Mark Ronson Performs 'Valerie' in Tribute to Amy Winehouse [Video]
A day after her funeral, Amy Winehouse’s frequent collaborator Mark Ronson remembered his close friend during a show at Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London. Ronson, who produced Winehouse’s Grammy-winning album Back to Black, was joined by the late soulstress’ back-up singers while performing “Valerie,” their collaboration off his Version album.
“The genius in that woman and what she shared with us is pretty special,” Ronson told the crowd. “I’m not going to get all morbid on you. It’s just nice to be playing music to people who like good music. She is my sister, wherever she is.”
He encouraged the audience to sing along. “We want you to sing this shit as loud as you can. … Amy, this is for you.”
