0218_houston_home_going_BN
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.

Has Aretha overcome her fear of flying? The funeral is really beautiful. Of course, you got people on here making off the wall, cruel comments. I guess they have nothing better to do with their lives.

R Kelly was surprisingly moving but for me. Tyler Perry could be a minister. BeBe made me cry. Costner was way too long. CeCe was THE BOMB! That song was perfect! Dionne's poem was perfect as well. This was one long service though.

Should they let somebody with the name "Minor" that close to R. Kelly?

It is sad that such a tremendous talent as Whitney Houston died so young from her addictions, however, the lowering of flags to half staff and the assignment of a Police honor guard watching over her casket was extremely inappropriate and disrespectful to those deserving of such honors. The selection of the creature known as R Kelly to sing at the funeral says a lot about the planners of the funeral and their moral standards.

Wow, both R. Kelly and Ray J are in New Jersey at this funeral. I have a feeling quite a few young ladies will be drenched in urine by this evening.

I don't see her drug dealer on that list, she spent more time with him than the church...
