Though the talented Amy Winehouse can no longer grace us with her wondrous music, the late singer is still very much alive to her father, Mitch Winehouse.
In an interview with The Sun, Mitch discusses how he manages to keep his daughter's memory alive, like communicating with her from beyond the grave when he performs songs from his album, Rush of Love.
"She's standing next to me, every time I go out on that stage. She's there all right, I feel her, sense her. She's in here now saying, 'Just get on with it, Dad.' I'm always speaking to her, all day, every day."
Wow, talk about a strong bond!
We bet Mitch feels especially connected to his daughter today–the third anniversary of Amy's death.
To honor his late daughter's spirit, Mitch puts a lot of energy into the Amy Winehouse foundation, which was established shortly after Amy's passing.
"Amy loved children and through the Foundation, we will be supporting charities that help young people, especially those in need by reason of ill-health, disability, financial disadvantage or addiction. I am now donating all personal fees I receive for interviews and performances, to the Foundation."
It sounds like Mitch is doing his best to cope with a terrible situation and we hope he continues to find comfort in Amy's spirit and memory.
