Over three hundred people gathered in Atlanta on Monday night to pray for Bobbi Kristina Brown, who remains in critical condition at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta after being found face-down in a bathtub late last month.

"Shining a Light for Healing for Bobbi Kristina Brown" was held at the Riverdale Town Center amphitheater south of Atlanta, and lasted about an hour and a half. Bobbi Kristina's  uncle, Tommy Brown, as well as aunts Tina and Leaola, were present for the vigil,  according to People Magazine.

Speaking on behalf of the family, Tommy Brown said: "I know she thanks all of y'all. Continue to pray for us. Remember when you wake up we should all pray for each other."

Fox News reports that Riverdale Mayor Evelyn Wynn-Dixon was among those who sang gospel hymns on stage, as members of the crowd sang and danced along.

"They bleed and hurt like us," Wynn-Dixon told the crowd before singing the gospel song, "There's a leak in this old building."

He added, "Nobody knows but God. It's not over until God says it's over."

Atlanta Pastor Dukes encouraged the crowd that no matter what happens, the 21 year old daughter of legendary singer Whitney Houston will be okay, as she is held by God.

"We aren't here just to yell, 'Wake Up!'" he said, as quoted by Us Weekly. "Because God is holding her right now, whether she wakes up her not, God has her and she's going to be good either way."

Brian and Poco Reese, both 52, of Johns Creek, Georgia, drove  40-miles to participate in the event, which they called "uplifting."

"We just continue to pray that the Lord does his will and whatever that may be for Bobbi Kristina's life on Earth, we don't know that," Brian Reese told Fox News.

"We watched her grow over the years. We love her," Poco Reese added. "You know, with everything she's gone through, with everything she's endured, we love her even more."

Meanwhile, Brown's anguished family is deciding their next move regarding the 21 year old, who has remained in a coma for ten consecutive days. Her father, Bobby Brown, who marked his 46th birthday last week, has steadfastly remained at his daughter's side, where a source has been singing hymns as she remains unresponsive, according to US Weekly.

Police, citing an ongoing investigation, have not disclosed many details of the circumstances in which Brown was found. In 2012, Houston was found in eerily similar circumstances in a Beverly Hills hotel bathtub, and later died.
