A look back at the short but brilliant career of Amy Winehouse, the talented North London singer who passed way on July 23rd, 2011 at age 27. We cover her debut album "Frank" with selections from her 2004 appearance at Glastonbury ('Stronger Than Me") and at the Mercury Prize Awards the same year ("Take The Box"), plus part of an interview she gave to Jonathan Ross that same year.
Her hugely succesful follow-up record "Back To Black" earned her a record five Grammy awards, and we feature part of her performance of "You Know I'm No Good" from that historic telecast, as well as her touching acceptance speech. Amy performed "Rehab", the album's catchiest single for her North American TV debut on David Letterman, and the record's title track during an appearacnce on the MTV live music show "45th At Night".
From her 2007 DVD "Live from London" we sample a bit of "Monkey Man", and part of her band-leading performance of "Free Nelson Mandela" at the ANC leader's 90th birthday party at Hyde Park the following year. We close off with the soaring "Valerie", played at the 2008 Brit Awards alonside "Back to Black" producer Mark Ronson on double-necked guitar.
