Amy Winehouse’s producer, Mark Ronson, paid tribute to the late singer last night by playing “Valerie” onstage at London’s Royal Naval College.
Ronson was joined on stage by Zutons lead singer Dave McCabe, who wrote the track. Winehouse and Ronson covered the tune on Ronson’s “Version” album.
Later, Ronson brought members of Winehouse’s backing band on stage, as well as singer Charlie Waller, for a cover of “Back To Black,” according to NME and BBC Newsbeat.
Ronson told 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.” He also told the audience, “She is my sister, wherever she is.”
