The memory of Amy Winehouse will always live on.
The singer’s family and closest friends, including Mark Ronson, honored Winehouse at her Amy Winehouse Foundation Ball at London’s Dorchester Hotel.
“Amy obviously died too young but the fact that her foundation can champion her legacy and her humanitarian ways is the way for her to kind of keep living,” said Ronson.
The special tribute show featured performances from Jamie Cullum, Matt Goss and Tyler James but the focus was on making those struggling with addiction aware of early intervention, according to Amy’s father Mitch.
“We need to do as much as we can to raise as much money as we can for disadvantaged young people,” he said. “The key is early intervention, which means getting into schools and speaking to young people at the earliest opportunity. Giving them all the information they need and allowing them to make the appropriate decisions for them.
