“Entering the space I saw Amy on stage with Weller and his band; and then the awe. The awe that envelops when witnessing a genius. From her oddly dainty presence that voice, a voice that seemed not to come from her but from somewhere beyond even Billie and Ella, from the font of all greatness. A voice that was filled with such power and pain that it was at once entirely human yet laced with the divine. My ears, my mouth, my heart and mind all instantly opened. Winehouse.”—Russell Brand, recalling the first time he saw Winehouse perform.
From her beehive hairdo and winged eyeliner to her soul-filled powerhouse of a voice, Amy Winehouse embodied the classic, retro style that would make her one of the most iconic musicians of the decade.
