Long-time followers of Alfitude may or may not know that Amy Winehouse is my absolute favourite musician of all time.
As the years have come and gone, many have taken on the late artist’s classic songs, but I can truly say that I have not heard anything quite so exquisitely intense and heartbreakingly moving as Danielle Juhre’s version of ‘Back To Black’.
I wish I didn’t play this to be honest, because it’s just hit me as another reminder that we’re never going to listen to new Amy. Longtime collaborator Salaam Remi mixed the unheard vocals into a track from Nas. Heartbreaking, but it’s nice to hear her voice again.
On the 27th October 2006 Amy Winehouse released ‘Back to Black’. I still remember going to the album launch at London’s Bloomsbury Ballroom with a friend who had never heard of her back then and who I had to beg to join me so I wouldn’t go alone.
Anyway… This might excite you if you happen to love Amy as much as I do while also being far more musically gifted than me…

It’s horrible. Sorry. I hate to criticise on here, but this is just nonsense. Proof that not even two music powerhouses like Beyonce and Andre 3000 can match Amy Winehouse at any level. Just my opinion.
The BRIT Award nominations have been announced for 2013, and are as follows. I usually highlight who I think will win every year but I really couldn’t guess this year, so here’s the list- you decide! The winners are announced at the O2 Arena in London on February 20th.
Nas and Amy Winehouse seemed to have an unusual partnership that worked pretty well, so it’s not surprising that he will give ticket proceeds from his March 19th 2013 show at the O2 Arena to the Amy Winehouse Foundation. Support from Meek Mill. Nice.
