According to Fox 2 News,  Funeral arrangements are set for Whitney Houston. She will be laid to rest Saturday in New Jersey. Her family is planning a private funeral in Newark.

“If you scratch the surface, it didn’t take you long to find out that she was still that little girl from New Jersey,” he said.

However, that little girl, who we all knew as a superstar, is gone.

“I really do miss Whitney,” Winans remarked.

Winans, who is also a pastor at Detroit’s Perfecting Church, knew Whitney Houston and her family very well.

“When she was here in November, she was at church. I did not know … that was the last time I would see her,” he explained.
