Whitney Houston reached her final resting place today.

The star, who was found dead in a Los Angeles hotel last week aged 48, was being laid to rest at a private ceremony in New Jersey.

She was being buried at the cemetery in Westfield where her father was interred in 2003.

Onlookers gathered along the route to her grave site as the police-escorted motorcade headed toward it and the hearse carrying her casket entered the cemetery.

The star was mourned at a funeral yesterday at the church in Newark where she sang in the choir as a child.

The invitation-only service featured a tribute by some of the biggest names in music, including Stevie Wonder and Alicia Keys.

Kevin Costner and music mogul Clive Davis were among those who spoke.
