Dionne Bromfield played gig two hours after Amy Winehouse was found dead
Late 'Back To Black' singer's goddaughter played 'brave' gig in Pontypridd
The 15-year-old, who had been mentored by Winehouse, played at Pontypridd event Ponty's Big Weekend as support to boyband The Wanted, reports BBC News.
Bromfield performed for 20 minutes and showed "no signs of being emotional" during the gig, according to Tim Powell, spokesman for the concert's promoter Orchard Entertainment.
There was no pressure, certainly not under those circumstances. She decided that she wanted to play so it went ahead as scheduled.
Winehouse was found dead in her flat in Camden, London at around 4pm (BST) yesterday. The cause of death has yet to have been officially announced by police, but there have been reports she suffered an ecstasy overdose.
The 27-year-old made her final public appearance with Bromfield earlier this week (July 20), appearing onstage during the teenager's gig at the iTunes Festival at Camden Roundhouse.
Bromfield was the first signing to Winehouse's label Lioness Records
