Amy Winehouse Remembered by Family and Friends at Funeral

Mark Ronson

Amy Winehouse’s family and friends gathered to say goodbye to the beloved soul singer. Mourners shared prayers, tears, and laughter at Golders Green Crematorium in London on Tuesday before heading to Southgate Progressive Synagogue for a private funeral that was attended by 300-400 people including the 27-year-old’s mother and father, brother Alex, recent boyfriend Reg Traviss, protégée Dionne Bromfield, and producer Mark Ronson. Kelly Osbourne sported her blonde hair in a beehive in tribute to her friend.

During the “joyful” celebration, Winehouse’s father Mitch spoke about his headstrong daughter. “Goodnight, my angel, sleep tight. Mummy and daddy love you ever so much,” he said at the end of his emotional eulogy. He plans to set up a foundation in her name to help people struggling with addiction.

The Jewish service included prayers in English and Hebrew and concluded with a rendition of Carole King’s “So Far Away,” which father and daughter had often sung together.

  11. yooo

    I am so heartbroken by her passing. She was the only one in this generation that I felt, who really got it. She knew how to be inspired by older artist yet make her own music classic and unique. I listened to her music for 2 years straight back in 2006 and cant stop listening to it now. She had so much music left in her–she could have recorded an album full of jazz standards and it would have sold millions. She was the closest thing we had to Billie Holiday—R.I.P Amy :-(
