Whitney Houston‘s family may have may have nixed public ceremony plans at the Prudential centre in Newark, N.J. in place of a private invite-only ceremony at the New Hope Baptist Church, but that won’t stop fans from seeing the funeral in real time.

Anyone wishing to see the funeral can watch on livestream.com/aplive. A few satellite providers will be showing the services as well.

This follows news of a family dispute over where to put the body to rest. Houston’s mother, Cissy, and cousin, Dionne Warwick, wanted the singer buried in Atlanta where they thought she was happiest; however, other family members encouraged the Houston’s burial in her hometown of Newark.

The family settled on the singer’s local church which holds a maximum of 1,500 people as opposed to the Prudential centre arena’s 18,500 capacity.Services are set for noon Saturday.
