A private, invitation-only ceremony will be held for the singer (who died Feb. 11 in Beverly Hills) at the New Hope Baptist Church in nearby Newark, NJ.

Meanwhile, as the investigation into Houston's shocking death continues, authorities are expected to question the doctors who prescribed Houston the prescription medications that may have helped lead to her death.
