The first photo of Whitney Houston's distraught mother has been revealed as she visits the funeral parlour where her daughter's body is being held in Newark.
Cissy Houston, Whitney's mother, was accompanied by several members of the family including the singer's cousin Dionne Warwick at the Whigham Funeral Home in Newark, New Jersey where Whitney's body is being held.
There was no sign of her 18-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina who most likely would have found the visit too much after the devastating loss.
The singer was found dead in the bathtub of her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Saturday afternoon, just hours before she was due to attend Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party a few floors downstairs.
Check out the pics of the family in the gallery below.
