September 15 next, only for three days, it will be screened at the cinema the film / documentary “AMY” about the life of Amy Winehouse, one of the most talented and sensitive artists than ever. Voice, charisma, talent … unforgettable!

Beyond the controversy (the family Winehouse has distanced himself from the movie believing some parts without foundation), I think this is rather an important opportunity to remember an artist beloved around the world for her voice and her strong personality.

And if you think that Winehouse basically published only three albums, whose third posthumously after her death, her huge success even more “hype”, confirming that, like few other greatest, her voice and her influence will remain immortal.

Little is known or has been said (it was just Amy not to do with pride) of her generosity and philanthropy, much that was coined the term “Ask Amy, and she will do it” just in charitable community. She was often performed for free in favor of foundations to raise funds for children in need; she has associated its image to battle for the climate and the fight against female cancer; shee donated personal items to raise money …. Maybe the press was more careful in her employment and her appearance …, remember that in recent years her no respite, photographing it in the ways and times less appropriate.

Many great artists have been influenced by Amy, someone like Rihanna or Lady Gaga has publicly admitted, others not. Certainly Amy has been and continues to be an inspiration to us all.

Even fashion has often drawn by her look, she influenced the aesthetics and, more deeply, the attitude in general. Many clones during and after her …. but without the same charisma.

Myself I’ve consumed Frank perhaps more than any other album (accidentally discovered in London during a business trip, before the “boom” of Back to Black, I understood immediately the “difference” and power of her voice, calling, from the first listen, a champion). I listen it when I draw, when I want to lose myself in my thoughts, when I think Amy and imagine how it would be her life if perhaps someone, first of all she to herself, had wanted a little ‘more than good.
