Whitney Houston was buried today at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, N.J.
Houston was buried next to her father, John Russell Houston, who passed away in 2003. As we previously reported, Houston’s casket was heavily guarded leading up to the burial.


TMZ noted that the burial was a private, family-only ceremony, much unlike Houston’s funeral yesterday (Feb. 18). Houston’s three-hour funeral was aired on CNN and streamed online for fans. Funeral guests included Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige and Rev. Al Sharpton, with performances by Alicia Keys, R. Kelly and Stevie Wonder.

The burial took place not far from the funeral site, the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, N.J. Our thoughts and prayers are with Houston’s family and friends. May she rest in peace and live on through her music.
