Janis and Mitch Winehouse attended a vigil outside the late singer's Camden home
The family and friends of Amy Winehouse were moved to tears as they attended a vigil outside the late singer’s home on the first anniversary of her death.
Janis and Mitch Winehouse, along with her god-daughter Dionne Bromfield and close friend Tyler James, wept as they read the messages of support, love and sadness outside the Camden house, where Winehouse died a year ago.
In an impromptu and emotional move, fans gathered outside the star’s pad and sang Back to Black in tribute to the singer.
Earlier in the day, Dionne Bromfield posted a moving message about the sadness she felt on the first anniversary of her godmother’s death.
She wrote: ‘I believe in angels the kind that heaven sends. Amy, you are surrounded by angels who are your friends.
It’s been a year since you left and I still think about you everyday. I might not show emotion in public but i just love and miss you in my own special way, like when we were alone together.
‘I think of your face and tears roll from my eyes, you were my inspiration, my mentor, my biggest fan, my one true confidante – you were my world. I know you’re in a better place and you were too young to die, that is what hurts so much.
‘God broke our hearts to prove he took the best. God gave you a special gift as sweet as can be your own precious angels to watch over you. There is one thing that’s plain to see, that one day we will meet again.
‘Until then you will always remain in my heart, as I write this I sit and cry remembering the good times and the last time we were together. The fun we had and you dancing on stage with me, the big hug and kisses you gave me.
‘No matter what people say to me you were the best! You had a heart of gold with so much kindness sometimes I pinch myself and wish you would come back. I will never forget you! Amy, you are my best friend, I love you so much.’
After spending time remembering Amy Winehouse at her home, the family then went to one of the singer’s old haunts, Jazz After Dark in Soho, to carry on their personal tribute to Amy.
