Just days before her shocking and untimely death, Amy Winehouse performed one final act of kindness. She helped promote her (unofficial) goddaughter's career.
At the iTunes Festival in London, Amy Winehouse showed up on stage to help draw attention to up-and-coming Dionne Bromfield, 15. While the 27-year-old singer did not actually sing in the microphone, she did dance around a bit. This performance ended better than her previous one in Belgrade where fans ended up booing her off the stage because the "performance" was so bad.
Because of Amy Winehouse's death, people are even more interested in Dionne Bromfield, her 15-year-old goddaughter. She was on stage during the singer's final tragic public appearance. Winehouse was obviously there to give her goddaughter a boost, and now that she has died, the boost was great indeed. While the world mourns the late singer, everybody is suddenly hugely interested in the 15-year-old.
Guess what? Dionne Bromfield is goodÂ—really, really good. Hopefully she will be able to do something great with this talent that her late fairy godmother helped with as it was just budding. Check out the official YouTube sampler of her second album, Good for the Soul. The album's first single, Yeah Right, is now currently available in the U.S. through iTunes or Spotify.
What do you think of Amy Winehouse's last act of kindness? Will Dionne Bromfield end up being a star? Will her "Auntie Amy" have anything to do with it?
