A glowing Amy Winehouse bounced back from her recent health problems to sing at Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday concert in Hyde Park last night.

The 24-year-old singer belted out renditions of her hit songs Valerie and Rehab in front of the 46,664-strong crowd, before returning to the stage at the climax of the gig for a rendition of The Special AKA’s hit Free Nelson Mandela with Jerry Dammers and the Soweto Gospel Choir.

Teaming her signature beehive and heavy black eyeliner with a cream and black mini-dress, Winehouse looking remarkably tanned and healthy compared to her pale demeanour a few days ago.

Winehouse left a private London hospital on Monday after being diagnosed with early signs of emphysema following a fainting incident last week.

Mandela gave a brief speech, urging people to act in the fight against poverty and AIDS in Africa.

He said: ‘Many years ago there was a historic concert which called for our freedom. Your voices carried across the water and inspired us in our prison cells far away.

‘Tonight we can stand before you, free. We are honoured to be back in London for this wonderful occasion, celebration. But even as we celebrate, let us remind ourselves that our work is far from complete.

‘Where there is poverty and sickness including Aids, where human beings are being oppressed, there is more work to be done. Our work is for freedom for all.’
