Will speak at Whitney Houston's funeral
Kevin Costner is set to give a eulogy at the funeral of Whitney Houston this weekend.

The Hollywood actor, who starred with Houston in the hit movie The Bodyguard, from which the classic song I Will Always Love You is featured, will talk about their friendship.

The movie broke box-office records when it was released 20 years ago and saw Houston recognised as a serious actress for the first time.

Clive Davis, the renowned record producer and a close friend of the late singer, will also give a moving speech during the funeral.

"Clive has been a complete rock for her family this entire time,' a source told People magazine.

"He's been with her since the beginning, and he's been everything to them."

Houston was known for having one of the greatest voices ever to be recorded in the history of music.

Although she had a very successful music career, this was often overshadowed by her volatile relationship with her ex-husband Bobby Brown.

The singer passed away last weekend after being found in a hotel in Beverly Hills. She was 48.
