The other day, Amber came into the office and told us how touched and intrigued she was by the documentary "Amy." She showed us YouTube videos and shared some amazing facts about Amy Winehouse that I just had to see what it was all about. That night, I went to my friend's house to veg out and watch the documentary. We were both so happy we did because it really gives insight about Amy that most of the world is unaware. In these unseen interviews with Amy, you realize that every single thing she sang or wrote had serious meaning. She only produced music that was real and came from her life experiences, whether good or bad. Amy's fame rose quickly which was not necessarily her desire unlike a lot of artists. She just wanted to create music for people to enjoy. Alcoholism took Amy's life, but I think it is so important to see behind the scenes and educate ourselves about everything else that was going on.
Listen to Amy along with others on our Spotify playlist here.
