This past Saturday in Newark, the late Whitney Houston was honored at McDonald’s Inspiration Celebration Gospel Tour! As images of the Whitney Houston appeared on the Prudential Center video screens, Whitney’s mother Cissy sang “This Day,” one of her most powerful spiritual recordings.
Whitney’s brother Gary also paid a tribute to his late sister and led the New Hope Mass Choir in a rendition of “Let the Church Say Amen.” It was at New Hope where Whitney Houston first sang in public, and it was at New Hope where Cissy Houston became the minister of music. The world also has the opportunity to visit New Hope for Whitney Houston’s funeral.
