Newark police officials have urged the public to stay home and watch the service online.Police Director Samuel DeMaio said those not on the guest list for the funeral will not be allowed inside the New Hope Baptist Church premises in Newark, NJ, reported CBS online.

"There's not going to be anyone allowed within the inner perimeter that's going to be set up around the church, other than people that are invited," he said. DeMaio said fans won't even be able to get close enough to see anything. There won't be a procession and the late singer's body will be quietly brought in at an undisclosed time.
The guest list will reportedly include Elton John, Oprah Winfrey, Bill Cosby, Mariah Carey, Denzel Washington, Jay-Z, Beyonce and Brandy. The legendary Stevie Wonder, along with Houston's godmother Aretha Franklin and Jennifer Hudson will be singing solos.
