After attending Amy Winehouse’s funeral on Monday, Mark Ronson gave a live tribute to the late star at his concert in Greenwich, UK. Accompanied by Dave McCabe, lead singer of The Zutons (who originally wrote and released “Valerie” before Amy’s version was a hit), Ronson played the track and shared some moving words with the crowd.
NME quotes Mark as sharing the following moving words with the audience:
It’s really lovely getting to play some music here for you tonight. That’s what makes everything better. I went to her service yesterday and there was a rabbi that spoke and he said that somebody’s life is measured in deeds and not years and that’s the best thing I heard yesterday. The genius in that woman and what she shared with us is pretty special. I’m not going to get all morbid on you. It’s just nice to be playing music to people who like good music. She is my sister, wherever she is.
Although the two had a falling out during the last album’s recording, it’s clear he still cared for her.
