Young singer Dionne Bromfield has paid tribute to her godmother Amy Winehouse, who died a year ago today.
Bromfield, who was signed to Amy’s Lioness record label, wrote an impassioned speech about the late singer - who died at the age of 27 from accidental alcohol poisoning - saying how much she misses her.
In a series of tweets, she wrote: “I believe in angels, the kind that heaven sends... Amy you are surrounded by angels who are your friends. Its been a year since you left and I still think about you everyday (sic).
“I know your in a better place and you were to 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 (sic)”
Amy’s father Mitch - who has since set up the Amy Winehouse Foundation in her honour - also thanked fans who had written to him on the social networking site.
He said: “Thank you all for your wonderful messages. We miss Amy so much but her/our work will continue. Long live Amy. Mitch (sic)”
Meanwhile, it has been revealed the singer has sold 1.7 million records since her death.
The figure is made up of sales of the two albums released while Amy was alive, Frank and Back to Black, her singles, and the posthumous collection, Lioness: Hidden Treasures.
