Amy Winehouse - Mitch Winehouse Hands Out Amy's Clothes To Fans

Amy Winehouse's dad handed out her clothes to grieving fans outside her home yesterday (28.07.11).

Mitch Winehouse stunned crowds holding a vigil outside her house in Camden, north London - where she was found dead on Saturday (23.07.11) - by emerging with outfits, jewellery and trinkets belonging to the star, before distributing them to mourners.

Mitch - who gave a moving tribute to his daughter at her funeral on Tuesday (26.07.11) - told them: "These are Amy's T-shirts. This is what she would have wanted - for her fans to have her clothes.

"Please keep listening to her music. God bless Amy Winehouse."

Fan Brigitte Pividal - who was given a red vest - said: "I have been coming here every day since she died and I didn't expect this. I will cherish this for the rest of my life."

Mitch, 60, was accompanied to the property by Amy's mother Janis, 56, their son Alex and close friend Tyler James as part of the Jewish tradition, Shiva - which requires the family of the deceased to mourn their passing for a week.

The part-time taxi driver also urged the 'Back to Black' singer's fans to take the tributes left for her home with them.

Meanwhile, the rabbi who conducted Amy's funeral has revealed the troubled star had discussed her funeral arrangements with her family before her death.

Speaking about the 27-year-old musician - who had battled drink and drug addiction for several years but was said to have been clean of hard drugs for three years - Rabbi Frank Hellner told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "She was on a course of self-destruction. Although she was fighting at the end and thought she had prevailed, it had gone too far. She was a frail little girl. I think it was too much for her body and she succumbed."
