What better person to give the eulogy at the funeral of Whitney Houston? Pastor Marvin Winans knows the Houston family very well and even recalls Whitney calling him upon stage at her previous concert, there in Detroit. There is one thing about Whitney Houston, she loved the Lord. Regardless of her personal emotional hardships in life, she never forgot God and always reminded her fans how much she loved him. Pastor Marvin Winans obviously knows how close Whitney was to God and this is why he has been chosen to give the eulogy at his friend's funeral.
Pastor Marvin Winans is the pastor of Perfecting Church in Detroit, MI. He is a part of the famous gospel family and his brother and sister Bebe and CeCe Winans did a previous song with Whitney Houston, 'Hold Up The Light'. CeCe Winans was also in Whitney's wedding and did a song called, 'Count On Me' for the movie, 'Waiting to Exhale'. When you watch the video clip below it will bring back memories of how much she was close to CeCe Winans, the sister of Pastor Marvin Winans. You see, it is not just those love songs that brought couples together, it is also all of those meaningful songs that revealed friendship and even Whitney's close relationship with God.
We love you, Whitney Houston and glad Jesus Christ loves you much more than those in the entertainment industry whom should give you much more love and respect at this time of bereavement. Rest in peace, dear sister.
