Bobbi Kristina Brown's family gathered together at Riverdale Town Center Amphitheatre in Georgia Monday night to send love and prayers to Whitney Houston's only daughter who remains on life support.

Many friends and fans of the 21-year-old's late mother turned out to pray for Bobbi Kristina's health, including Uncle Tommy Brown.

"We're getting through it, and we're gonna get through it," he told NBC reporter Gabe Gutierrez. "Just keep your prayers up for Bobbi Kris."

Aunts Tina Brown and Leola Brown also attended the emotional event, sitting onstage while vigil goers entered the venue as some of Houston's hit songs played. 

Family members implored the hundreds of attendees to continuing keeping Bobbi Kristina in their thoughts and prayers during the "Shining a Light for Healing" vigil, and Tommy, brother to Bobbi Kristina's father Bobby Brown, thanked supporters for turning out in waves.

"I know she thanks all of y'all. Continue to pray for us all," he said. "Remember when you wake up we should all pray for each other."

Although she remains in grave, but unchanged condition, Pastor Dukes told the crowd that no matter how her health turns out, she would be OK.

"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."

Riverdale Mayor Evlyn Wynn Dixon took to the stage to talk about how the whole community would support the Brown family and be there for whatever they needed during this trying time.

"No one knows what to do. On behalf of the city council, we got your back with prayers with whatever you do," she said. "Whatever troubles that baby had had, whether she never got over her mama, we pray for her."

Fans of the "I Have Nothing" singer supported Bobbi Kristina as well as neighbors from around town. Local resident Jenny Summers told NBC News that she and her family "had the pleasure of spending just a lot of great time with [Bobbi Kristina]."
