Whitney Houston reached her final resting place in style yesterday.

The star, who was found dead in a Los Angeles hotel last week aged 48, was laid to rest at a private ceremony in New Jersey.

She was buried at the cemetery in Westfield where her father was interred in 2003.

Onlookers lined the route as the police-escorted motorcade headed toward it and the hearse carrying her casket entered the cemetery.

The star was mourned at a funeral on Saturday at the church in Newark where she sang in the choir as a child. The invitation-only service featured a tribute by some of the biggest names in music, including Stevie Wonder and Alicia Keys.

Kevin Costner and music mogul Clive Davis were among those who spoke.
