Amy Winehouse’s former backing singer Zalon performed a stunning tribute to the late star at Leo The Lion’s gig on Wednesday.

The soulful singer had just arrived in the UK after touring Brazil and was close to tears as he belted out his emotional track You Let Me Breath, dedicated to his friend Amy.

Before she died, Winehouse had signed Zalon as an artist to her Lioness label and encouraged him to perform his solo work during her live sets.

He told the audience to remember Amy for her talent saying:

Forget everything you read in the papers. It wasn’t all true. Amy was an amazing person she taught me a lot.

Zalon is performing at Apartment 58 for the Playtime Boutique City Festival alongside Delilah and The Noisettes on September 29.
