Amy Winehouse is Gone But a New Documentary Shows She is Far From Forgotten (Video)
It’s been almost four years since the unfortunate and untimely death of Amy Winehouse. Though she is gone, she is not forgotten. A documentary titled Amy is slated to be released to commemorate the late British jazz and soul singer.
The Back to Black musician passed away on July 26, 2011, but through the works of Academy-Award winning director Asif Kapaida, we are able to re-visit the eclectic artist and her talent once again. It was announced yesterday that the A24 Production company is finalizing US distribution for the film.
A short trailer for the documentary features clips of the singer reflecting on her fame. It is haunting to see glimpses of the lively, and beautiful Winehouse in her early life, with her nostalgic sound as the soundtrack. The eerie teaser gives a preview of what this documentary likely is going to mean for her fans.
A true listener of Hip-Hop, Winehouse collaborated with the biggest names in the genre, including Ghostface Killah, Nas and Fugees producer Salaam Remi. Although there isn’t an actual date for the US release of documentary, UK fans can expect the film to hit theaters on July 3rd, which would be just over three weeks before the four year anniversary of her passing.
