The Whitney Houston memorial service began this afternoon, as thousands of fans mourned the loss of an icon in her hometown of Newark, NJ.

It’s been a week since Houston was pronounced dead in Beverly Hills, just one day prior to the Grammy Awards. Today, aside from the fans, an incredible amount of celebrities flew in for the event. Among the notable attendees are Dionne Warwick, Jesse Jackson, Tyler Perry, Clive Davis and Alicia Keys.
