Amy Winehouse Remembered at Memorial Service, Cremated Shortly Thereafter

Music executives, former band member, close friends and family gathered Tuesday at a synagogue in Edgware, North London, to mourn Amy Winehouse.

The soulful singer with the beehive, velvety vocals and turbulent personal life took the music world by storm in 2006 with the acclaimed Back to Black.

Tragically, she was never able to overcome her demons and passed away just five years later at age 27. Police found Amy Winehouse dead Saturday.

Her funeral was attended by about 150 people today, including close friend Kelly Osbourne, who wore her hair in Winehouse's signature beehive style.

Mark Ronson, who produced Back to Black, and boyfriend Reg Traviss were also on hand. Not on hand? Ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil, who's in jail.

No one was more visible this afternoon than her father.

"Goodnight my angel," said Mitch Winehouse, who fought for years to help Amy with addiction. "Sleep tight. Mommy and Daddy love you ever so much."

Sad as the occasion was, there were lighter moments.
