The 'Ceremonials' singer is thankful she was able to perform alongside some of the biggest names in music at VH1's annual event.

Florence Welch say she is "really grateful" to have been given the opportunity to pay tribute to Amy Winehouse at the VH1 Divas Celebrate Soul concert this weekend.

The 'Shake It Out' singer performed with her band Florence and the Machine at last night's event (18th December) where she sang a duet with Wanda Jackson of Amy's signature song 'Back To Black'.

"It's a real honour, actually, to be counted amongst there amazing female performers," Florence told MTV News.

"It's really special for me, because I am still a relatively new artist, and to be up there with these really established singers is amazing for me."

Florence added: "I'm really grateful."

The soul tribute also saw performances from the likes of Jessie J, Kelly Clarkson, Mary J Blige and Jennifer Hudson.

VH1 Divas Celebrate Soul is due to air on the network tonight at 9pm.
