Today was Whitney Houston’s funeral, it was broadcast live to million of people, all of them eager to share in the mourning of an idol.

His speech, though a little random at the beginning, gave us an insight into the Whitney that very few people were privileged enough to see. From her beginnings in a church choir through to an embarrassing mishap during a screen test for her most famous film, The Bodyguard. I was laughing and bawling in equal measure, particularly at the end: check it out below.
