(CBS/AP) Preparations are well under way for Whitney Houston's funeral on Saturday - exactly one week after the pop star died at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles at the age of 48.

43185047_1882685861827959_76043009690596The funeral comes as officials scramble to put the puzzle pieces surrounding the cause of death together. Authorities are subpoenaing medical and pharmaceutical records, while investigators are looking at hotel surveillance camera footage for clues.

The "deferred" label on Houston's death certificate only prompts more questions -- it means family, friends and fans will have to wait until additional information develops to determine Houston's official cause of death. But one thing is for sure. Houston's music lives on: Her album sales have skyrocketed in the days after her death.

The funeral plans

Houston's funeral will be at New Hope Baptist Church, where she sang as a child. Her eulogy will be given by gospel singer Marvin Winans, a Grammy Award winner and longtime family friend. The funeral will be a private, invitation-only affair.

A source told CNN that Houston's "Bodyguard" co-star Kevin Costner will attend the funeral. There are reports that Stevie Wonder and Houston's godmother Aretha Franklin will perform, while Houston's longtime mentor, Clive Davis, is expected to attend. But there's still no official word on whether Houston's ex-husband, Bobby Brown, 함안출장마사지 will pay his respects at the service.

After the funeral, Houston will be buried in Fair View Cemetery in Westfield, N.J., according to her death certificate. Her father, John Russell Houston Jr., was buried there in 2003.

Meanwhile, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie remains committed to flying flags at half-staff to honor Houston despite receiving complaints because of her drug addiction history.

Live streaming

They won't be there in person, but Houston's millions of fans worldwide will be able to share in her homecoming service Saturday as they watch her private funeral on the Internet and elsewhere.

The late singer's publicist, Kristen Foster, announced Wednesday that the Associated Press will be the only video camera allowed inside at Saturday's funeral in Newark, streaming the service on http://livestream.com/aplive.

Medical records and toxicology report

In Los Angeles, investigators for the coroner's office have subpoenaed records from the singer's doctors and pharmacies who dispensed medication found in the hotel room where she died.

Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said such inquiries are routine in virtually all death investigations.

Police have said there were no signs of foul play, and Winter said there were no signs of trauma on her body when an autopsy was conducted on Sunday.

It will be weeks before toxicology results reveal the medications and quantities, if any, that were in Houston's system when she died. The Grammy winner's history of substance abuse has added to the speculation that her death may have been caused by prescription drugs.

Houston's death certificate listed her cause of death as "deferred," so authorities will wait for the toxicology report.

Houston's reaction to Michael Jackson's death

An eerie video clip has been unearthed and is making the rounds online this week. In a 2009 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Houston talked about how she was deeply shaken by the death of Michael Jackson. Jackson died at age 50 that year from an overdose of the anesthetic propofol.

Houston recalled taping a show celebrating Jackson's 30th career anniversary celebration in 2001. At the anniversary event, Houston was strikingly thin - so much so that rumors spread soon after that she had died. Jackson was also frail.

"I was getting scared," she told Winfrey. "I was looking at myself going, 'No, I don't want this to be like this. This can't happen. Not both of us."'

Music sales

Sales of Houston's recordings have soared since her passing, as fans try to recapture her glory days in the 1980s and 1990s. Old recordings have been propelled to the top of sales charts on iTunes and Amazon.com.
