Dionne Bromfield Commends Godmother Amy Winehouse in Song at Big Chill Festival
Amy Winehouse must be looking down on her 15-year-old goddaughter Dionne Bromfield with an ear-to-ear smile. When performing at the Big Chill festival in the UK on Saturday, Bromfield commented on her late mentor and performed a cover of Winehouse's 'Love Is a Losing Game' in a touching tribute to the singer who died just a month ago tomorrow.
"She was an amazing singer," Bromfield declared in her intro, where she was visibly emotional and moved, stepping away from the mic stand for a brief moment. "She was not only my godmother, but she was my mentor and my boss as well."
Winehouse certainly rubbed off on her talented goddaughter. Bromfield is petite, but her hair has a life of its own, just like Winehouse's coif did. Bromfield also has a big, bold, room-filler of a voice. Just like -- you guessed it -- her godmother!
In addition to performing her own songs along with a Winehouse cover, Bromfield sang Cee Lo's often-covered 'Forget You' and The Shirelles' 'Mama Said.' Winehouse was known for her love of the '60s girl group, as well.
Winehouse actually made her final onstage performance before her death with Bromfield.
