yeah -- i've been an incredibly huge Whitney fan since for about 20 years. literally, she was a part of every single day, whether it was listening to music, participating in her discussion forums, or just bringing her up in conversation. I was rooting for her, but it was really tough being a fan for the past 10 years because it felt like a constant battle to defend her against terrible media stories and to try and remind people of her astonishing accomplishments.

even still - i do appreciate the way people are showing so much love these days. it helps us fans grieve.

Love's In Need Of Love Today was such a special moment because of the energy and Alicia Keys sang her heart out, but the ending with I Will Always Love You was absolutely heartbreaking. I felt really sad for her daughter and mother.

I agree with Erin about people rooting for her, everyone was happy to hear of a waiting to exhale and bodyguard sequel which were signs that she was on the toad to recovery. I dont think the media speaks for the people, it only tries to influence them

Seen her funeral, it was such a beautiful and incredibly moving tribute. Kevin Costners speech was so touching, had me in tears. Such beautiful heart felt words. When they brought the casket out to "I Will Always Love You" i had goose bumps, such a poignant and sad moment.

Rest in Peace Whitney.

i thought it was such an absolutely perfect and beautiful way to honour the life of Whitney Houston. people who knew her on deep personal levels sharing their stories of the woman, the mother, the sista -- not just the star.

the constant running theme was how generous and thoughtful and caring she was to the people in her life. i just loved it.

still feeling sad about this....it's hard to believe how attached you can get to these people you never really knew. i didn't get a chance to watch the funeral but i keep reading how beautiful it was. seems a bit morbid to ask....but does anyone know if there is anywhere i could watch some of the speeches from the funeral?

Kevin Costner gave one of the most touching speeches at Whitney Houston‘s funeral at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday (February 18).

“You weren’t just pretty,” said the 57-year-old actor, who co-starred in 1992′s The Bodyguard with Whitney. “You were as beautiful as a woman could be. And people didn’t just like you Whitney. They loved you.”

Watch Kevin‘s tribute below.
