Amy Winehouse was born on September 14, 1983, in Southgate, London, she departed on July 23, 2011, in the Borough of Camden, London.  In a short period of time, she made a mark in music, that will span beyond our lifetime.

The trailer below is a taste of the forthcoming documentary, about the British singer that became a musical superstar, who never desired a spot in the limelight.

One of my favorite songs of hers that epitomizes the sentiment depicted in this trailer is “You Know I’m No Good.”

There are four albums that contain the works of Winehouse.  Her debut release “Frank” her second record “Back To Black,” the posthumous CD “Lioness: Hidden Treasures” and the live recording “Amy Winehouse at the BBC.”  She’s also featured on Tony Bennett’s “Duets II,” which was her last recording, singing “Body and Soul.”  I was tremendously fond of her from the first note I heard her sing and look forward to seeing this intimate look at her life.

Amy’s father Mitch Winehouse has denounced the project, he tweeted “I have been asked about the new Amy documentary.  It is the usual load of half truths and distortions by people who were not there.”  He’s further quoted as saying on the Amy Winehouse Forever Facebook page saying: “Been thinking lately about which people would have spoken half truths in the upcoming documentary and if so why in front of a world-wide audience – what would be the motive!”

These comments have me wondering about the validity of the project, but not enough to not see it, as I simply crave another glimpse or note from her.  Mr. Winehouse posed the question as to “What would be the motive?”  Unfortunately, the only answer that I can conclude is capitalism — my motivation is pure love.
