Due to leg spasms and muscle pain, Aretha Franklin was unable to attend Whitney Houston's funeral on Saturday, canceling not only her appearance but a planned performance in honor of her goddaughter, as well.

But the late legend was very much in Franklin's thoughts the evening before, as she played a concert for fans at Radio City Music Hall in New York City and honored Houston with a pair of covers.

According to a new report, the family of Whitney Houston has more reasons than ever to be concerned over the future of Bobbi Kristina Brown.

The 18-year old daughter of Whitney and Bobby Brown has been in the spotlight ever since her mother passed away, with loved ones supposedly so concerned over her spiraling state that they were pushing all week for her to enter rehab - and that was prior to the latest alleged incident.

Whitney Houston's close friend and The Bodyguard co-star Kevin Costner delivered a touching speech at her funeral yesterday in Newark, New Jersey.

He recalled to mourners gathered at the church and fans watching online that Houston, despite her fame, was a humble woman who doubted herself.

"She would call you for no reason at all, but just to say 'hi.' She was a beautiful human being - really caring, beautiful, thoughtful."

During an emotional Whitney Houston funeral today, which included moving speeches from friends and loved ones, Stevie Wonder took to the piano at one point and shared memories of the late artist.

He praised God for simply allowing him to live at the same time at Houston, talked about recording a duet with her in the studio and then made onlookers laugh by owning up for a mini crush on the legend.
