Amy Winehouse‘s dad Mitch surprised a crowd of fans this week by handing out the singer’s clothes, jewelry, and trinkets outside of Amy’s London home.
“This is what she would have wanted, for her fans to have her clothes,” he explained. Amy’s fans, of course, relished in being gifted with her personal items. Brigitte Pividal said of the tank top she received: “I will cherish this for the rest of my life.” “She was my idol,” declared another.
Mitch (along with Amy’s mother, Janis, and brother, Alex) were at the singer’s house to sort out her belongings after her untimely death. Her most cherished items, like her guitar and notebooks, stayed with the family, as did a pair of ballet flats that were seen in her father’s back pocket. As he got into a taxi, Mitch declared, “God bless Amy Winehouse.”
