It’s hard to believe it’s already been a week since Whitney Houston was found dead, but it has, and today is her funeral, which is being streamed live online by the AP. Unfortunately, they haven’t made the player embeddable, but we will be providing live updates from the Twitterverse throughout the ceremony.
If you wish to actually watch the service, the AP’s stream is available here.
Update: It looks like the AP is also streaming via UStream, which is embeddable, so here you go:

Update 2: Apparently clicking play will take you to a different page anyway, but whatever. You get to watch it.
A private ceremony was reportedly held on Friday, but today’s stream gives the public, including her enormous fan base an opportunity to pay their last respects before she’s laid to rest.
It also highlights the always connected world we’re living in today, where even funerals are being broadcast over the web.
Interestingly enough, as we reported earlier this month, at least one crematorium is even offering such services to customers.
It’s clear that there is still a great deal of interest in Whitney Houston’s death from the general public, as it’s currently dominating Google Trends.
As mentioned above, check out WebProNews.com for some highlights from the Twitterverse during the ceremony.
Services begin at 12:00PM Eastern.
