Amy Winehouse knew from an early age just how she wanted her music to sound, and her image to be. People from her label say from the get-go she had concrete ideas about absolutely everything connected with it - the production, the musicians she wanted - even the typeface on the sleeve. As a young stageschool alum she wasn't taken seriously enough at first and it's no secret she wasn't altogether happy with how Frank turned out. What those that worked with her early on say, though, is that when Back In Black came out, it was astonishing that everything about it was exactly as she always said she wanted her album to be - even down to the cover art. So, while it's sad that she only left a tiny canon of music, it's fitting that the album that made her famous was exactly the album she wanted to make.

VMAs tribute to Winehouse will feature Tony Bennett, more
August 24, 2011
http://www.cnn.com/2011/SHOWBIZ/Musi...ef=rss_showbiz
(EW.com) -- As expected, the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards will feature a tribute to late British chanteuse Amy Winehouse.
The legendary Tony Bennett, whose duet with Winehouse on "Body and Soul" -- the last recording made before her death -- appears on his upcoming "Duets II," will have the honor of introducing the tribute.
A statement from MTV reveals that the tribute will also debut film of their spring recording session together at Abbey Road Studios in London.
The single and video will be released for purchase by Columbia Records September 14, which would have been Amy's 28th birthday. Proceeds will support the Amy Winehouse Foundation established by the late singer's family.

"It was a thrill to record with Amy Winehouse and when you listen to the recording of 'Body and Soul,' it is a testament to her artistic genius and her brilliance as one of the most honest musicians I have ever known," says Bennett in the statement.
Though MTV did not say what songs would be performed or who would be singing them, it's safe to say that hits like "Rehab" and "You Know I'm No Good" will be a part of the set list.
The VMAs will air live from Nokia Theater L.A. on Sunday, August 28 at 9 p.m.

Amy Winehouse's 'Back to Black' becomes century's bestseller
http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/story?se...rticle-8324399
Wednesday, August 24, 2011
LONDON (KABC) -- Amy Winehouse's Grammy-award winning "Back to Black" has become the best-selling album in the U.K. in the 21st century.
Britain's Official Charts Company, which tracks music sales in the U.K., said Wednesday that the late artist's album overtook James Blunt's 2005 debut album to claim the title this week.

Winehouse's second album had jumped to the No. 1 spot on the charts shortly after the soul singer was found dead in her London house on July 23.

An initial post-mortem failed to determine cause of death. The singer's family said Tuesday that toxicology tests showed Winehouse had no illegal drugs in her system at the time of her death.

An inquest into Winehouse's death begins in October.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Russell Brand's VMA speech about her was very touching and respectful, as were Tony Bennett's words. Addiction is a disease (which is often genetic), and needs to be treated as such.

I agree with you. I didn't really like Bruno Mars singing Valerie, i think i'm used to Amy's version.
