Stars pay tribute to Winehouse

Stars at the Mobo Awards have paid tribute to Amy Winehouse.

The event was led by the late singer's goddaughter Dionne Bromfield, who sang Love Is A Losing Game.

Speaking ahead of performing the tribute, the 15-year-old, who was also nominated for the best UK R&B/soul act, said: "It's amazing. It's really emotional but I'm really pleased to be doing it.

"Amy loved the Mobos, it was one of her favourite awards."

Speaking about the Winehouse tribute, Kanya King said: "It was very difficult in rehearsals as one would expect but we wanted to pay tribute to her."

Winehouse was found dead at her flat in north London on July 23. She was 27.

The Back To Black singer had fought a lengthy public battle with drink and drug problems but toxicology results showed there were no illegal substances in her system.
