Amy Winehouse Makes Last Appearance on Stage — Watch
In bittersweet Amy Winehouse news, a video of her last appearance on stage has hit the ‘Net.
The singer, who tragically died on Saturday (July 23), of unknown causes, is shown in the clip taking the stage for the last time at the iTunes Festival in North London on Wednesday (July 20), in support of her 15-year-old goddaughter, Dionne Bromfield,
Though she did not perform, the 27-year-old ‘Rehab’ singer shimmied in proud support of her young protégé, wearing jeans and a black shirt, mouthing along coyly, clapping and coaxing cheers from the audience, as Bromfield performed a cover of the Shirelles 1960′s hit ‘Mama Said.’
Winehouse concluded her appearance by rushing over to give Bromfield, who was signed to Winehouse’s Lioness record label, a big hug, as she finished the song. Sadly, it was the last time an audience would see the troubled singer on stage.
Though Winehouse was reportedly declared healthy after a routine checkup on Friday night, she was found dead in her North London home at 4PM on Saturday, by a security guard hired to look after her.
Since the initial autopsy was inconclusive, her family will have to wait until October for the results of her toxicology and histology tests, to determine the exact cause of her death. No drugs were found in her house, and officials from the coroner’s office claim that her death was not suspicious.
“I can’t tell you what this means to us,” her father, Mitch Winehouse, said of the fan-made shrine of flowers, memorabilia and tributes left outside the singer’s home. “It really is making this a lot easier for us. Amy was about one thing, and that was love. Her whole life was devoted to her family and her friends, and to you guys as well.”
