A fire brigade spokesman refused to reveal information about the illness of his daughter, but said he was "awake and talking" when he was transported.

Brown, who reported the news of the celebrity website TMZ.com that angered the government for not recognizing in the hotel room where he found the bodies of her mother, was hospitalized for stress and freedom, a source close to the family told Reuters. A hospital spokeswoman declined to comment.

A New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey, the city of Houston, fans and admirers gathered to celebrate his life for the three services on Sunday, part of which is directed to the singer and his family.

The cards and flowers tied to the fence of the church, where the congregation hugged and cried at the entrance. Among those paying homage are the Reverend Jesse Jackson, civil rights activist.

"This speed leaves us traumatized," said Jackson, who grew up singing in Houston and New Hope. This is a red brick church on a quiet side street near downtown Newark, where Houston began a career as a soloist in the gospel choir in 1970.

"We rely on our faith. Our hearts are full now, "said Jackson.

The cause of the mystery of death

Houston, who raised his voice rose to the top of the pop music world, but that rejection is driven by staff in drug abuse, died on Saturday afternoon on the fourth floor room at the Beverly Hilton. He was 48.

Police and coroner's office in Los Angeles continue their investigation to determine cause of death, which came on the eve of the Grammy awards in the same hotel where the Houston mentor, mogul Clive Davis, the party was held a year before the event.

Police said there were no immediate signs of foul play.

Los Angeles Times, citing an unidentified source who reported the case, said investigators tried to determine whether he could drown in the bathtub shortly before he was scheduled to attend a pre-Grammy celebration.

The Times said Houston, matted, sweaty and smelling of alcohol, behave erratically when he was stopped by Hilton, two days earlier, accompanied by his daughter, for testing. He was seen waving his arms frantically, jumping up and down on the dance floor and wander through the lobby aimlessless, the newspaper said in its online edition.

Ex-wife was "very sad"

In a statement given by People magazine, the former wife of Houston, R & B singer Bobby Brown, with whom he shared a long battle with substance abuse, says: "I am saddened by the death of my ex-wife, Whitney Houston. "

Brown, father of Bobbi Kristina, described by an unidentified family as "beside himself" sick, the magazine said.

On the West Coast, First AME Church of Los Angeles, the city's oldest African American congregation, held a special moment of silence in memory of Houston.

"Many of us are rooting and pulling it out because it was a great blessing for generations, anointed with a special voice," said the Rev. John Hunter parishioners. "He replied. This world does not understand. "

Up to 200 people attend church in Newark, where Denise Dean, 57, recalled once hearing Houston sing. Dean says he's still a signature faded old checkbook.

"That we pray for the family," Dean said later.
