Amy Winehouse played a surprise show in aid of terminally ill children.
The 'Rehab' singer stunned guests at a fundraising dinner for charity Rays Of Sunshine by appearing unannounced to sing a five-song set.
A guest at the bash at Wrotham Park, near Amy's London home, said: "None of us could believe it. You always read negative stories about her and her wild behaviour but she couldn't have been nicer. Her performance really made the evening."
Rays of Sunshine Children's Charity helps grant the wishes of children who are living with serious or life-threatening illnesses between the ages of 3-18 who live in the UK.
Amy is not the first celebrity to have made a surprise visit to help ill children.
In November 2007, Johnny Depp spent four hours at London's Great Ormond Street hospital reading bedtime stories to patients dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow after having his 'Pirates of the Caribbean' costume flown over from Los Angeles.
The Hollywood actor also donated $2 million to the hospital last January after helping to save his daughter's life following treatment after her kidneys failed.
