PT and we'll have it for you live.

Whitney Houston was one of the greatest singers. The flags being lowered right now (approved by the NJ governor) is the right decision because it was done for other singers in NJ.
Maybe ,one of the Best national anthem that was done in Superbowl was by Whitney Houston in 1991.

Flag at half-staff? For Whitney?!?! Gimme a break! Next we'll see her nominated for Canonization! For crying out loud, she was a drug addict, not a saint or somebody worthy of flying the flag at half staff for. May she rest in peace, but this is enough already.

They could have got the boy from Taiwan in to sing the 'Greatest Love of All' - that kid sounds just like Whitney.

Anyone in the know, were Costner and Whitney involved back in the day?
