Amy Winehouse cremated after funeral held in London
A funeral for singer Amy Winehouse was held in London on Tuesday, July 26.
Mourners such as Kelly Osbourne and music producer Mark Ronson gathered with Winehouse's friends and family, including her parents and brother, to say their final goodbyes. Osbourne wore her hair in a beehive as a tribute to the singer, who sported a similar look at the height of her fame (see photos from Amy Winehouse's funeral).
An autopsy failed to determine the cause of the singer's death. Police are awaiting the results of toxicology tests, which are expected to take two to four weeks.
More than 100 people attended the service at Edgwarebury Cemetery in north London. Mark Ronson, who produced Winehouse's Grammy-winning single "Rehab" and her 2006 album "Back To Black," was also among them.
The Jewish service was led by a rabbi and included prayers in English and Hebrew and reminiscences from Winehouse's father, Mitch Winehouse, who ended his eulogy with the words "Goodnight, my angel, sleep tight. Mummy and Daddy love you ever so much."
His eulogy also included funny and happy memoires from the singer's childhood too.
"Mitch was funny, he told some great stories from childhood about how headstrong she was, and clearly the family and friends recognized the stories and laughed along," family spokesman Chris Goodman told the Associated Press. "He stressed so many times she was happier now than she had ever been and he spoke about her boyfriend and paid tribute to a lot of people in her life."
The service was being followed by cremation at London's Golders Green Crematorium before the family begins Shiva, a Jewish traditional period of mourning."Knowing she wasn't depressed, knowing she passed away, knowing she passed away happy - it makes us all feel better," Mitch Winehouse later said in a statement, published by People magazine. "She was the happiest she has been for years."
Meanwhile, MTV reportedly plans to re-broadcast a concert the singer had back in 2007 to celebrate her "life and musical legacy," according to The Hollywood Reporter. The concert was a part of MTV's 45th at Night concert series and included a collaboration with rapper Mos Def on the song "Love Is a Losing Game" as well as performances of her hit songs "Rehab" and "Back To Black."
