NEW YORK, NY - MARCH 21: Musician Daley attends the 2013 Amy Winehouse Foundation Inspiration Awards and Gala at The Waldorf=Astoria on March 21, 2013 in New York City.
Amy Winehouse was an immensely talented, iconic and inspirational singer and she was a Jewish girl from north London.
Amy was someone who was incredibly proud of her Jewish-London roots. Whereas other families would go to the seaside on a sunny day, we’d always go down to the East End. That was who we were and what we were. We weren’t religious, but we were traditional. I hope, in this most fitting of places, that the world gets to see this other side not just to Amy, but to our typical Jewish family.
When I came out, Amy Winehouse was hot, so I was always compared to Amy ... Now I’m compared to Adele. I get it. We’re both white, English and doing soul. But that’s about it.More quotes »
