NEW YORK (AP) -- Whitney Houston's final resting place will be next to her father, John Russell Houston Jr.

Houston will be laid to rest at the Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey, after funeral services this weekend, a source close to the family confirmed. Houston's father was buried there in 2003.

Fifteen hundred guests are expected to attend the private funeral services including Aretha Franklin, Clive Davis and Stevie Wonder. Houston, who was 48, died in Beverly Hills, the day before the Grammy awards.

The funeral service will be held at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark.
