Dozen attended the prayer service at the Greater Travelers Rest Baptist Church in DeKalb County -- the church Emani attended with her grandmother.
"We all should that Emani is a beautiful angel now watching us from above," Emani's cousin Brooklynn Kirkland told the crowd of mourners.
The little girl's obituary describes a child who enjoyed reading, dancing, cooking and making up songs.
Tuesday's vigil came a day after Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter announced he may seek the death penalty against Eman and Tiffany Moss, Emani's father and stepmother, who are accused of starving the child to death and burning her body.
