In Los Angeles, as in other cities, mourners honored her with a moment of silence at the First A.M.E. Church at the morning service.
Pastor John J. Hunter described Houston as “one of the most dynamic voices of our time,” according to an announcement on the church website. “We are all deeply saddened by her passing and our hearts go out to her family,” he said.
Others will hold a candlelight vigil Monday night in LA’s Leimert Park. Scheduled to take place at 5 p.m., the vigil will last at least two hours and hosted by Najee Ali’s Project Islamic Hope.
“It will be a chance to come together and to comfort one another,” Ali said.
Also, BET plans to pay special tribute to the singer on 106 & Park tonight at 6pm E/P with a three-hour special episode.
