Music industry executives, her band mates, close friends and family gathered Tuesday at a synagogue in Edgware, North London, to pay tribute to Amy Winehouse, the soulful singer with the beehive and velvety vocals.
Winehouse was found dead at her London apartment on Saturday, and her funeral, held at Edgwarebury Cemetery, was attended by about 150 people, including close friend Kelly Osbourne, who wore her hair in Winehouse’s signature beehive style; Mark Ronson, who produced her 2006 album Back to Black, the last of her music released before her death; and boyfriend Reg Traviss.
“Goodnight my angel,” her father, Mitch, said to mourners gathered. “Sleep tight. Mommy and Daddy love you ever so much.”
One mourner told PEOPLE, “It was very moving yet quite very humorous at times. It was a wonderful tribute to Amy.”
When the memorial closed at 1:15 p.m.,Carole King’s “So Far Away”, one of Winehouse’s favorite songs that she had once performed as a duet with her father, was played. “Mitch encouraged everyone to sing to it and they did,” the rep told PEOPLE. “People sang.”
Shiva, a Jewish grief custom, starts at 5 p.m. Tuesday, and guests were seen holding postcard-sized invitations with a black-and-white picture of Winehouse on them.
