TV viewers will also be able to watch on E! and BET. Both channels will begin their special coverage at 11:30 a.m. ET

A eulogy will be given by gospel singer Marvin Winans and other speakers include her "Bodyguard" co-star Kevin Costner and mentor Clive Davis. Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder will perform.

In an invitation to the event obtained by TMZ, the family is referring to the burial ceremony as a "home going service."
