He says that in America the organization will focus on children "without access to music education and music therapy." The family announced a donation of $10,000 to the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra.
He was joined by his ex-wife and son. He also performed with a jazz band.
Amy Winehouse died of accidental alcohol poisoning in July.
