Bing: Amy Winehouse's unreleased music
Winehouse was found dead at her London home on July 23, 2011, and teen
singer Bromfield, who was the last person to appear onstage alongside Winehouse,
is determined to continue the singer's musical legacy. Bromfield has recorded a
new track named "Black Butterfly," in honor of her godmother, and reveals she
was inspired during Winehouse's funeral service to write the song.
She tells Britain's Sunday Mirror, "I want to continue Amy's legacy. It's an
awful lot of pressure, but it's also a massive compliment to think that I can. I
was the last person she was with onstage and automatically people felt like that
was saying something. ... The song is called 'Black Butterfly.' There was a
black butterfly that flew in at Amy's funeral and it landed on Kelly Osbourne's
shoulder. It stayed there for the whole service, then flew out as soon as the
service had finished. It's probably the best song I've ever written, and I was
crying when I recorded it."
