It has not been made official, but the tentative date for Bobbi Kristina Brown’s funeral is Saturday, Aug. 1. When her mother, pop legend Whitney Houston, died in 2012, a barrage of songs were played at her funeral. Some of Bobbi Kristina’s favorite Houston songs, which might play at her own funeral, have been listed below, courtesy of the Wrap.
1.“I’m Your Baby Tonight”: After the tragic death of Houston, the family appeared in a Lifetime reality show called “The Houstons: On Our Own.” During one episode, Bobbi Kristina, an aspiring actress and singer, was asked to sing one of her mother’s songs during a voice lesson with Houston’s musical director, Ricky Minor. At the end, Bobbi Kristina said, “Yeah that was my favorite song.”
2. “I Will Always Love You”: Arguably Houston’s most famous song, “I Will Always Love You" was played when her casket was brought out of the church during her 2012 funeral. Bobbi Kristina mouthed the words and cried when Jordin Sparks performed her rendition of the hit at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards.
3. “Didn’t We Almost Have It All”: Family members reportedly played the tune for Bobbi Kristina during her final days in the hospital, the Wrap wrote.
4. “Greatest Love of All”: Another hit that the family supposedly played for Bobbi Kristina when she was ailing.
5. “God Send Me An Angel” by Amanda Perez: Though Houston didn’t sing the 1991 hit, Alicia Keys covered “God Send Me An Angel” at Houston’s funeral, People magazine wrote.
Bobbi Kristina died Sunday at Peachtree Christian Hospice at the age of 22 after months of being unconscious. She was found unresponsive and face down in a bathtub in her Roswell, Georgia, home on Jan. 31. Her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, is a person of interest, but has not been charged with a crime. He reportedly wants to attend Bobbi Kristina’s funeral, but it’s unlikely that the Browns and the Houstons will welcome him to the service.
