NEW YORK (CBS) -- Fans who want to bid farewell to Whitney Houston will be able to watch her private funeral online.

The singer's publicist, Kristen Foster, announced that The Associated Press will be the pool camera for the Saturday ceremony in Newark, N.J., and the AP will stream the service on livestream.com/aplive. It also will be available to broadcasters via satellite.

Houston died at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California last Saturday at the age of 48. Her body was flown back to her native New Jersey on Monday.

Some fans were disappointed when they learned that the funeral was private and no public memorial was planned.

Houston was born in Newark. The service will be at New Hope Baptist Church, where she sang as a child. Gospel singer Marvin Winans of the famed Winans family will reportedly give the eulogy at the request of Houston's mother, gospel singer Cissy Houston.
