THEY won't be there in person, but Whitney Houston's millions of fans worldwide will be able to share in her homecoming service this weekend as they watch her private funeral on the internet and elsewhere.

Houston's publicist, Kristen Foster, says AP will be the only video camera allowed inside the funeral in Newark.

The agency will stream the service on http://livestream.com/aplive.

The event also will be available to broadcasters via satellite.

It will provide a much-needed connection for fans who have lacked a formal place to eulogise Houston, one of the world's best-selling artists who died in Beverly Hills, California on Saturday at the age of 48.
