Amy Winehouse is the latest act added to the bill for Nelson Mandela‘s 90th birthday concert taking place this month.

She joins the likes of Simple Minds, Razorlight, Queen and Shirley Bassey in appearing at the event, which will raise funds for Mandela’s 46664 Aids charity on 27 June in Hyde Park.

The singer performed her first live set of 2008 at the Rock In Rio event on Saturday, but told the crowd that she “should have cancelled”.

The singer, who was sucking throat sweets throughout, added: “My voice is not singing right and I can’t even hold the microphone. But I wanted to be here so much.”
