Today was a somber one for music, as the life of Whitney Houston was celebrated during a private funeral held in Newark, New Jersey. Many musicians paid their tributes—some very personal and emotional ones—as one of music’s legends was laid to rest. Amongst them were Alicia Keys and Stevie Wonder, who performed “Send Me An Angel” and “Ribbon In The Sky,” respectively. R. Kelly also performed “I Look To You,” which was written by R. Kelly for Houston’s 2009 album. Watch their heavy-hearted performances from the private service.
