Sixteen-year-old singer Dionne Bromfield pays tribute to her godmother Amy Winehouse on the one-year anniversary of the soulful London legend’s death from alcohol poisoning.
Bromfield, who is signed to Winehouse’s Lioness label and shared a stage with Winehouse just three days before her death last July, took to her Twitter account to write an emotional letter to her godmother:
“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.
Winehouse was found dead in her Camden home on July 23, 2011. She was 27.
