Amy with all of us — Alex, Janis, Jane, me and my sister Melody — at the live TV link for the Grammy Awards, 2008.

Amy at one of my shows, October 2010. This was the night she joined me on stage and stood beside me while I sang.

Hand in hand with my lovely daughter, snapped by the paps leaving a hotel in Central London. I was always very proud to be seen with her, especially when she looked as lovely as this.

Amy and I singing together at a family party in 2010 …

… and then dueting on ‘Fly Me to the Moon' at Pizza on the Park, June 2010.

In the studio recording the video for ‘Body and Soul' with Tony Bennett, March 2011.

Amy with my friend Paul's daughter Katie at the 100 Club, Oxford Street, June 2011. This is among the last private pictures known to have been taken of Amy.

The worst week of our lives. With Alex, Reg and Janis, visiting Camden Square and reading the beautiful and moving tributes left to Amy, 25 July 2011.

Not even my daughter's glorious voice and fabulous songs made me as happy as the times when she said, ‘Give me a cuddle, Dad'.
