Everyone Loves Amy
In the warm up to the posthumous release date of 'Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures' in December, stars have spoken out about the late Amy Winehouse, calling her "an inspiration." Mary J. Blige described how she fell in love with the Camden singer’s sophomore album…
"When I first heard 'Back To Black', I thought it was an automatic, instant classic. The voice, it had so much pain in it but it also had so much soul, warmth and texture," Mary said of her appreciation for Amy’s hit album. "It was incredible; you don't hear voices like that all the time. The album is amazing. She definitely became an inspiration to me right away."
Meanwhile, if getting your hands on some previously unreleased material is not enough this Christmas, you now have the chance to buy the 'Rehab' singer's Disaya dress – which she wore on the cover of 'Back To Black' – if you’re rich, that is.
The dress will be auctioned to raise money for the charity in her memory, and the strapless number is expected to raise approximately £10,000-£20,000. Kerry Taylor, an auction owner, said of the sale - which takes place on the November 29: "What makes this particular dress so special is that it is an emblematic reminder of the magic voice and sublime talent of Amy Winehouse, a sound that resonates with an entire generation."
