Bobbi Kristina Brown’s family is still praying for a miracle, and tonight several hundred people gathered for a vigil with that goal in mind.

The “Shining a Light for Healing” vigil began at 7 p.m. at the Amphitheater at Riverdale Town Center in Riverdale, Georgia, just outside of Atlanta, and was open to the public.

People held flashlights but attempts at lighting candles didn’t work because it was too windy. A small stage held Brown family members including her sister Leolah. Bishop Donald Battle began the session, which included gospel songs, prayers, scripture, and a call for healing.

A vocalist who didn’t give his name took the stage and performed “I Need You Now,” Smokie Norful’s soulful song calling for God’s help. The crowd sang along, many raising their hands up in the air in prayer.

“It ain’t over til God says it’s over,” Gwen Battle told the crowd.

As of last Friday, Brown remained on life support after being found unresponsive, face-down in a bathtub last weekend. Brown, 21, the only child of the late Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown, was rushed to North Fulton Hospital in Roswell, where she had been treated, but sources have told ABC News that she has since been moved to the Neurology Intensive Care Unit of Emory University Hospital.
