Snippet of singer's hit played during 'Fix You'
Coldplay have paid tribute to Amy Winehouse with a brief cover of one of her most famous songs.
During the Splendour In The Grass festival in Australia, Chris Martin added the chorus of Amy‘s hit single ‘Rehab’ into the opening bars of ‘Fix You’.
As you can hear in the video below, the Australian crowd lent their voices to the sing-a-long with gusto.
Posting on their website, the band said:

Last week, Amy’s friend and producer [url=http://www.nme.com/news/amy-winehouse/58307]Mark Ronson was joined onstage by ‘Valerie’ writer and Zutons singer Dave McCabe[/url] for a tribute to the late singer.
