Glowing Amy performs for Mandela
Amy Winehouse was back on stage in London Friday when she performed two of her hits ‘Rehab’ and ‘Valerie’ at a special concert as part of Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday tribute.
Everyone welcomed her with loud cheers and was impressed by her strong vocals and her really healthy looks, according to the reports.
Amy was wearing her famous huge beehive with a bright heart-shaped pin inscribed with “Blake”, her husband’s name. Generally Amy looked much better than expected, especially taking into account her recent hospitalization and health issues.
Besides singing two of her songs, Winehouse took lead vocals in a version of ‘Free Nelson Mandela,’ alongside Jerry Dammers, the writer of the anthem, and most of the concert’s performers and then joined everyone to sing ‘Happy birthday’ to Nelson Mandela.
Here’s Amy singing her famous ‘Rehab’. Honestly, I expected something grander from her. but the dancers rock.
Organizers of Friday’s gig feared Winehouse would miss the concert after she failed to attend a scheduled photocall on Thursday, the source reported.
Generally the concert was aimed at raising money for Mandela’s 46664 AIDS charity – named after his prison number. The concert followed the fundraising dinner on Wednesday night, which was attended by Bill Clinton, Gordon Brown, Oprah Winfrey, Robert De Niro, Will Smith, Uma Thurman and others.
