NEW YORK — Fans worldwide who want to bid Whitney Houston farewell will be able to watch her private funeral on the World Wide Web.

Her publicist, Kristen Foster, announced that The Associated Press will be the pool camera for the Saturday ceremony in Newark, N.J., and the AP will stream the service on livestream.com/aplive.

Houston died in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Saturday at the age of 48. Her body was flown back to her native New Jersey on Monday.

Some fans were disappointed when they learned that the funeral was private and no public memorial was planned.

Houston was born in Newark and the service will be at New Hope Baptist Church.

Satellite coordinates and contact information have been made available in a media advisory. Footage will be available in SD and HD.
