After deciding against a public funeral earlier this week, Whitney Houston's family has announced the "invitation only" ceremony will be broadcast live over the internet.

Houston's publicist told CNN the service will originate from New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey and confirmed that dozens of celebrities will be some of the 1,500 people in attendance.

The service will begin at 11am Evansville time on Saturday and can be seen on the Associated Press' LiveStream page.
