August 18, 2011 (CHICAGO)

Christina Santiago's grew up in the Bronx in New York City, and that's where Thursday's service was held.

In a statement, Santiago's family says they are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support.

Five people were killed last Saturday when a gust of wind toppled the stage before the band Sugarland was to perform.

Santiago's partner Alisha Brennon was injured in the collapse and remains hospitalized.
