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 [Bpbby Brown’s] 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.
AJC.com had more details about the vigil:
Tommy Brown, who served as a producer for the reality show “Being Bobby Brown,” thanked the crowd on behalf of Bobbi Kristina.
“I know she thanks all of y’all,” he said. “Continue to pray for us all. Remember when you wake up we should all pray for each other.”
Rapper Chubb Rock greeted the crowd with a warm welcome.
“The word is why,” he said. “Not why did this happen, why her? It’s more like why are we here? Love is here.”
Meanwhile, WSB-TV in Atlanta reports that police are looking into what might have caused injuries to Bobbi Kristina Brown’s face and mouth. They also are probing suspected drugs discovered in the Roswell, Ga. home where she was found unresponsive, face-down in a bathtub of water on Jan. 31.
The third anniversary of the death of her mother, singer Whitney Houston, is on Wednesday, February 11.
