A brave Dionne Bromfield performed at welsh music festival Ponty’s Big Weekend despite hearing about the death of her godmother Amy Winehouse.
Amy Winehouse died of a suspected ecstasy overdose yesterday and though the news must have been devastating for the 15-year-old, she still sang for her hundreds of fans at the festival .
Christian Hanagan, head of strategy for the festival, said
Dionne performed but she did leave immediately afterwards. It was a good performance. We were aware of the issues and the crowd was aware too and they gave her a rapturous applause.
Amy Winhouse’s final public appearance was last Wednesday when she joined Bromfield onstage during her performance of ‘Mama Says’ at the iTunes Festival.
