In honor of the anniversary of Amy Winehouse’s death, The Guardian spoke to a few people who knew her when she was just beginning her career. Reminding me yet again that we were born the same year, I loved the bit about her going back and forth with her friend over who was the better singer between Brandy and Monica (she went from Mo).
I especially love that at the age of 12, she wrote of her future goals:
“I want people to hear my voice and forget their troubles for five minutes.”
That she did.
