The singer was known to have a special affiinity with the Camden neighbourhood where she lived, and speaking to The Guardian Barabara Windsor said of the event: "I was one of the fortunate people who got to know Amy in the last few years of her too short life. Not only was she one of the greatest talents that this country has ever produced, she was a warm, lovely kind and fun lady. She was what we call in our business a superb bird, that's what she was. Amy loved Camden with a passion and Camden loved her so it's only right her presence should remain here."
