Amy Winehouse was memorialized today in a private ceremony today in North London, which was then followed by cremationat a Golders Green crematorium.
Mark Ronson, the Jewish producer who helped create her 2006 master work “Back to Black,” attended the services. When news of her death first hit, Ronson tweeted that he lost his “musical soulmate.” Also in attendance at the private ceremony was close friend and reality show starlet, Kelly Osbourne. She wore her hair in a beehive as a tribute to Winehouse, who resurrected this particular look of the 60s girl group the Ronettes and took it to even great — both literal and figurative — heights.
The service ended with a playing of “So Far Away,” by Carole King (born Carol Klein), which had been Amy’s favorite song.
