Amy Winehouse Tributes: Adele & Melanie Fiona (Video)
Celebrities continue to unveil their own Amy Winehouse tributes since the famed singer was found dead in her apartment this weekend (7/23). There is no doubt that Amy paved the way for Adele, who has a tight grip on the Billboard charts with her record breaking album 21. Today, the “Rolling in the Deep” singer wrote a blog post dedicated to Ms. Winehouse. Read below:
“Not many people have it in them to do something they love, simply because they love it. “With no fuss and no compromise. But she knew what she was capable of and didn’t even need to try. If she wanted to do something she would and if she didn’t she’d say f— off. It came easy to her and that’s why we all loved her so much. We believed every word she wrote, and it would sink in deep when she sang them. Amy paved the way for artists like me and made people excited about British music again whilst being fearlessly hilarious and blasé about the whole thing.
I don’t think she ever realised just how brilliant she was and how important she is, but that just makes her even more charming. Although I’m incredibly sad about Amy passing I’m also reminded of how immensely proud of her I am as well. And grateful to be inspired by her. Amy flies in paradise xx.”
Canadian songbird Melanie Fiona also paid tribute to one of her favorite artists through song, posting a video she made some time ago:
“Earlier on this year, I made this video and never posted it. Today, it’s all I can do to express my gratitude to one of my favorite artists. May your music live on to inspire others, as it has inspired me. R.I.P. AMY WINEHOUSE. xo.”
The song Fiona sings is “Wake Up Alone” from Winehouse’s Back to Black. Girl can sang! Watch below:
