Bobbi Kristina Brown was held in the “light for healing” Monday night outside Atlanta, on the eve of the third anniversary of her mother Whitney Houston’s death.
Close to 300 people came out for the candlelight vigil to support Bobbi Kristina Brown, as she continues to remain on life support after being found unresponsive in a bathtub at her home on Jan. 31.
Although Bobbi Kristina’s father, Bobby Brown, and grandmother, Cissy Houston, were not spotted at the “Shining a Light for Healing” vigil, which was held at the amphitheater at Riverdale Town Center in Riverdale, Georgia, her uncle, Tommy Brown, as well as aunts Tina and Leaola, were present for the vigil, which began at 7 p.m. and lasted for an hour and half.

The event, which was open to the public, included prayers and singing. Riverdale mayor Evelyn Wynn-Dixon was on hand, lending his voice with supporters in singing gospel hymns as candles glowed and cell phones were flashed.
Tommy Brown spoke on behalf of the family.
“I know she thanks all of y’all.” he said. “Continue to pray for us. Remember when you wake up we should all pray for each other.”
