Houston family directs donations to school she attended as a child
NEWARK, New Jersey (AP) ' Whitney Houston's family is asking that any donations in her memory be sent to the arts-focused public school in New Jersey that she attended as a child.
In lieu of flowers, they say mourners should donate to the Whitney Houston Academy of Creative and Performing Arts in East Orange.
Houston died Saturday at a hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Her invitation-only funeral will be Saturday at Newark's New Hope Baptist Church, where she sang in the choir.
The Houston family says no public memorial service is planned at this time.
